NaZCAR Pro National Endurance Championship is a Sanctioned event targeted at mid-level, mid-priced, mid-performance cars, with teams/drivers competing for NZ Championship Status through three (3) points-accumulated 3-hour and 6-hour endurance rounds (one-day events). Various categories and classes allow all teams to be competitive and utilise team strategies in order to complete the most laps within the set endurance time-frame.


Eligibility

Any "mid-level/speed" car currently competing in current series, such as: 2K Cup, Honda Cup, SsangYong racing series, BMW Race series, NaZCAR 24, Mazda Racing series or any car which meets the requirements and lap qualifying times of the NaZCAR Pro Championship rules. Various classes, based on qualifying times and car preparation, will be allocated; with points earned for each class respectively and winners in each class crowned. No Supercars or heavily modified screamers!
