Previously known as A Grade Stockcars, Superstocks are a premier class of New Zealand speedway (dirt track racing). Cars have strong roll cages designed to protect the drivers. Superstocks weigh 1400 to 1500 kg and are usually powered with modified V8 engines of up to 248 cubic inches. Contact between cars can be rugged and is intended as part of the class.

The Car[edit]

Cars are purpose built by numerous different builders throughout the country.

  • Rees Race Cars
  • Murray Gordge
  • Graeme Barr Motorsport
  • Podjurskey Tanks

Among others.

Cars come in all different shapes and designs, varying from the ever popular and successful Gordge chassis, through to the 'Tank" popularized by Dave Evans.
