Scott Dixon to headline spectacular

Legends of Speed event

New Zealand’s international motorsport champions from the past, present and future will be celebrated during a spectacular and historic gala event to be held on November 25th at the Vector Arena in Auckland. 

The “Legends of Speed – Presented by the Giltrap Group” event will be headlined by New Zealand’s most successful and recognised racing driver, four-time IndyCar champion and Indianapolis 500 race winner Scott Dixon. 

He will be joined by other Kiwi international motorsport stars including Hyundai World Rally Championship crew and Argentinian Rally winners Hayden Paddon and co-driver John Kennard, World Endurance Champion and factory Porsche driver Brendon Hartley and Le Mans 24 Hour winner and Porsche factory driver Earl Bamber.

New Zealand's V8 Supercar presence will be well represented by current stars Scott McLaughlin, Fabian Coulthard and Shane van Gisbergen. Four time Bathurst winner Greg Murphy will also attend as one of the country’s greatest exports to the Australian series.

Other drivers will include GT and Porsche racing icon Craig Baird, Asia Porsche Carrera Cup champion Chris van der Drift and Japanese Lexus Super GT driver and current Japanese Formula 3 champion Nick Cassidy.

The black tie event – which has already secured a Principal Partner in the form of the Giltrap Group - will celebrate New Zealand’s proud international motorsport history and will provide an opportunity for corporate New Zealand and motorsport luminaries to meet at a unique event. 

Proceeds raised from the event will be donated to assist with funding of the New Zealand Elite Motorsport Academy and to support the current Bring Back WRC New Zealand campaign.

“New Zealand Motorsport’s international heritage stretches back to a golden era of famous Kiwis who were pioneers and played their part in the sport as it developed into the global sport today. Bruce McLaren, Denny Hulme, Chris Amon, Howden Ganley and Mike Thackwell all reached the pinnacle of the sport by competing in Formula One and they helped to lay the foundations for future generations who aspire to the highest levels,” explained event organiser Peter Johnston.

“For the size of our population New Zealand is extremely well represented in global motorsport by an outstanding group of talented young drivers and also engineers who all strive to make a success of their careers and leave their mark in motorsport history.

“The Giltrap Group ‘Legends of Speed’ event will bring most of these drivers home for a spectacular one-off night of celebration.  There has never been a time that so many of the current stars have had an opportunity to be together for an event like this.

“We’ll honour the past and present, we will tell the stories and reflect on some of their greatest moments through live interviews and exciting video production. We can promise all who attend will enjoy a unique and entertaining evening,” concluded Johnston.

New Zealand’s star drivers will be joined on the night by a display of some of the world’s most rare and exclusive supercars from private New Zealand collections, many of them are rarely seen in New Zealand and they will complement the evening along with a motorsport memorabilia auction which will feature racing treasures and exciting one-off experiences.

Ticket details and more information is available at the Legends of Motorsport website,

Manfeild 23rd July 2016 

The final round of the 2016 Mahindra North Island Endurance series is upon us already, but what better place to wrap up a great series than the popular Manfeild Autocourse – a circuit which has seen some of the country’s finest racing over the many years of its existence.
It has unquestionably been a very interesting endurance racing season on the North Island. Grids have been fantastic and the diversity of machinery is better than ever – it’s the weather that hasn’t come to the party this year!
Round one at the Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park, Taupo, was a frustration for everyone with thick fog rendering most of the three hour race an procession behind the safety car 
Rain was the order of the day at round two at Hampton Downs International Motorsport Park, with both the one hour race and the three hour race run in very challenging conditions. 
So, who will take out the title this weekend.  Can reigning champ John McIntyre and his co driver for this series Simon Gilbertson retain the title for Inky Tullock Motorsport in the mighty ‘Sledgehammer’ Reiter Camaro, will Reid and co-driver Neil Foster steal it for International Motorsport? Or could it go elsewhere? It will all be decided this weekend at Manfeild – enjoy the show.

To enjoy the show please enter on the motorsport entry site. So many of you left till the last minute please make it easier for my team by entering now as I am away for the next 2 weeks. . 


Please let us know your plans for the awards dinner on Saturday night. Currently I have 20 people coming to the awards night? This does not help catering or travel. I am away now for 2 weeks leaving these booking details with my team at work, they do not race cars or even involved with NIERDC so please help me out and reply over the weekend so we can provide an event that is amazing. Thank you to Verryt's, Farmers, McBeath and Dovey, you will all enjoy the dinner.

Please, complete the survey below so we can make final bookings on Monday for dinners and travel.

Awards dinner and travel questionnaire 


These are being handled by David as he is here and managing this while I am away so any queries please email David directly 
Manfeild pits are going to be tight. If you need a garage and are in the three hour, be quick or you will miss out. You have to have something in pit lane for the three hour race. 

Cheers Karen 

To all Teams: 

Please be aware of the  MANZ Code of Practice Fuel. Here is a link so you can ensure you are aware of your obligations with fuel handling

This will be monitored during the meeting and mentioned at drivers briefings
