Masterton Motorplex held their first test and tune of the season, on December 6 and 7, and the turnout was huge. Making an appearance at the event were a handful of new cars, some freshly imported and others locally built, as well as some old favourites back with a few tweaks.
While the racing was great to watch, it was also great to see the Masterton Motorplex crew making even more improvements to the already impressive venue, all of which will hopefully be completed before the nostalgia meeting in early January, 2015.
The event is not really about winning points, but more about sorting out tune-ups and the likes, but we do have a summary of the results from the event:
