Event > 46th Annual New Zealand Drag Racing Nationals at Taupo Thunder Dragway (Part 1)
The 46th Annual New Zealand Drag Racing Nationals were meant to be held at Taupo Thunder Dragway on the Sunday the 20th of April, but unfortunately the event was postponed due to the bad weather that most of the country received that weekend. Thankfully, the 6th and final round of the New Zealand National Championship Series was able to proceed the next day on Easter Monday, allowing a full field of cars and racers to take advantage of mostly clear skies and a dry track.
All classes were represented at the meeting, including Comp Bike, Competition, Junior Dragsters, Mod Bike, Modified, Super Sedan, Super Stock, Super Street, Supercharged, and the insanely loud and fast Top Alcohol and Top Doorslammers.
KiwiMotoring photographic contributor Siggy Eichholz made the trip to Taupo and provided these stunning shots for your viewing pleasure...
Congratulations to the racers, organisers and supporters for a great season of drag racing across the country. We'll have more photos to share from this event in the next few days.
