Territory secures two rounds of Top Fuel Championship

Some of the fastest cars on earth will visit Darwin and Alice Springs when they each host a round of the 2022/2023 Burson Auto Parts Australian Top Fuel Championship (BAPATFC).

The opening round of BAPATFC Season 2 will take place at Red CentreNATS, the ultimate festival of wheels, in Alice Springs on 2 September 2022.

The grand finale will take place at the Darwin Triple Crown Supercars event in 2023, date to be confirmed.

This is in addition to the Season 1 BAPATFC final taking place at this year’s Merlin Darwin Triple Crown from 17-18 June 2022 at Hidden Valley Raceway.

The BAPATFC is now a national event, with rounds in every jurisdiction that has a suitable drag strip but, as the best place to host motorsport events, the Territory is the only one to secure two rounds.

BAPATFC organiser Andy Lopez said the Territory is a natural home for motorsports.

“When Top Fuel Season 1 heads to Darwin to run alongside Supercars and Superbikes for the first time this June, it will be the wildest motorsport event in Australia this year,” he said.

“It will be an opportunity to enjoy the most ridiculously powerful motorsport on earth with a variety of other high-horsepower activities. Festival-style, engaging events are what everyone wants, whether they be racers, fans or sponsors. That’s what we will be delivering in Darwin and Alice Springs.”
