While most people come over here for the adventurous outdoor lifestyle such as bungee jumping and horrendously long walks us hardly souls come for the racing. The reason for the timing of this trip was to pull in the two biggest meetings for Superstox. This w/e 4/5 Feb it was the NZ Championships, which can be compared in importance to the BrISCA F1 World Final. Next weekend its the Team Championships at Palmerston North which are comparable to nothing else in the universe let alone this planet!

The first day of the two day meeting at Waikaraka Park in Auckland had two elements. The first was an off-track scrutineering session at a nearby racecourse. This ran from about 1000 to 1400 and was excellent to see the cars at close quarters as well as make some new friends as well as catch up with some familiar ones.

The evening meeting was for qualifying with three groups of around twenty cars each racing over three heats with the top eight qualifying for champonship the next day. This was my first experience of the Superstox and I'm hooked. Its the hardest racing I have ever experienced bar none!
