Yet again, what an epic weekend it's been at masterton Motorplex!
The 50th NZ Nationals brings to a conclusion the drag racing season at Masterton Motorplex. It's no exaggeration to say that this season has been the best that we've had so far - we've made more improvements to the track and it's facilities, as we'll continue to do, we've had the track record smashed, we've been wowed by a Top Fuel Dragster, and we've been entertained by hundreds of dedicated drag racers. We've seen more personal-bests than ever before, and we're seeing more and more competitors and spectators both young and old appearing at MMP to be a part of the action. Once again, we'd like to thank you all for playing your part in making this season the best yet.
The whole team would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of you who made the 50th NZ Nationals weekend so enjoyable and memorable. To all of the racers and their crews, to all of the sponsors who invest in drag racing, and to the fantastic spectators who come along to watch this amazing motorsport - we're really glad that you joined us! We've received lots of messages from people letting us know how much they enjoyed their time at the track - thanks to you all for the feedback! To all the teams that achieved personal-bests, broke national records, or became National Champions - CONGRATULATIONS.
We've got some extremely talented photographers who cover the drag racing at Masterton Motorplex, and one of our favourites is Graham Meiklejohn from Grahams Glimpses Photography. Graham does a fantastic job of capturing the moments in dazzling sharp colour, and he makes them available here for everyone to see. Cheek out he album of pictures below, and please share, tag and 'like' his pics!
