Locktoberfest in Taupo this weekend
Zeroclass Co. is renowned for being the biggest and baddest drift festival provider and they are living up to that with Locktoberfest 2016.
This coming weekend, Bruce Mclaren Motorsport Park will be home to the sound of screeching tyres, revving engines, and the smell of burnt rubber.
This is because ome of the country’s best grassroots drifters come together for yet another grassroots drift festival.

It is the second time the annual event has been held in Taupo.

Both Saturday and Sunday will feature some of the North Island’s advanced and professional drifters, while Monday will showcase the up-and-comers and those new to the drift circuit.
The weekend is jam-packed with day and twilight drift sessions, team drifting, live DJ’S, big entry mini competition, exclusive food stands, Zeroclass Streetwear stand.
There will even feature an after party on Saturday night at Element Bar.
