Welcome to the History of Pegasus Bay Drag Racing
This page is still being made so although most items should be working please be patient as it develops and as people add bits to it, and on that note if you can add some comments and maybe a storyline to this part of the website then you are welcome to contact the webmaster.

Thankyou to the Tolhurst family who have spent a considerable amount of time scanning old photos to turn them into digital format, I then split them, resized them and enhanced them for the website. Nick Hay before his sudden departure also donated some photos from his vast collection which I scanned and sized for these pages.

Here is pictorial history of Pegasus Bay Drag Racing Club which resides at the Ruapuna Park motor racing circuit. From very early to today I will attempt to capture moments in time. If you wish contribute to the overall history in either editorial or pictorial then please contact myself or the club.

I myself am only a recent participant at the club and have been a regular since around 2004 and previous to that have an extremely fond memory of coming over from Westport to watch the LA Hooker and the Pheonix do battle in the late 70's. I was wowed by others including the wheel lifting antics of a certain T-Bucket by the name of Devil Woman. Can any of you add any stories to this section as I would like to add these in an un edited form so if you are sending them in please make sure they are fit for the general public :)

These pages are a tribute to everyone who has ever been involved with this strip, this includes everything from officials, helpers, pit crew, spectators, cars, bikes, trucks, jetcars and comp cars.
