FRESHLY WHIPPED – 4 & Rotary Nationals – Drag Racing

So onto the Drag Racing section we go. With Day 1 over and all of the cars on their way back home, the Drag Racing started up on the Sunday.  With the 4 Australian dragsters over, the day was hyped up to be huge. Sadly with the weather being off and on this put a hold to some of the action.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis classic RX7 looked rather classy waiting to slaughter the rear tyres.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis little DX Corolla had a 12A dropped into it and seemed to prefer doing skids than actually racing, with the rear guards getting blacker and blacker by the end of the day.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe homie’ Cam Vernon was getting amped up to get out on the track with his R32 all set up to kill the 1/4 mile track.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIf you see  a CBR sticker, you know sh_t’s about to go down.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nPutting on an impressive burnout, Cam seemed to be going fine to start with. Sadly with his launch control having a fit he ended up with a bad start.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAs you may have noticed, we have a huge following for Rotary cars in NZ and this event was no different. Wagon’s such as this 808 wagon are always tidy and produce good power from their rotary engines.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAlthough a drag day primarily for cars, bike’s were also out to compete with many putting down scary fast times.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nI keep seeing this particular Altezza rolling around Pukekohe all the time. Love the wheels, love the height, just a damn good example in general.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nClean Integra Type R’s never fail to impress.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAfter getting a tonne of attention around the world from Taryn’s Hellaflush feature, this car seems to be showing up quite often. Love the Equips.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMazda B8′s. Hah.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe High Octane  Mazda R100 from Australia managed a 7.8 pass down the straight – not bad for a little Mazda..\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Australian Eclipse was looking mighty smart after it’s crash a few days prior. Thanks to the work of Grant at GT Refinishers, the car is back up and looking great.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMore Australian goodness..\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nV8 Twin Turbo – They do it big in Australia from the looks of it.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAnd last but not least some drift cars gave it hell out on the strip with Brad Lauder’s S14 lighting up the tyres with ease.\r\n\r\nCheck out 4&Rotary’s website for more info.\r\n\r\n-Chris
