Read SuperCharged for Top Fuel success

The new partnership, source by Top Fuel Australia, will see multiple Australian Top Fuel champion, Steve Read and Read Speed Racing (RSR) compete at the penultimate Calder Park (Melbourne) Top Fuel Championship series round and the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway.

“I am really looking forward and thrilled to have SuperCharge Batteries on board for the Calder Park and Nationals events and introducing SuperCharge Batteries to Top Fuel drag racing,” Read said.

“I have not raced in Melbourne for over 12 years. Calder Park is where I first started racing in Australia, at the 1992 Nationals and the last time I raced in a championship at Calder was the 2001 Nationals, which I won.

Supercharge Batteries Marketing Executive, Nick Bensley; said SuperCharge Batteries is looking forward to a successful partnership with Read Speed Racing at the final two rounds of the 2013 Australian Top Fuel Drag Race Championship series.

“SuperCharge Batteries has been a leader in the Australian battery market for 30 years and Steve Read has raced on the world and Australian drag race stage for over 40 years, we believe a perfect partnership to launch SuperCharge Batteries into a new Australian motorsport market,” Bensley said.

In a career spanning more than 40 years, Read, affectionately known as 'The Pom' after migrating to Australia from Britain in 1993, has won two Australian Top Fuel Championship series, an Australia Top Alcohol Championship series, six Australia Nationals titles, including four in Top Fuel and two in Top Alcohol, a Summernationals and Winternationals titles and 21 championships in Europe.
