The big rigs are back at Pukekohe Park on 1 and 2 April and you’d be a fool to miss a great day or great weekend’s racing action at the Park
This is the final event in this season’s Speed Works Motorsport Championship, and concludes the championships of all of the classes in the event, so there will be plenty at stake.
The NZ Super Trucks head the entry as they once again do battle around the spectacular circuit. The trucks are in their element around this fast flowing track and the racing action at the front is breathtaking. These machines are several tonnes with several thousand horsepower, and are not for the faint hearted whether that’s the driver or the spectators! Each year they come to the track at this time for the final round of their New Zealand Championship season and they are sure to be a very big hit again this coming weekend.
There’s a mighty support cast for the big rigs at this, one of the circuit’s biggest domestic meetings of the season. The TRADEZONE GT1/GT2 field provides for top speeds, with some of the field lapping the circuit quicker than the Supercar boys. Right up there on pace too will be the Pirelli Porsche field, another New Zealand Championship class concluding its season this weekend.
Others who will crown their champions over the weekend are the TRADEZONE GT3/4, Motul Honda Cup, Kumho Tyres Pre-65, Pro 7 Mazda and BMW Open categories—which will provide not only great racing but also a huge variety of grids.
Completing the line-up are the enthralling Sssangyong Actyon Utes, which provide the closest racing in New Zealand and some of the very best action.
It’s a line up which will stock you up with motorsport adrenaline for the winner months ahead. If you would like to go along you can purchase tickets in advance from Ticketek with a discount (just search for Speed Works) or get them at the gate. Don’t forget, kids under 14 go free so one or both days will definitely be an entertaining and cost effective family day out.
