The Board of NZDRA feel that we need to respond to Meremere Dragway’s press release of last week.
When Meremere Dragway Board (MDI) advised NZDRA in April 2015 of their decision not to reunite with NZDRA they advised that both parties should refrain from participating in a public war of words and NZDRA have respected their choice to remain with IHRA. Our members have since voted at the AGM not to participate in a joint points series with MDI.
Whilst there are always two sides to a story, NZDRA wish to advise our members that we did our upmost to comply with all of MDI’s requests and felt that we had complied in all respects. The NZDRA attempted to reunify the sport as per the Heads of Agreement signed between both parties with the backing of Motorsport NZ, in every aspect and was extremely disappointed this did not occur.
NZDRA Board wish to advise you, our members, that we are moving on and looking to a bright future and whilst we are focussed on our core business, we are also focussed on building our National Series to be the most exciting race series on the motorsports calendar.
