Taupo Motorsport Park hosts new-look New Zealand Road Relay Championships

With planned short, medium, and long laps for the different championship grades, the atmosphere will be pumping as DJ’s, comperes and commentators provide the backdrop to one of the marquee days on the New Zealand athletics calendar.

Teams will be given an allocated space in one of the 32 pitlane garages or a covered space in the pitlane – also known as the party lane – situated close to the start-finish area and transition zone.

The fully contained venue will offer parking, an extensive warm up area and even the opportunity for social and team building activities with access to the go karting track one of the many on-site entertainment options as well as food and beverage options. The post-race award ceremonies will also take place at Taupo Motorsport Park.

A number of new initiatives are also planned for the event including the use of an electronic leaderboard allowing athletes and spectators clear updates of the state of play as teams battle it out for team honours.

The first race at the 2024 New Zealand Road Relay Championships is expected to start at around 9am on Saturday 28 September.
