Whats on in Taupo this month

 

Speed Works Motorsport NZ Championship: Denny Hulme Trophy - 2nd & 3rd Feb

International Racing Action Means Big Weekend of Motorsport In Taupo. 

As the international Castrol Toyota Racing Series reaches its penultimate round, the race will be on for a special trophy that celebrates New Zealand's only Formula One World Champion - Denny Hulme. 

His legacy is celebrated at this round of the international Toyota Racing Series every year when the F1 drivers of the future - all with one eye on the ultimate prize of an F1 drive and the F1 world title - duke it out to get their name on the Denny Hulme Trophy. Its been all about Marcus Armstrong and Liam Lawson so far, and the the Kiwi flyers will do battle again around this track with two qualifying sessions and two races on Saturday and qualifying and two races on Sunday - the busiest ever Castrol Toyota Racing series weekend programme and one which could change the course of the championship with Taupo being the penultimate round. 

The TRS cars are the fastest to race every year on the Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park, and every year they pack the weekend with great action and racing. This time around it will be no different with the best of the best from junior single seater formulae all over the world in action trying to make a name for themselves. 

Technically demanding and hard on tyres, the Taupo track brings out the best in the team engineers and the drivers and it’s the same with the other classes that will race at the venue over this great weekend of motorsport. 

There’s never a dull moment in the Ssangyong Actyon Ute series and the class is bag with its big fields and mouth-watering four-a-breast racing. There’s nothing to choose between the Utes or the drivers in this big and colourful field and now in its fifth season, the racing remains as good as it ever was. 

BMW racing returns to the Speed Works Motorsport NZ Championship this weekend with all three of the marque’s popular racing categories in action this weekend at the Denny Hulme Trophy meeting. The E30 class has produced some great young talent in recent seasons and this is another racing category with big fields and great racing.

One step up is the 2.0Litre category which has some very interesting home tuned machines and a range of the German brand’s all-time great two litre models. At the top of the BMW tree is the Open category and here you will find machinery from global GT and touring car racing mixing it with some of the fastest home tuned specials around. 

The Motul Honda Cup adds yet more international flavour with the screaming high revving VTEC brigade putting their very quick home-built and home tuned Civics and Integras to the test around a circuit they know well. You’ll be surprised by the lap times and the quality of the cars, so do take some time to have a look around the paddock if you like your JDM-style racers. 

The local KSports and SS2000 combined field is a local favourite and adds yet another decent field of cars to the Taupo weekend.

New Zealand is one of the most picturesque and photogenic places on earth. A small island nation of less than 4.5 million people. New Zealand is made up of two major land masses, the North Island and the South Island. These islands are divided by a 22km stretch of sea called the Cook Strait, (named after Captain James Cook, the english explorer that discovered New Zealand in 1769.

New Zealand is located in the south west pacific ocean, aproximately 1,500kms southeast of Australia.Due to its relitive remoteness and being water locked, New Zealand is one of the last places on earth to be disovered and settlled.

This country is made up of some of the worlds most spectacular landscapes, from vast mountain ranges to sweeping coastlines, making the perfect background for high budget movies such as Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit by Peter Jackson. New Zealand is a natural playground for thrill seekers and adventurers and those who simply just want to visit for the culture and landscapes.
