Hampton Downs to host national endurance title on International Circuit
The New Zealand Endurance Championship will be decided on the International Circuit at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park on November 20th and whatever your taste in racing cars, this event is an absolute must.
Three titles will be decided during a massive day of racing. The national One Hour title will be decided, along with the prestigious Three Hour title. And for the country's top club level racing drivers, there's a national Two Hour title also there for the taking. The international layout at the North Waikato track means up to 58 cars can run on the circuit at once, and with three titles up for grabs, the action is going to be non-stop.
With names like Jonny Reid, John McIntyre, Greg Murphy, Chris van der Drift and many more lined up to take part, the event has the names, but it's also got the cars. From iconic GT3 performers like Nissan GTRs, McLarens and Audi R8s through to radically re-engineered V8 and rotary powered machines, V8 Supercars, SuperTouers, Porsches and a variety of GT4 cars, the Three Hour title decider offers a mouth-watering menu of machines for the car enthusiast and the two in each car will push them to the very limit - and sometimes beyond.
It’s not often drivers get the chance to race on the International Circuit and this will be a popular and cool opportunity for them to stretch their legs on the longer 3.8 km circuit. The GT3 specification cars particularly will be superfast around the Hampton Downs track.
With practice and some qualifying on Friday to allow all the racing to take part on Saturday, the action will be starting early and that will make it a great day out for the family, car nut or die-hard motorsport enthusiast.
Like all of our events, kids 14 and under go free when accompanied by a paying adult. It doesn’t get better than these cars and these drivers in New Zealand right now either, so make a date with us on November 20th. get up close and personal to these great cars and drivers and we'll see you there!
