A shout out to FPS dragster driver Craig Griffith
Congratulations to hydraulic and hose technician Craig Griffith, who took out first place in the FPS dragster at the Spring Nationals in Auckland in November, pulling off a personal best of 6.85 seconds at 195mph.
Craig says: “It was awesome. The guy who came second clocked 7.5 seconds over the quarter mile so we were well out in front.”
Part of the IHRA (International Hot Rod Association) series, the meet backed up Craig’s sensational performance in Christchurch at Labour Weekend, winning second place in the first meet of the series.
With two meets to go, Craig now has his eye firmly on winning the New Zealand Drag Racing Championships.
“I’m gunning to take the title – I’ve always wanted to win it. Based on our performance so far, we’re in for a strong chance. A guy in Christchurch always wins it and we’ve beat him so far.”
The New Zealand Nationals will be held in Auckland in March. Watch this space!
