Stil Vodka NZ Drift Series - Taupo (Round 4)
Sorry, this event’s been and gone
|Sat 22 Sep ’07||
Where: Taupo Motorsport Park, Broadlands Rd, Taupo
Event listed by: zylex
The Stil Vodka NZ Drift Series hits Taupo for the first time on Saturday September 22nd. Its the fourth round of the series and "Fanga Dan" Woolhouse is leading the points as we go into the event.
Gates for spectators open at 9am and cars will be on track just after 9.30am. The Top 16 battles begin after lunch so if its cold or wet in the morning, you can still head to the Taupo Motorsport Park in the afternoon and witness the action. Rain or shine the Stil Vodka NZ Drift Series will go ahead.
Once again we’ll be bringing along the Stil Series Offical Radar Gun to check entry speeds at Taupo. The Stil Promo Girls will be wandering the venue taking your entries into the Warp Factor competition. Whoever gets closest to guessing the fastest speed into the first corner will win some cool stuff from Stil Vodka on the day. The Warp Factor winner’s name will be announced at prizegiving and you’ll have to be there to collect your prize – R18 of course.
Any drivers who have not received an entry form via e-mail please check your spam filter or get in touch with Michael White on firstname.lastname@example.org, or call him urgently on 09 360 1480 ext 703 as the pre-entries close this Friday (September 14th).
To wind out the day, after the Top 16 eliminations are completed, we’ll be running the Team Drift Challenge as well. All entries on the day will be eligible to enter in groups of 3-5 to compete for the Stil Vodka Teams Challenge. Rules are in the Sup Regs which are included with the entry forms. Team drift went down well at round 3 in Christchurch, and we can see it becoming a big part of the series. If you're a spectator at Taupo on September 22nd, make sure you stay around for team drift after prizegiving!
Finally, don’t forget all drivers and crews are invited to the Stil Vodka NZ Drift Series official after party. Just ask anybody who made the last after-parties in Palmerston North, Auckland and Christchurch, and you’ll soon know its worth the effort. The NZPC TV crew will be on hand to cover the day’s activities then they’ll be straight into the editing suite to rough a programme together for the big screens later that evening. Exclusive footage of the day’s drifting will go on screen soon after they arrive plus you'll get the chance to taste some of Stil's fine product as part of the celebrations.
To add to the attraction of the after party, Round 1 of the Mill Liquorsave Bikini Model Search, Powered by Demon Energy Drink will be held. The search is on for NZ's ultimate bikini model, and round one will kick off with series DJ Dan Forman, who has just returned from headlining the Digital Throwdown series in Australia. The venue for the official after party is just being confirmed, so we will announce it here and on the day at the track.
