Six new ANDRA national records have been recorded between the recent South Coast 660 and Festival State Nationals events, held at South Coast Raceway (January 6-7) and Dragway at The Bend (January 13-14) respectively.
At the South Coast 660, Edge Mallis set the 660ft ET record in DD/CB to 5.161 (was 5.279).
Mallis took out the win aboard his Kawasaki H2R after top qualifying earlier in the event, with the Moonee Ponds (VIC) racer taking the win from 2022/2023 Summit Racing Equipment Sportsman Series Champion, Joe Khoury.
“It was a great weekend; we were actually de-tuning it and we still ended up breaking records. It worked out really well,” Mallis said.
“In the final for some reason it lost a bit of air and would not shift gears, but Joe red lit so we still got the win – sometimes you have got to be lucky and when it happens, you have to take it! Thank you to the crew – Daniel Fox, Mike Darcy, and Mick Donaghue – and to Blaze Hansen who was tuning the bike from Queensland.
“It all went faultless – we ran 4.9 on a 5.27 national record and we were still trying to de-tune it to slow it down, so everything was great.”

The Australian National Drag Racing Association Ltd, or ANDRA for short, is a drag racing sanctioning body of Australia.
ANDRA is also officially recognised as the controlling body of drag racing in Australia by Motorsport Australia (formerly known as CAMS) and the Federation Internationale de I’Automobile (FIA)
The organisation was created in 1973 from a more drag racing oriented faction of the original Australian Hot Rod Federation.
Today ANDRA sanctions races throughout Australia at all levels, from Top Fuel to Junior Dragster, on everything from temporary regional tracks to international standard facilities in capital cities.
ANDRA and its members make drag racing a family friendly, safe sport. So come along as a spectator or bring your street car to an “off-street” event and enjoy the excitement that is Australian drag racing. https://www.andra.com.au/
