WILD BUNCH WARS SET TO ROCK MASTERTON, JANUARY 2020

Wild Bunch NZ in association with Kumeu Classic Car and Hot Rod Festival is proud to announce the official return of the breed, with a 16 car show set to entertain and light up the Masterton Motorplex on January 4th and 5th as part of the annual DRAGSTALGIA event.

After the wildly successful return of the Wild Bunch earlier this year, the class has seen unprecedented growth and interest with well over 25 cars either committing to or expressing interest in competing at future events.

The invited field will consist of new cars set to debut to some of the classes originals. The diversity and unpredictability of the original class remains, upgraded and improved to create a show not previously seen. From wild smokey burnouts to insane edge of your seat passes, the Wild Bunch is just that, so mark the date on your calendar because you won't want to miss it.

Wild Bunch Wars is set down as a 2 day event with day one consisting of a heads up "teams race" and day two the main individual battle. With 19 cars pre-entered already, the teams race will also double as qualifying for the 16 car show on Sunday, and with a prize pool of over $4k, the action will be fast, exciting and down right brutal. More details of the event will be released here and also on the Wild Bunch NZ facebook page so keep an eye out for exciting announcements, competitions and driver profiles as we close in on race-day.

An event of this nature doesn't just happen without support, so it's with great pleasure wild Bunch NZ would like to announce that Ken and Desma Galvin from Kumeu Classic Car and Hot Rod Festival have come on board as naming rights sponsor for the event, and without their involvement and that of all our associate sponsors Wild Bunch NZ wouldn't be able to bring you the spectacle that will be "WILD BUNCH WARS".

The facebook page Wild Bunch NZ is where you will find all of their sponsor announcements, event details, photographic history and very soon a bunch of unique merchandise for sale. It is also where you will soon find details of a second event later in the year, so check back often and share it around.

WILD BUNCH IS BACK BABY!!

great work to the people who had the idea and then the lets just race attitude to get Wild Bunch back. Long may it continue and get NZ Drag Racing back to the top again.

Marc Bolan

Can't wait it's going to be a good one Alan Snow

Guess most of the slammer class will be racing here? If it's slower than 6.40 it's not a slammer but S/charged outlaw or wild bunch car?

Matthew Waterreus Bro we need to definitely go to Dragstalgia again.

WILD BUNCH SET TO RETURN TO KIWI TRACKS AFTER 20 YEAR ABSENCE

After more than 20 years the hugely popular WILD BUNCH class is about to re-launch in New Zealand, with the wheels set in motion to muster a field of around 16 Wild Bunch cars to compete in rounds being planned for the upcoming race season. Wild Bunch was the ultimate class to watch for many years at the drags, with huge side-by-side half-track burnouts forever etched into our memories, and wild wheels-up launches, and skin-of-the-teeth racing with the odd near-miss always sure to get the spectators to their feet. This was the class that everybody talked about - and plenty still do. With plenty of work going on behind the scenes it's likely that there will be some WILD BUNCH ACTION happening at a track near you - for more info, and to keep up to date on the latest, hook up with the guys at the WILD BUNCH NZ Facebook page!
