Back when drag echoed in Porirua
This week’s Flashback picture took one family back a few years. Alicia Eastham recognised her brothers, father and grandfather in the picture and says the 1997 image was from the Porirua street drags behind the Warehouse.
The Eastham family is well-known among drag circles, but the Porirua drags no longer take place.
‘‘The only street drags they have these days are Port Road drags in Petone,’’ Eastham said.
‘‘We normally go to Masterton Motorplex, Taupo Thunder Dragway and Fram Autolite Dragway Auckland.’’
