Some great news for hard-core Kiwi drag racing fans not making the annual pilgrimage across the ditch!400 Thunder Championship Drag Racing announces - 400Thunder.tv
400 Thunder Championship Drag Racing has announced today 400Thunder.tv a new SVOD service for international fans to subscribe and watch the 400 Thunder Championship Drag Racing Series this weekend at the Gulf Western Oil Winternationals. Off the back of its announcement with Kayo and Fox Sports as the host broadcasters domestically in Australia 400 Thunder have decided to launch its own “subscription video on demand” (SVOD) service for international race fans across the world who are unable to view the Australian Kayo broadcast.
Tony Wedlock, Chairman of 400 Thunder says whilst 400Thunder.tv will operate on a Pay Per event basis where fans can subscribe and watch each event live and on-demand commencing this week with the Gulf Western Oil Winternationals held on the 11-13th June 2021, it will expand to all events in the 2021/22 400 Thunder calendar and also host a range of other category and on-demand content moving forward. 400Thunder.tv is expected to go live for international race fans to secure their pass on Wednesday the 9th of June and can be accessed by visiting 400Thunder.tv.
It's with much sadness that we have learned that Pete 'Black Pete' Gullery, the friendly, smiling face in the pre-stage lanes for many years at Masterton Motorplex, has passed away following a brief illness. Pete was a long-time hot rodder; a member of Street Cruisers in the mid-'80's, then later of Union Streeters, with a bunch of rides including his brown and black '56 F100, '56 Customline, and of course his well-known black roadster. He was also a long-time helper and supporter of Masterton Motorplex for over two decades, starting out at the Hood Aerodrome with set-up and tear-down of the track, then with the timing gear, and then with running the pre-stage, along with his awesome daughter, Marina 'Subby' Carn. Pete was a staunch, loyal, and dedicated man, who was considered a great friend to many, and he will be sorely missed. The Masterton Motorplex Board would like to pass on their sincere condolences to Pete's friends and family, and especially to his bestie and daughter, Marina Carn. RIP Pete, godspeed brother.

We have lots of talented photographers at any given race meeting, but it's not too often we get to show you what's happening down at the 'deep end'. One of Masterton Motorplex's hard-working volunteers, Marc, is a keen photographer, with a difference; he shoots using old-school 35mm slide and Ektar Chrome film, which produces really vivid and unique shots. It's not uncommon to see Marc at full speed going between packing parachutes and snapping some quality images with a difference. We hope you like this selection. Thanks Marc! ... See MoreSee Less
