Inside Drag Challenge in a Ford Barra

We’ve featured Tunnel Vision’s Ford Barra powered Falcon previously on fullboost. The car is a real sleeper. It may look beat up on the outside but this is a genuine 8-second street car and we’re about to head out on a week long adventure for Street Machine’s Drag Challenge.

Similar to Hot Rod’s Drag Week, Drag Challenge is the Aussie version organised by the long running and highly popular print and now digital magazine, Street Machine. The event has grown quickly and in short is a torture test for street cars over 5 days with entrants having to hand in drag timeslips each day and drive their car between tracks. This year’s event would start and finish in Adelaide.
