The Meremere Dragway Night Speed Drag Wars Series is back for the 2018/2019 Drag Racing season and as always the first one promises to be big with our Guy Fawkes fire display and some tough racing with race entry cut off at 250 or 830pm (whichever comes first).
This is the first round of a new Night Speed Drag Wars series that has increased from six meetings in previous seasons to eight meetings this coming summer. The new format also sees three Saturday nights of racing introduced following a strong show of hands for Saturday meetings in an effort to avoid Auckland traffic.

Run what ya brung! Remember these events are for Street Legal vehicles only so your vehicle needs to be WOFd and REGO’d. You must have a helmet and a minimum Restricted License for a car driver and if you’re a biker, you can race on a Learner License as long as your bike is on the LAMS approved motorbike list (just like the road rules). Ensure your battery is securely fastened/tied down and if you have a rotary vehicle that you have a scatter blanket/shield. Lastly, in all classes except King of the Street, you can run D.O.T approved street legal drag tyres only but any other race slick is strictly prohibited.
King of the Street only class to run full slicks – click Drag Wars Rules to see updates in yellow.
