Masterton Mo­tor­plex (MMP) has gone from strength to strength over the past few years, and has firmly es­tab­lished it­self as hav­ing the same lev­els of trac­tion as Mere­mere Drag­way. For this com­ing sea­son, the 20th, the MMP crew has big plans. It all kicks off with a test and tune on Novem­ber 11–12, fol­lowed by the first com­pe­ti­tion round, the NZDRA Cen­tral Na­tion­als, on De­cem­ber 9–10. The ev­er­pop­u­lar Dragstal­gia will rock the venue on Jan­uary 6–7, and will dou­ble as the 20th an­niver­sary event, so is set to be huge. And, speak­ing of anniversaries, the 50th NZ Na­tion­als will take place on March 12–13, and is go­ing to be huge — not just as an event, but in what it sig­ni­fies for the lo­cal drag rac­ing scene. From the early days of rac­ing on makeshift straights at Kopuku and Wiri, to a world-class fa­cil­ity in the lower North Is­land, this is re­ally worth cel­e­brat­ing. For rac­ers who’ve not yet made the trip to the venue, this sea­son looks like the one to do it!
