The dates are now set in the Motorsport NZ calendar from 23rd November- 1st December 2018, this has recently changed due to a clash with WRC Australia. We will have a test day on Friday 23rd November for anyone needing last minute system or car checks. This is primarily provided for International Participants wanting to check everything is working after their cars have arrived in New Zealand. We suggest you book your travel arrangement to arrive in New Zealand by at least Wednesday 21st to acclimatize. Auckland is the best International Airport to arrive and depart from unless you are planning to take an extended holiday and enjoy some more of picturesque New Zealand.
The event will start from Hamilton with documentation, vehicle scrutineering, drivers briefing and a ceremonial start on Friday. The event will start from Hamilton on Saturday morning then head south in an anticlockwise direction around the central North Island of New Zealand over the next eight days finishing on Saturday 24th November 2018. Prize Giving and dinner will be on Saturday evening. This will allow Sunday as a relocation day or take time to enjoy some of the local attractions the region has to offer. The draft route and speed schedule will be updated in early January 2018.
We suggest you plan to use Auckland as the port for shipping in and out of the country and we recommend that you contact Phil Gibbs at GT Logistic HERE for assistance.
More information will be posted as it comes to hand.
