Each class winner will receive a trophy while the overall winner will also win a trip to Optima’s OUSCI and SEMA show in the USA.

R&J Batteries are proudly an official importer of Optima Batteries in Australia and New Zealand. The colour coded range of high performance AGM batteries deliver pure power in across their respective application focuses. The RED, YELLOW and BLUETop® batteries cater for AutomotiveDeep cycle and Marine applications respectively.

Optima Red Top AGM batteries are the ultimate starting battery designed to deliver the strongest burst of ignition power with reliable starts every time. The Red Top is ideal for hot rods and street cars or any other application requiring a strong starting battery, such as those entering one of the racing segments in the Ultimate Street Car Competition.


The BlueTop and YellowTop are both dual purpose batteries designed for Deep-Cycle and cranking power. The difference is that the BlueTop has been custom designed for use in Marine applications whereas the Yellowtop is structured to take the abuse of 4WD, off-roading or to crank out the decibels. Any entrant participating in a 4×4 class or the Sound & Vision segment would benefit from having a high performing dual purpose battery such as the Optima YellowTop under the hood.
