Circuit Chris Amon Manfeild once again plays host to the country's top circuit racing categories when the Speed Works Motorsport NZ Championship heads to the iconic Feilding track for the weekend of February 12th-14th.
The young guns of the Castrol Toyota Racing Series top the bill as the up and coming single seater racing talent of New Zealand makes the most of the opportunity to shine on the domestic and world stage in these state of the art, fast Formula Three type machines. It's New Zealand's premier single seater championship and the list of former winners reads like a who's who of Kiwi motorsport history.
Backing them up in style are the NAPA Central Muscle Cars. Making their second visit to the Manfeild track in their 2020-2021 season, this is the best historic muscle car field in the world, bar none. The cars are prepared to the highest standards and are mega powerful and super-fast. A few seasons ago, it was a talking point if a car had more than 500 horsepower. Now most of the top guns in this amazing field of iconic racers have over 700 horsepower available when they hot the go pedal!
TradeZone GTRNZ brings its two fields of cars to Manfeild. The GT1/2 field is one of the fastest and most spectacular in New Zealand and the GT3/4 field not far behind! The classes are separated by lap times and it makes each grid a fascinating mix that includes everything from US closed prototypes to home built and highly modified rotary, turbocharged and normally aspirated machinery. Not to be missed!
BNT V8s are also a big name on the weekend card, with their new exciting format catching the eye as much as some of the awesome cars on display.
The Best Bars Toyota 86 Championship provides breathtaking action that's nose to tail from start to finish and this season there are some more experienced names and established winners in the field making victories tougher to come by but even sweeter when they do show up!
Porsches, the packed grid of the NEXEN Tyre Mazda Racing Series and the oldest surviving motorsport class in New Zealand - and arguably the one with the finest racing - the Hi-Q Components Formula First Championship, completing an awesome line up.
And remember, it's a great family day or weekend of entertainment when kids 14 and under go free when accompanied by a paying adult.
