A list for Fridays test and tune, and a separate list for Saturday racing which requires the $15 pre-payment or $10 for DM's you must be on the list to race on the Saturday and you pay your $60 at the gate upon entry.
If you’re not on the list and want to race Saturday you cannot compete in the DYO racing unless you have a reasonable reason why you couldn't prepay the $15.

We love to see 1st time racers you don’t need a race car to have some fun we get cars that run anything from 8 sec to 18 sec so don’t be shy.

List your name if you want to join in and have some fun, a mod or admin will add you to the list.

Come on let’s get the 30 cars for the Friday night, I told HPR we would have 30 cars there, nice cool weather in June we should see plenty of PB’s.
We need good support for this event on both days if we are to continue this as 2 day yearly event..

$15 deposit details for Saturday racing only.

We will post up departure times and meeting locations closer to the Drag Nats.

Would be great to have some more club members attend, its a great weekend, and if you don't wish to enter your car its an awesome social weekend as well.

Look forward to having some more club members attend
