Sydney Dragway Featured On Sydney Weekender
We all know paying a visit to one of Sydney Dragway's events is a fantastic weekend out, now, thank to the TV show Sydney Weekender, the rest of NSW is going to know about it as well!
Mike Whitney and the crew visited Sydney Dragway during the 2012 Nitro Champs in order to film a story on things to see and do around the Sydney Metropolital area.
After retiring from international cricket, Mike Whitney first appeared on Sydney Weekender back in 1994, and since then has loved every minute of it.
Over the years, Mike has hosted Sydney Weekender from all over New South Wales; from Eden in the south, to Tibooburra in the far north-west of the state.
“Would you believe, I’m still finding out about new places you can go to for your weekend,” he says.
One of those “new” places was Sydney Dragway. By his own admission Mike Whitney was blown away! Not only by the spectacle, noise and brute horsepower of the vehicles but by the amount of families and kids that attended the event. His perceptions about drag racing were changed dramatically and will be portrayed on this weekend's show.
Sydney Weekender featuring the Nitro Champs can be viewed this Saturday from 1:30pm on 7-Two and from 5:30 on channel 7
