The event is open to all Oldschool or Retro cars and bikes. Special dispensations for modern cars may be granted to members.

We will  be running the full timing system this year, the same as last year. The afternoon will consist of competitive DYO races but the electronic timing will be in use throughout the day. So you'll receive an ET and a trap speed at the end of each run as well as a printout of all your vital statistics including your reaction and 60 foot times. Exactly what you need to see where you could gain an extra tenth of a second in your Hillman Imp and drop it into the 22 second bracket.

Rules, requirements and answers to some frequently asked questions:

  • An Oldschool or retro car or bike running NO FASTER than an 11.0 second ET
  • Pre 1990 vehicles take preference for entries but we will consider some vehicles that fall outside this category for oldschool members.
  • ONE entry per vehicle. If you want to bring more than one vehicle then that is fine, but each vehicle will need to be paid for separately
  • Registration and WoF, or for non-roadworthy vehicles an NZDRA tech inspection or MSNZ logbook
  • A crash helmet, up to current standards
  • Covered footwear
  • All Rotary powered manual vehicles will need a scatter shield or approved bellhousing (with proof of approval). Automatic transmission equipped rotary powered vehicles running an ET of SLOWER than 10.0 seconds are exempt from this rule.
  • Radiator overflow and secure battery
  • Semi slicks are permitted, as are stripped interiors and open headers. No full slicks as the rules permit DOT rated tyres only.
  • We are not running a prepped track. This pushes entry fees up by at leas twice the cost. Be careful.
  • No passengers permitted
  • No static burnouts on the track other than on the designated burnout area. 
  • Fire and clean up gear is provided by the track team, but if you cause a spill or require use of the extinguishers you will be expected to reimburse them for these costs
  • No animals permitted on the track.
  • No alcohol or drug consumption permitted on track, pits or staging area.

Put the date in your calendar and and start preparing your vehicles (and yourselves) for the day! Please tell your friends with old vehicles that they're welcome to enter! We encourage new faces and cars at this event, just like at all oldschool events.

Last year was a beauty so let's step it up again and make this one even better! 

If you have any questions or comments, please ask them in the DISCUSSION THREAD or send a PM to myself or @TimShadboltfan27

This is shaping up to be another good event! Still space for a bunch more cars, we can deal with up to 100 cars (we had 76 pre-entries last year and a few extras on the day). 

There's still time to get a WOF and rego......
