2014 D1NZ Round 1 at Manfeild Raceway [RECAP]

CsGarage.D1NZ

Shortly after wrapping up the 2014 drifting season here in New Zealand we were back at it again for 2015! The Demon Energy D1NZ series stopped by at Manfeild Raceway in the lower North Island for Round 1 of competition. With high speed entries, smooth flowing corners and large runoffs this would be a chance to really test the cars – many of which receiving new setups during the off-season.

FangaDan
One of those would be Fanga Dan Woolhouse in his Century Batteries Holden Commodore. The new VE chassis has been in the works for a while now – built as a serious championship contender to the tune of well over 600hp. However later in the day a broken axle meant the new car would not go on and instead Fanga would borrow Ben Jenkins’ Pro-Am S13, driving well but without the necessary pace for a round win.
C33Laurel.Drifting
Similarly the current D1 champion Gaz Whiter was not driving his usual high power LS7 Silvia. Shipping that car to Australia for World Time Attack meant Whiter would borrow an RB powered C33 Laurel last used in competition back in 2007. Even with Whiter’s experience and driving ability the team knew it would be a challenge come battle time, and unfortunately electrical problems took him out of the game early.

Pro 2 Qualifying at the House of Drift went smoothly, and the championship race got a little tighter due to the results.
