DRAGSTALGIA PHOTOS - BY GRAHAMS GLIMPSES PHOTOGRAPHY

The team at Masterton Motorplex would like to send out a huge thanks to all of the competitors and spectators who helped to make DRAGSTALGIA meeting a huge success. While the weather didn't play ball for the full two days, the WILD BUNCH, Vintage Gassers, FED's, and many hot rods and street machines put on an outstanding display on Saturday and Sunday morning, and there was loads of exciting drag racing, along with a few unfortunate thrills and spills.

As always Masterton Motorplex is spoilt by the number of incredibly talented photographers we have snapping away at our events - here are a selection from track photographer Graham Meiklejohn from Grahams Glimpses Photography.
You can also check out what other photographers have to offer by checking out the Media section of our website; www.mastertonmotorplex.co.nz/photographers-videographers-pages/Featuring Wild Bunch, FED Challenge and Gasser Wars, Saturday 4th Jan 2019. Please tag those you know, Cheers Graham

I've seen these Aeroflow outlaw funnies rock & roll in Australia. Totally totally Amazing. Get your tickets asap you will not stop shaking with excitement.. πŸ‘Œ

What happened to pay at the gate.

Hi team, I have direct contacts at FB if you need assistance with the removal of fake events πŸ™‚ get in touch.

That's bad, just like those sick people setting up fake Australia Bush fire funding pages.

That's so bloody sad

Shocking!!!πŸ™„

Has that www.Andra. Com.au website been informed about this?

And you complain to Facebook and they say it doesn't breach community standards

Assholes....

Appears theres a 2020 Round 8 event by these scum as well. www.facebook.com/events/758462991310012/ Watch out for someone also trying to live stream the Aeroflow cars. We had an idiot posting in groups over here in WA, still psoting the day of the event after the Aeroflow cars had to cancel 2 days prior from a road closure.

Great photos πŸ‘ thanks

Great day racing

Real passion and love showing in these cars

Awesome thanks Jo

Love coming here and have done so for years.finally had a price increase from $20 - $25 which after all this time is cool. I now see next month entry will be $30 πŸ€” what happened to the time boards and the spill crew ?? Took 1 hour 20min to clean up a blown diff which doesn't make for very good entertainment ! Seemed to be a bit unorganized compared to other meets.unfortunately with gas going up entry fee going up mite be time to just do one meeting not all 😟 Masterton Motorplex International Dragstrip
