NZDRA Mission Statement

NZDRA's mission is to exceed the expectations of its members, competitors, volunteers, member tracks and corporate partners while developing a safe, sustainable and entertaining sport.

NZDRA will provide the governance and services to grow and develop the sport of Drag Racing into New Zealands number one motorsport entertainment.

This mission should ensure that NZDRA Drag Racing becomes a respected organisation in New Zealand while enhancing the involvement of all participants.



The sport of Drag Racing, i.e. the pairing of two vehicles against one another in a race from a standstill start through a straightway course, in New Zealand is under the control of The New Zealand Drag Racing Association Incorporated (NZDRA). This Association was established in November 1993, to be the controlling authority for Drag Racing in New Zealand. The purpose of NZDRA is to be "an organization to represent, control and coordinate the sport of Drag Racing in New Zealand". This delegation authority was first granted by Motorsport New Zealand in 1993 with approval of the FIA. The NZDRA constitution can be found on the NZ web site & the Incorporated society web site.

NZDRA is a member of the FIA Drag Racing Commission, the SFI Foundation (US) and alliances with NHRA and ANDRA.

News Release
Online Licencing

The uptake of licencing online is exceeding our expectations. Although there have been a few minor issues we are pleased that, overall this has been a positive step.

National Series

The National Series Calendar which has been released incorporates rounds to be held at Meremere and Ruapuna. A number of Racers have enquired about how the points will be allocated and after completing a group survey among our members, it has been decided to allocate points as per the rule book.

Clash of Dates: Taupo / Masterton

Firstly, the Board wish to be clear that having two events on the same date is not ideal. That said, NZDRA does NOT select or set event dates. We endeavour to build a National Points Series within the dates supplied by the Promoters.

The 3rd January 2015 date was booked in advance at Taupo in October 2013 albeit there was no confirmed Promoter. MMP was informed of the booking and declared openly that they would run on that date regardless. Both the MMP and Taupo Promoters have been informed and the NZDRA National Points round at Taupo has been shifted to the December 28th meeting to enable Racers to choose their meeting fairly.

Going forward, ALL Track Promoters must meet and ratify the following seasons dates at a Track Committee Meeting no later than 30th May of the preceding season. This committee meeting is only facilitated NOT ruled on by NZDRA.

NZDRA Administration

The Board wish to thank you all for your help and assistance in understanding that the Association now operates with a part time Administrator (Monique Duckett) backed up by the Directors each carrying greater responsibility. If there is something we have missed or misunderstood, please be considerate and contact us in the appropriate manner to enable the correct outcome for all.


The current rulebook is available for you on our website under the Technical tab.  We encourage all members to check it out and in particular, any new rules that may apply to your class.
