About this race event

More fun than half an aardvark, our annual 3-day, 24 Hour endurance event is cemented in the New Zealand Motorsport Calendar! Themed teams of 5 (or more) drivers plus crew, attempt to coax their clunkers across the finish line after a weekend of hilarity and MAY-hem. Open to all NaZCAR classes (Lemons and Limes).
