Fond mem­o­ries of drag races

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

I have re­ally fond mem­o­ries of the Porirua drags (Flash­back, Novem­ber 11).

We looked for­ward to the event each year.

In those days my for­mer hus­band and I were in Porirua City Rod­ders Hot Rod Club and he used to drive his Ford Popular in the drags.

It was a great fam­ily day out and pro­vided petrol­heads and car en­thu­si­asts with an op­por­tu­nity to blow the cob­webs out of their cars in a safe place.

It was an en­joy­able and en­ter­tain­ing day out.

My sons are now drag rac­ers and race at Taupo’s Thun­der Drag­way and at Master­ton Mo­tor­plex, be­cause there is nowhere else to go.

The port road track is not long enough for se­ri­ous drag rac­ers.

My fam­ily would love to see the drag rac­ing back in Porirua again
