The dates have been announced for this year’s NHRA National Hot Rod Show with the event taking place on the weekend of October 15th-16th. The organising committee is in full swing putting everything into place for the weekend.
The club has also announced that Mobil Oil has come on board as an associate sponsor, this means all major sponsorship is in place. All indoor trade display sites have been sold (they all will be car related of course), but there is still limited room outside for some more trade displays.
Hawera is gearing up for the weekend with the town business association organising a Hot Rod themed shop window display competition, and a market day with the local rock & roll club on the Saturday morning.
On Friday night the bar of show sponsor Rough Habits are holding a “Rock FM” party, so this will be a great night with lots of give-aways and fun. The Lazyboyz band is booked for Saturday night’s dinner.
The trophy’s are designed and are going to be very unique this year so if you want to win one, better get your entry sorted.
A supporter’s package will be announced soon, for people wanting to be involved in all the weekends activities, but don’t have a car in the show. These will be limited numbers, as the Saturday night dinner will be capped at 300 people.
The club will have preferential parking for Hot Rods & Street machines on show weekend and already a few clubs are planning rod runs to the show.
Remember to get your entries in before the 31st August for this great weekend. Entry forms can be downloaded from the NZHRA website www.hotrod.org.nz
