One of two popular new events to hit the Masterton drag strip this season is the all-new class called ‘Outlaw 71’. While the name may conjure up thoughts of angry-looking bikers overtaking dangerously, the reality couldn’t be any further from the truth. The Outlaw 71 class is made up of Supercharged race cars – the kind we all love to watch! Racers from all over New Zealand will compete in a format that means they come out in all rounds of racing throughout the weekend to gain valuable points in the 5-round National Series.
The name stems from the Supercharged Outlaws, and is open to cars running any belt-drive Roots or screw-type supercharger, typically known as ‘71’ series of superchargers. Loud, fast, and exciting, the class is based on traditional black belt supercharged cars, and with a prize pool of $15,000 and with full 16 car fields expected, this is going to be one serious competition!
To enter, cars have to run faster than 8 seconds, but slower than 6.5 seconds over the quarter mile. Qualifying is based on reaction time, and the racing is DYO format. It’s also racer return, so all vehicles in the group come out and race all rounds - win or lose! That means you get to see more of the cars you love.
The Outlaw 71 group will form part of the normal full Masterton Motorplex race meeting, and will also see the group converging on four tracks, over five different meetings, with the December 8th & 9th being the first and then returning to Masterton for the February 16th & 17th for the grand finals. There will also be limited edition Tee shirts and stickers, and free limited edition colour posters!
Be part of history with this great new format and come along to be entertained!
