Nitro Slam postponed to 29 January
The Perth Motorplex wishes to advise that the drag racing event scheduled for this Saturday (8 January) has now been postponed to the 29th of January.
The House and Land Package Nitro Slam event has been rescheduled to allow sufficient time for competitors, spectators and other event participants to comply with the WA Government’s recently announced health measures (which require double vaccination for venue entry) to ensure maximum event success for racers and spectators alike.
The huge one-day event will host spectacular nitro racing for all the family from the WA Nitro Max Series, the Direct Mining International Summer Slam Series and Dragon Bikes Nitro Bike, plus WA’s toughest Sportsman racers.
There will be lots to see off the track as well – before racing begins, the pits will be the place to be with a special ‘Pit Party’ allowing fans to get up close and personal with all of the Nitro Cars and Doorslammers, with their drivers ready to meet the fans, pose for photos and sign autographs alongside the Sportsman racers at 4.00pm.
“The Perth Motorplex is committed to complying with the restrictions handed down by the WA Government on Monday afternoon which came into effect at 6.00am on Tuesday morning,” Evolve Facilities Management Commercial and Operations Manager, Paul Trengove, said.
“After consultation with our competitor group and other stakeholders, the decision has been made to postpone the event scheduled for this Saturday to January 29.
“While it was a difficult decision to postpone the event, this move will allow our stakeholders sufficient time to comply with the new WA health orders. This in turn will ensure that when it is held on January 29, the House and Land Package Nitro Slam event will be able to live up to its full potential and provide a fantastic show for spectators.
“We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters including our fans, racers, sponsors, staff, volunteers and contractors for their patience and support as we navigate what has been a rapidly evolving situation.
“We look forward to putting on the best show that we can on January 29, and to a great season of racing ahead.”

Competitors will have their entries and tickets transferred automatically to January 29 and those who withdrew early can re-enter via the competitor system.
