Rally Carnival Coming To Mystery Creek

Rally Carnival Coming To Mystery Creek

Propecia Rally New Zealand and Mystery Creek Events Centre have confirmed a partnership agreement for Mystery Creek Events Centre to be Rally Headquarters for New Zealand’s round of the FIA World Rally Championship in November this year.

Mystery Creek Events Centre has contributed integral support in order to secure the event for the Hamilton region.

“We are very pleased that we are able to work with Mystery Creek Events Centre to move the event to the next level. Mystery Creek Events Centre has a great entertainment programme for the event with the centerpiece being the special stage run around the grounds twice during the event. This will be the first time that New Zealand and international rally fans will be able to experience a one stop rally experience in this country.” Says Paul Mallard, general manager, Rally of NZ

“This is another important event for the community’s benefit” says Development and Marketing Manager Nicola Greenwell. “As the most televised sport in the world, this event will bring Hamilton to the homes of millions worldwide.”

Two special stages and the indoor service park will be held at Mystery Creek Events Centre. The special stages will take place over a 3.1km course including water splash and jump that has been purpose-built to provide spectators with their best-ever view of world-class competitors in full flight.

Spectators will also enjoy improved facilities at the completely under cover service park, including grandstands that will provide a birds-eye view of frantic rebuilds and last minute performance adjustments.

The action will continue with a carnival atmosphere and entertainment planned for before and after the stages. Bands, burnouts, fireworks, rides and stalls will thrill crowds and give the event wider appeal than ever before with a range of options available for family, friends and corporate groups.

The Rally of New Zealand will drive into Mystery Creek Events Centre 17 – 19 November 2006.
