In light of the statements issued today by the New Zealand Government, Ministry of Health, and Motorsport New Zealand, we have no option but to cancel the Final Round of the Championship Series that was to be held at Masterton Motorplex this weekend.
This page was last updated 16 March 2020.
New Zealand’s priority is slowing the spread of COVID-19. Mass gatherings such as concerts, sporting events and the like pose a high risk for transmission of infectious diseases.
Helping people avoid close contact with others as much as possible, like you would with the seasonal flu, is an effective measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These measures are intended to help protect you, your family and all of New Zealand from COVID-19.
To slow the spread of COVID-19, gatherings of 500 people or more in close proximity will be cancelled. This includes festivals, fairs, sporting, religious and cultural events. This will be regularly reviewed.
The intent of the measures is to avoid non-essential gatherings which may facilitate the spread of COVID-19.

The Boards of IHRA NZ Inc and the New Zealand Drag Racing Association Inc have agreed to hold a joint National Drag Racing Series for the 2019/2020 season and for the 2020/2021 season.
The existing NZDRA National Series, and the existing IHRA NZ National Series will be replaced by the new joint series.
A subcommittee has met, and are working hard to align class rules and safety rules for the coming season which will culminate in the New Zealand Nationals being held at Meremere Dragway in March 2020 and the finals at Masterton Motorplex.
Both Boards are excited to co-host this National Series and see it as a major step forward for the sport of drag racing in New Zealand.
