Hawaya Racing Products president Johnny Vickers announced today that HRP has entered into a contractual agreement with Pete Browne to build their next generation drag bike chassis. Pete is a Motorsports Fabrication Engineer/Welder and brings an engineering degree along with 19 years of race car chassis building and fabrication experience. Pete also has a long history of drag bike experience going back to the 1990’s with his family. Pete’s dad, Ken Browne, campaigned a 88” Turbo Shovel in the 90’s and is a 2-time ADBA Pro Gas National Champion, at one time holding the MPH record at 173 mph. Pete also built the 2011 Turbo Charged 120” Pro Gas bike that his brother, Keith Browne now rides. Keith is the AHDRA 2012 Pro Gas Champion and has run as quick as 6.91 ET @ a record mph of 199.6 mph.

“I have known the Browne family for 20 years, says Johnny Vickers. Ken and I used to race together back in the 90’s in the ADBA series. All of the Browne’s have a reputation for thinking outside the box a bit, and I am like that as well, so it is a great fit for HRP. Pete and I have been working on our new chassis design for a while now and will employ some very innovative, forward thinking concepts. We have our Top Fuel design completed and Ricky House has the first one. We are now constructing our Pro Drag chassis and will have the first one out and running by the Manufacturers Cup race in Bradenton, FL on April 5-7. Our plans are to build new bodywork as well to accent our newly designed chassis. HRP is committed to advancing our sport of Harley Drag Racing and this is just another step of many yet to come.”

HRP is in the process of re-designing their website at the present time. “We have just out grown our old sites capabilities. We should have the new site up within a couple of weeks. We will have much more information on our chassis on the new site, or just e-mail or call us here at HRP.”
