FOUR times Australian Top Fuel Champion Darren Morgan and his team are competing at the West Coast Nitro event in Perth this weekend, for the second round of the 400 Thunder Series.

Darren Morgan Racing are currently second in the 400 Thunder Series Championship, after placing runner up at the first round in November.

Morgan was ultimately beaten at the opening round on a holeshot by American driver Cory McClenathan, with DMR running a 4.67 to McCleanathan’s 4.68.

Alongside DMR will be two Rapisarda Autosport International vehicles and Mark Sheehan competing at the two day event.

DMR has teamed up with long time supporting sponsor AEG Powertools for the full season, which will see the team compete twice at the Perth Motorplex, Sydney Dragway and Willowbank Raceway.

Morgan is excited to be back in the driver’s seat for the second round taking place over Friday and Saturday.

“We are pumped to get back to Perth, it is one of my favourite cities,” Morgan said.

“I love the racing there, the people and the atmosphere, I am always looking forward to getting to race in Perth.”

“It is fantastic for us to have Royal Asphalt once again on board for the Perth events.”

Darren Morgan Racing tuner Ben Patterson is looking forward to expanding the car’s capability.

“Last time we were in Perth we ran 4.66 in the final, this time we are wanting to do even better,” he said.

Morgan and some crew will be staying in Perth after the round to work on the car for the third round, Nitro Max on March 5 and 6.

DMR would like to thank their major sponsors AEG Powertools and Shannons Insurance as well as their many associate partners.

The event will be live streamed at
