About Us

Welcome to the
North Island Endurance Racing Drivers Club.

Welcome to the North Island Endurance Racing Drivers Club. 

Endurance racing is one of the fastest growing racing disciplines in New Zealand. We have been lucky enough to see tremendous growth of our series and club to the extent that we are now one of the larger car clubs in New Zealand.

NIERDC was formed in 2013 to bring back endurance driving to the North Island. The original focus of the event was to be based on driver’s needs and wants, and to that end, a survey was sent out to drivers to gauge their interest and a relationship formed with the very successful South Island Series.

Today we have seen the success of the series grow from 22 cars in a combined One & Three hour race to boast continuously growing grids with over 100 cars registered in the club.

Club membership is mandatory for all drivers who enter the series. A club committee of Mark Petch, Steve Brooks, Nick Chester, Greg Sandilands, Luke Rollo, Bill Riding and James Marshall work with ROCs to ensure that the original intent to be driver focused series, is continued.

The relationship with the South Island club has allowed for an aligned approach to endurance racing and therefore the development of a national title; the New Zealand Endurance Championship.

The club’s focus is to ensure that the regulations are driver focused, allows driver input through surveys, aligns with the South Island Endurance Series , engages sponsors to add value to the driver experience, and creates an all around enjoyable experience for all involved.


We try to provide as much benefit as we can to our sponsors via emailed newsletters, branded track displays and Facebook and website profiles. If you would like to offer prizes or make a monetary contribution please contact Mark Petch on mark@velocitynews.co.nz


We always love to hear from anyone either driver, team member or partner who would like to help out at a meetings. If interested, please contact us via the contact tab above.
