Sorry this update has been well over due. The club and team has grown so much since the Hori Dori event has begun and the D1 Season been well underway.
Since Posting about the Hori Dori #2 back in July last year the Zerofighter Club and committee have since put on 4 more of these events with our Driftmas special leaving the Meremere Drag strip and testing out the Hampton Skid Pan. Here’s a brief Rundown with some pictures from the Past Few Events.
Hori Dori #3 13/8/2011
Early morning starts, drivings warming into it along with their cars. and plenty of broken parts. Robert’s diff being one. but a quick repair down to a engineering shop welded back up and finsihed the day and also drove it home that evening.
Hori Dori #4 15/10/2011
This day was to be a bit of a mixed weather day with patchy rain. but the sun came out and things turned out to be a good day. Track 2 Street photography turned up with a bit of special entertainment competition ay the lunch break with setting up a clipping point on a wall on the wide left hand onto the straight. Here’s some footage from the day.
Hori Dori #5 DRIFTMAS 3/12/2011
This event Was put on for the Movember cause, where we supported prostate cancer. all the spectator entry donations were given to Nathan Steel for registering for the cause. a few other members supported the cause with sporting Mo’s just cause they can get away with it for the month. Here’s some footage from this event at the Hampton Skid Pan.
Hori Dori #6 19/2/2012
The latest event to date, we’re now getting a large following and with restricting numbers of public drivers to 25 the spots seem to fill up pretty fast and we have our regular competitors that keep coming back for more. This last event was a very hot day but people stuck it in for the whole day and the cars lasted also. Here’s some footage from the day, the regulars are progressing very well since they first started at the Hori Dori events. Don from Taranaki coming up and driving well and even playing around with a few experienced drivers.
We worked with Richard & Jono at Vortex Racewear to produce some pit shirts for the boys to wear at club or national events, or even just out and about. We all like what they came up with. Thanks Vortex.
Will give you a bit more of an update later on about Todd Curtis’ wagon and the damage and lack of a boot lid
