Variety is the spice of life and there is plenty of variety at this weekend’s Speedworks Events Motorsport New Zealand Premier Championship Series racing at Teretonga Park.

D1NZ bring the Valvoline D1NZ Drifting Championship to Teretonga Park for the first time ever which means some of the country’s top exponents of the sport will come south to provide a show in some brutally powerful machinery. If you have never seen drifting this is your chance to see the sport at its best.

Drivers from sixteen different country’s as diverse as New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, France, Brazil, Denmark, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Sweden, USA, Angola, Belgium, Japan, Israel, Puerto Rico and Germany will line up in the Castrol Toyota Racing Series with the calibre of the entry this season suggesting that once again Southlanders could well be seeing a Formula 1 star of the future or two. Defending champion, kiwi Liam Lawson, leads the series as it comes to Teretonga Park from Brazilian Igor Fraga and his fellow Red Bull Junior team member Yuki Tsunoda of Japan.

Some of the nation’s best up and coming drivers will be seen in the Best Bars Toyota 86 Championship, the NZ Formula Ford Championship and the South Island F1600 Championship while the South Island Porsche Series should see a wide variety of Porsche race cars on the grid. The Speedworks Rush Hour race should also see a varied grid.
