WARRNAMBOOL drag racer Glenn Wooster often spends a significant chunk of his year racing or testing his bike.
But due to the coronavirus pandemic the pro-stock bike competitor has not raced since he clocked a venue record 189.39mph in an exhibition run at Westernationals in Perth earlier this year.
The dedicated racer, a former Australian champion and current Thunder 400 series leader, is waiting to see if he restrictions will ease to allow him to attend the Winternationals in Queensland later this year.

The annual drag racing event, the largest championship held outside of North America, usually runs over the Queen's Birthday long weekend but due to the coronavirus it has been rescheduled for September 17-20.
Wooster said he was unsure if he would attend the event, which is a regular meet on his calendar every year.
"We don't know what the do and don'ts are for then and all we can do is try to be prepared for a round to go ahead,"he said.
"In saying that we have got to get across so many state boarders and we are struggle to see it happening at this stage.
"It (Winternationals) is the biggest meet in Australia and I can't see it being the same and Willowbank Raceway would be disappointed as it takes a lot of work to plan and run."
For the time being, Wooster is focusing on his fitness and his dedicated team, lead by developer Trevor Birrell in Adelaide, is making sure his ride is ready to go if given the green light to race in Ipswich.
He has been getting out and riding each morning and is spending more time playing at Christ Church Tennis Club, where he is president.
The Thunder 400 series, which usually starts in November and runs into the following year, could be Wooster's next ride if he can't make it to the Winternationals.
If the series is unable to return this year all the points Wooster has collected to lead the pro-stock championship pre-coronavirus could carry into 2021 but it is yet to be confirmed.
When Wooster jumps back on his bike he will know he has a confidence in a number of his parts after a successful test run at the Westernationals.
