The final weekend of February welcomed Round 4 of D1NZ, the Southern Hemisphere’s premier drift championship. Daniel Woolhouse came into the weekend with a tight lead in the championhship over Cole Armstrong but series favourite Nico Reid enters with the advantage of having won the last round at Taopo. With cars pushing 1000bhp it is an unmissable demonstration of cars on the edge as they tackle the hardest corners Hamptons has to over.
Needless to say the action was spectacular as D1NZ put on a great event with a huge turnout of fans to support the drivers from all over the country. After nearly two full days of drifting Nico Reid was the winner, claiming his third straight round win in the championship. It wasn’t easy for him, with two rear hub failures on the Sunday which could have ended their weekend. Templeman was his opponent in the final and just like most of the duels throughout the day a one-more-time repeat was needed to separate the two men. Despite losing out in the final, Templeman left Hampton Downs as the series leader with only two rounds remaining.
