Welcome to the official Mopar Rumble event website.

28 May 2015 — That’s it… for now.

It is with deep regret that we are announcing the end of the Mopar Rumble car show for the foreseeable future. Apart from the regular rescheduling due to bad weather, we consider each year's event has been a great success. The Mopar Rumble was Sydney's first Mopar-only drag racing event, and during its five year history, very quickly became one of the biggest Mopar car shows in the country. We would like nothing more than to be able to continue delivering this fantastic Mopar event for years to come, but the ongoing pressures of organising an annual car show of this scale have taken their toll on the small band of volunteer organisers.

Since the first Mopar Rumble in 2010, the event has been plagued with bad weather, which has regularly resulted in rescheduling, placing even greater pressure on the organisers. Regular changes in Sydney Dragway management have also hindered the club's ability to establish long term working relationships. We also feel that the Mopar Rumble event has focused too much of our attention on a single day of the year, rather than an all-year-round investment in our car club.

Things may change, and the Mopar Rumble may return in years to come, but for the time being, the event will no longer be on the Mopar calendar. The Regals will be remaining very active in the Mopar community with a number of other, smaller events, so keep an eye out on the events page of our website.

We would like to thank the organisers, sponsors, volunteers, participants and spectators who have helped to make the Mopar Rumble the fantastic event it has been.

9 December 2013 — Best Burnout and RT Trophy Winners for Mopar Rumble 2013

A big thank you to everyone who attended yesterday's rescheduled Mopar Rumble 2013. The weather was fantastic, and there was a great turnout of Mopars, contributing to an outstanding day's racing. We also send our apologies to those who made it to the rain-cancelled event on the 10th of November, but were unable to make it back for the rescheduled event.

The two trophies that couldn't be contested or awarded on the 10th of November were the Best Reaction time and Best Burnout. The winners from yesterday are as follows:

Best Reaction Time – Mopar
James Anthony – VG Regals Sedan 543ci
.004 reaction time

Best Burnout – Mopar
James Anthony – Piloting Andrew Pana’s 383ci Plymouth Duster

5 March 2015 — Trophy Winners for Mopar Rumble 2014

We did things a little differently this year and omitted the trophy presentation to save time, PA hire and MC hire. We also didn’t want our participants waiting around all day, however we did hand out all of the show 'n' shine trophies on the day.

It wasn’t until later in the day that we were given the results of the “Sponsors choice“ and “Racing” trophies. Those who won a sponsor’s choice trophy, or a trophy in the racing categories will receive them in the mail shortly.

(We need the following “Sponsor’s choice” trophy winners to contact us via email at info@regals.com.au so we can get your mailing address for sending the trophies. They are the White Plymouth Fury, number plate 64FURY and the Orange and White Plymouth Belvedere, number plate BESTFX).

Although no competitors entered the burnout comp on the rescheduled date, a couple of entrants did some skids at the November Rumble (rained out) and by default they will be judged the winners of the burnout trophies.

Congratulations to the trophy winners on the day! We hope you enjoyed the day and we appreciate your participation.

Regards,
The Rumble Team.

26 November 2014 — Mopar Rumble Rescheduled — 25 January 2015

Our apologies go out to those who came from near and far to the Mopar Rumble on the 16th, only to be turned around by the staff at the gate. From our end, we truly believed the event would go ahead. The forecast was for clearing showers from 10.00 am and the bureau was spot on, as we ended up having perfect weather for racing.

However a lack of communication between the track and us (the organisers) meant that we were finding out second hand that the event had been cancelled, some 35-45 minutes before we were officially notified.

Again, our apologies to anyone who wasn’t given the correct information in due time regarding the cancellation. The decision to cancel any event at the venue is made solely by the staff and management of Sydney Dragway and we rightfully accept any decision made by them.

After meeting with track management, we are confident we have worked through any future communication issues, and with that said we are announcing a rescheduled date for the Mopar Rumble.

The event will be held on the Sunday the 25th of January 2015. We hope to see everyone who supports the Mopar Rumble down at Sydney Dragway, and remember it's not just about racing. We have plenty of trophies on offer for the show n shine section of the Rumble. Please watch this page for further updates.

16 November 2014 — Rumble cancelled due to bad weather… again!

Once again, Sydney weather has dealt a savage blow, and the pouring rain has resulted in the track's decision to cancel this year's Rumble.

It's too soon to say whether it will be rescheduled, but keep an eye on this website for any further news.

13 November 2014 — Mopar Merchandise

We have some exciting news for Mopar fans attending the Rumble this Sunday. Mopar and Suttons City Chrysler Jeep Dodge will be bringing a huge amount of Mopar merchandise with them, available at awesome prices. Here are some examples:

24 October 2014 — Trophies

Judging will take place between 10.00am and 11.30 am on the day. Please park with the other Mopars so the judges can view your car.

7 September 2014 — “Settle the Score” drag racing

“Settle the Score” drag racing is an exciting new concept that will debut at the 2014 Mopar Rumble. Here’s how it works:
• No burnouts,
• No staging,
• No lights and
• No times.

When the chequered flag drops, you hit the loud pedal and go for it. The first one to the end wins. If you’ve ever wanted to settle a bet with your mate as to who has the quickest ride, this is a great entry point into drag racing.

With Settle the Score drag racing you can line up your mate without the “formalities” of traditional racing. It’s just like racing at the traffic lights only it’s legal! Settle the Score racing will be held as a 30 minute session during the day at the Rumble. If you enjoy yourself, you are welcome to rejoin the queue when the lights and time board are turned back on for normal racing.

7 September 2014 — We’re back!

Mopar Rumble is back at Sydney Dragway for 2014 on Sunday the 16th of November 2014.

We are proud to have event sponsors Shannon’s and Sutton’s City Mopar back on board. Along with them we welcome our third event sponsor, Penrite Oil. In addition to our usual schedule of events, we’ve added a lot more trophies to the show ‘n’ shine section and we’ll be utilising the shaded area at the top of the grandstand for our merchandise, traders and sponsors. We are also debuting a brand new concept at this year’s Rumble called “Settle the Score” racing which, will feature for a portion of the day.
