You heard right. NaZCAR is launching a NEW FORMAT of endurance racing! Time to dust off the old Race suit and race-car...
Multiple race durations and various speed classes - with no silly themes or penalties. It all adds up to one thing: LOTS of seat-time, oodles of action and boot-loads of FUN...

About this race event

We start the day with a BANG!
A 40-lap Endurance race appropriately named the "Fire-Cracker 40". First across the line after 40 laps, with a maximum lap time of (nothing faster than) a 1:13 around Hampton Downs National Circuit.
Next, we serve up a 4-hour and an 8-hour Enduro (run concurrently) for all classes of cars, with 2 classes (breakouts of 1:15 and 1:20) on HD National Circuit.
Just for fun, we'll slip in a cheeky 1-hour race during the second half of the day (once the 4-hour Enduro has concluded).
Aimed at the more serious Endurance racers, the new MEGA events will become a regular feature of the NaZCAR calendar.
** Perfect for Production Race Series cars, NZ V8 Utes, Muscle Cars, BMW series, Mazda series, OK Cup, SsangYong series, GTRNZ, Honda Cup, Rotary Racing Enthusiasts, Porsches, Daihatsu Challenge... in fact ANY category or make of car that qualifies for the lap times for each event.
U bring it, you race it!
