Overview

  • Multiple classes/categories
  • Relay teams invited to compete

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!


Car requirements (check with us if unsure)

Every car must have the following (full Regulations and accredited Articles released soon)

  • Minimum 6-point full cage (AASA or MSNZ homologated)
  • Fit for purpose, one piece moulded race seat, securely mounted (dual sliding rails OK)
  • Minimum 5-point harnesses (in Cert/good condition)

Qualifying

Every car must participate in qualifying to set a lap time (specific to each venue/conditions) which must fall between the set ‘limits’. Any cars exceeding the fastest lap time, or failing to achieve the slowest time may not be eligible to compete. This series is an endurance and attrition event, so is about consistency over speed. Classes will be based on lap times/car preparation.
