Hampton Downs represents the newest and perhaps the most exciting circuit in NZ, the race will run from 9am to 9pm making an exciting night race experience for competitors and spectators alike.
Entry, classes and regulations will be out in the next week, but book this date in your calendar now!
Grids will be limited to 54 vehicles with 12hour entries taking precedence and then on a first come first served basis. The race will have 4 races in one with an option of a 1hour / 4hour / 6hour and of course the 12hour!
Endurance racing and in particular 12 hours are now regarded as being Premier Events. The Bathurst 12 hour is a great example, gaining a huge following and starting to rival the “Great Race” as more and more international drivers and their exotic cars take to the grid. These same competitors are actively seeking new venues and as a MotorSport NZ Sanctioned event the Hampton Downs 12 Hour Endurance Race ticks all the boxes.
