Known as the Motorplex, the 20-metre wide dragstrip has high standard safety barriers and seating for 1200 people
Known as the Motorplex, the Masterton dragstrip is located in the Wairarapa.
The track is a half mile, 20-metre wide drag strip with a concrete launch pad where it changes to tar seal. The strip is very flat, straight, and has excellent traction and and has a runoff (braking) area of another half mile, 10-metres wide.
There is seating for approximately 1200 people on one side of the track, as well as standing room for the remaining length of the track's barriers and on the other side of the track.
Another feature the high standard safety barriers which extend through the braking area, running 800 metres each side, which is double the usual safety barrier distance.
