Super Weekend of Motorsport featuring South Island Porsche Series, NZ Super Trucks, OSCA, SS Cup, Continental Rennsport and more.
The 2019 Super weekend of Motorsport sees the return of the New Zealand Super Trucks to this event. Traditionally the Super Trucks have raced on the small tri-oval circuit. This year for the first time, the NZ Super Trucks will battle it out on the 2.45km Club Circuit. It’s going to be exciting seeing the trucks use the entire front straight and quite frankly EPIC watching them approach ICOM Corner at 160km/hr. If you’ve enjoyed truck racing at Ruapuna in the past, then this year’s event is not to be missed. If you’ve never been to a truck racing event, then make this the year to come out and watch them. It’s really hard to put into words just how awesome it is to watch trucks racing. These trucks are nothing like the ones we’ve all been stuck behind on the open road, these bad boys are so fast, that they’ve had to limit them to 160km/hr.
Also featuring at the Super Weekend of Motorsport is the South Island Porsche Series. Quite possibly one of the best factory race cars ever built, Porsche offers the owners of these cars an incredibly reliable package to go racing. Expect to see some really close racing throughout this class.
This will be one of our biggest Super Weekends of Motorsport we’ve had, with ten classes racing. We literally don’t have enough time across the weekend to fit ten classes in, so will combine a few of the smaller classes. This makes for some entertaining racing, with races within races.
The ten classes we have racing at the Super Weekend of Motorsport are; NZ Super Trucks, SI Porsche Series, OSCA, SS Cup, 2K Cup SI, Continental Rennsport, SI RX7, Pre 65, NZ6 & Mini 7’s.
Tickets will be available at the gate: $30 weekend pass or $20 per day.
Children under 16 free.
