The third round of the Winter Drag Wars series is all on for this Sunday (20 June) at Fram Autolite Dragway in Meremere. It’s the third of six meetings for the season and competitors will be able to enter in two different classes, either heads up for bragging rights against your mates or a DYO class. Now the Winter Drag Wars and Fram has been officially endorsed by Greg Murphy (read news), there are no excuses not to get involved.
The overall winner of the DYO class will be up for a Mag and Turbo wheel and tyre package worth $2000.
The track will open from 10am. Gate admission will be $15 per person (with under 12s free) and to race it will only set you back $30 for a full days racing.
