2020/21 National Drag Racing Series. Round 5

Wellington Invasion

Meremere Dragway, 9 January, 2021. | Points after Round 5

The Wellington Invasion meeting at Meremere was abandoned after numerous incidents over the weekend. The most serious was Dave Gould's crash on Saturday. His car snapped sideways about 1/3rd track and then continued along the wall at full revs, eventually coming to a halt in the sand trap. That caused the Saturday, which was supposed to be a one day event, to be abandoned. Numerous oildowns on Sunday dragged the meeting out further. The final straw came after the track could not be recovered satisfactorily from yet another oildown. Points have been allocated up to when the meeting was abandoned.
