MEREMERE DRAG­WAY

NZ Performance Car - - Guide -

Fea­tur­ing some of New Zealand’s quick­est street-le­gal im­ports and ro­tary-pow­ered ma­chines, the Night Speed Drag Wars se­ries is one of the few events in the coun­try in which driv­ers (with a cur­rent li­cense, war­rant, and rego) can com­pete in any­thing from their high-pow­ered street car to their nana’s old Corolla. This sea­son has been in­creased from six meet­ings to eight, three of which will be on Satur­day nights to make get­ting to the event eas­ier with traf­fic. It’s split into the full range of classes and you must have a hel­met and a min­i­mum of a re­stricted li­cense to drive. All classes, ex­cept King of the Street, must run DOT-ap­proved street-le­gal drag tyres only — race slicks are strictly pro­hib­ited. Priced at $45 a pop to race, with spec­ta­tors pay­ing $15, gates will open at 5.30pm, with rac­ing to kick off at 6.30pm.
