New Zealand Endurance Championship

  • This event has passed.

November 6, 2020 @ 8:30 am - November 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Highlands is pleased to welcome back the New Zealand Endurance Championship Final to Central Otago for the second time!

The format for the NZEC event will be to invite the top 20 cars from the North Island series plus the top 20 cars from the South Island series to a one off, winner takes all, NZEC event. This will ensure that spectators and fans will see all the very best Endurance cars in New Zealand go head to head.

With NIERDC and SIERDC working together with a common set of rules has really benefited both series, with many new and exciting cars becoming involved in the series, and many of these only come out for the two respective Series. “The Series is all about the drivers” said NIERDC President Kel McBeath. “We aim to keep the politics low & the fun high and this has resulted in bumper fields of happy teams, drivers and organisers”

Any potential competitors, crews and supporters are welcome to be added to the clubs e-mailing list by simply sending an e-mail to the above addresses; or or by following the Series’ via their respective Facebook pages.

More information to follow soon!
