The Demon Energy D1NZ National Drifting Championship will make New Zealand motor racing history for the second time this season, as the series undertakes another stadium based event in the space of three months.
Tauranga’s ASB Baypark main stadium is set to be transformed into a drift circuit over February 24-25; in similar fashion to Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium in December of 2016.
It will be the first time a North Island stadium houses drifting, and only the second time in Southern Hemisphere history, following the Dunedin drift event.
The 17,000-plus capacity multi-purpose facility is usually home to speedway, rugby, sprint boats, and concerts. However, 5000 square metres of concrete will be laid atop the grass infield to form a drift circuit.
An action packed evening filled with pyrotechnics, fireworks, and high speed close proximity drifting is set to entertain fans in a spectacular night show.
EVENT DATES AND DETAILS:
Friday 24th February – 10.30am – 8.30pm
Saturday 25th February – 11.00am – 10.30pm
Main Saturday night show – 4:30pm onwards
All ticket information can be found via the “Get Ticket” tab above.
