LOXTON’S Jessica Voigt is
quickly making a name for herself
on the drag racing circuit with a
second place finish recently in a
major event in Portland, Victoria.
Voigt who was competing at
just her second race meeting,
lost the final to Derek Wills of
Melbourne, by 6/1000 of a sec-
The 23-year-old said the race
meeting was an interesting experi-
“I got a good light in the final,
but the car got a bit crooked and
he caught me in the end,” she said.
“I was still happy to even be
“We had a few issues with the
car in the practice on the Friday
night beforehand, so we didn’t
think we would do that well.
“So to make the final was pret-
ty awesome and only lose by that
much was even better.”
According to Voigt it was never
a matter of if, but when she would
get involved in the sport.
“Dad has always been involved
in it (drag racing),” she said.
“He raced over 20 years ago
and has always had a car and my
two older brothers have raced pre-
“So there was always a chance
I would get into it.
“I just wanted to have a go and
see how it went and here we are.”
Voigt said one of her favourite
things about drag racing was her
family’s passion for the sport.
“It is a really family orientated
sport,” she said.
“We all go to the races and they
crew for me.
“It is great to have them there
for advice and support at race
“At the start I was a bit nervous
with how I would go.
“I didn’t know if I really would
get the hang of it, but having them
helping me out has really helped
and has given me a lot more con-
Voigt is keeping things simple
when it comes to her future in
“I just want to get to as many
races as I can,” she said.
“It is a bit hard because they
are so far away and Dad works
away so he can’t get to them all.
“I want to do the best that I can
and have a bit of fun.”
Voigt’s next meet will be in
Mildura on Easter Saturday.
