Six race meetings are scheduled with highlights including the opening meeting of the season which will feature the exotic race machinery of the South Island Endurance Series, the annual Speedworks Events MSNZ Premier Championship meeting in January, the Evolution Motorsport Classic SpeedFest in February and the NZ Super Truck Meeting in March.
