NZ Performance Car - - Prison Riot -

On the day of the event, 27 driv­ers showed up, de­spite the crap weather threat­en­ing over­head. But, if you ask us, the clouds kind of suited the run­down and derelict venue, giv­ing it an even eerier feel. Be­tween the burnout pad (the old court­yard for the cell­mates) and a drift track, which worked its way around some build­ings, there was plenty of ac­tion go­ing on, and, with a some­what damp sur­face, cars with any power could throw down and their tyre stock would re­main in good sup­ply. There were no win­ners, no tro­phies, and the only judges to im­press were your mates await­ing their run. It was more about throw­ing down some runs with good friends or pop­ping tyres on the burnout pad in a very laid-back and chilled en­vi­ron­ment. Yes, it rained a lit­tle, which was not ideal, but ev­ery­one stayed the course and had a very fun day by all ac­counts, just as Sean had hoped.

Will it hap­pen again? Who knows, but, for those who did get to at­tend, it will go down in his­tory as a damn good riot.
