BATHURST

Today’s the big day for Aussie motorsports fans when Mount Panorama comes alive. What’s in your DNA - Red or Blue?

Can Scott McLachlan, pole-winner and track record holder, and perhaps the most talented Kiwi race driver ever, take yet another podium and claim that Bathurst win?

FRONT ENGINE DRAGSTER CHALLENGE MOMENTUM BUILDING

This season is promising to be a standout at Masterton Motorplex, and as well as having loads of door-car and supercharger action there is also the FED Challenge, which is shaping up to be yet another star attraction.

FED’s are a nostalgic front-engined dragster class that were ‘superseded’ in mainstream competition many decades ago due to the inherent dangers involved in having an engine in front of the driver. But with the resurgence of the popular and time-proven nostalgia classes, these FEDs drivers and crews are keen as to get these white-knuckle expresses out there. These guys and gals certainly haven’t forgotten how to put on a good show, and if you want wheels-up ‘digger’ action you need to check this class out!

If you have a FED and haven’t entered yet, it’s easy - just click on the link and flick a message through to the FED Challenge admin.

See you at the track!
