Robin Judd top qualified in the first all five-second Top Doorslammer field in the history of the (Australian National Drag Racing Association) ANDRA Pro Series at Sydney Dragway, Eastern Creek, Saturday, March 24.

Perth-based Judd was in 15th place and out of the eight-car field after not recording a time when the start-light malfunctioned in his lane during the first qualifying session.

Judd then moved straight to the top qualifying spot with a 5.896-second at 249.39mph (401.35km/h) pass in the second session, which saw six of the eight competitors in the five-second zone.

The third session saw Judd consolidate his top qualifying position with a 5.836-second at 251.02mph (403.97km/h) pass, which was also his fastest-ever speed recorded. 

With 10 competitors in the five-second zone, the bump-spot (eighth place) was 5.987 seconds, while the ninth and 10th place competitors recorded 5.99-second passes.

Judd said he was honoured to be at the top of the first all five-second field in Australian Top Doorslammer history.

“A bit of history was made at Sydney. It showed that a lot of the guys (competitors) were all on their game at the same time.

“I’d hate to have been the two that missed the cut – Gary Phillips and John Cannuli – after recording 5.99-second passes and missing the field. I think this is what we will see from now on,” Judd said.
