Super stock racing to us is door slammer racing. Impalas, Max Wedge Mopars, Thunderbolts, and all of the other cars that make up the class turn our crank. The racing is competitive, the cars are gorgeous, and the action goes from surgical precision and textbook perfection to wheels up, shifter-breaking fun. But New Zealanders have a different take on the term. There, Superstock racing….well, it makes us think of a lot of things. The guarded wheels make us think of go-karts, the dirt track makes us think of Modifieds, and the action makes us think of a bunch of unbalanced, angry, and potentially intoxicated demo derby drivers having a free-for-all on the track. As far as we can tell, the PIT maneuver isn’t a suggestion, it is a mandatory maneuver! At any dirt track race you can expect to see a little bumping, but these guys are going for anger management therapy-levels of attack. It almost makes me think of a roller derby.
For any of our Kiwi readers…can you explain to us what the living hell is actually going on here? Because this is awesome!
