AUCKLAND INVASION ENTRANT PREVIEW

Over the coming weeks we'll be showcasing some of the cars and bikes that have confirmed their attendance at the the upcoming Auckland Invasion and Round 2 of the new Group One National Series - February 16th & 17th 2019.

Let's get started with Cameron Paterson, and his front engined dragster (FED).

Named 'Free Ranger 2', Cam's FED has a wheel base of 205 inches, and runs a 410 small block Chevy with a 6-71 blower, and 2 speed Powerglide.

Cameron gives us a run-down on his drag racing career so far: "I have been racing since I was 6, going through the ranks. My first achievement was 2nd place in the Junior Dragster competition in 2009/2010 season. My second achievement was runner-up in the IHRA competition class 2013/2014 season, and my third achievement was winner in the NZDRA national series competition class in 2014/2015 season".

We recon that's an outstanding effort for such a young competitor, and with a best ET in this new car of 7.34 seconds at 185 mph so far, we can't wait to see Cams progress!

Cam would like to thank the following people:

Crew
Jim Paterson (Dad) – is my crew chief
Steve Moore who built the motor is our tuner.
Maria Paterson (Mum) is tow car driver.
Lance Mayhall is on starter.
Vic Mayhall is back up girl.

Full competition meeting – open to all classes, on both days.

Saturday – Full competition meeting
Sunday – Full competition meeting

Gate entry: $20 per person per day, under 14’s free
Gates open: 9am Saturday, 8am Sunday
Racing starts: 10am Saturday, 9am Sunday

There are just Just 27 days to wait for the most anticipated meeting this season at the Motorplex. Whenever the Auckland teams come to play there are points to be proven, there's pride to be maintained, and there are bragging rights to be upheld. The Auckland Invasion always provides a top entertainment spectacle, and with the all new Group One National Series is thrown into the mix, this is set to be an excellent weekend not to be missed! If you haven't booked your accomodation don't delay as it will fill fast.... www.mastertonmotorplex.co.nz/accommodation/
