Video: Super Truck Racing League of New Zealand


New Zealand Super TrucksAussies and Kiwis do things a little bit differently from the rest of us, and the Super Truck Racing League is a great example of this.

Super Truck Racing has been an odd attraction for Australian and New Zealand racing fans at Grand Prix tracks going on 30 years now. The sport pits customized semi trucks built for speed against competitors on twisting and turning tracks that would put sweat on your face if you were in the passenger seat.

Many of the trucks are built out with nearly 2000 horsepower coupled to various performance enhancers like turbos and superchargers. The result is a truck that can reach speeds of 100 mph in just a few seconds flat, and take turns that rate around 5 Gs if necessary.
