The World is here!

Mystery Creek Events Centre is a thriving event city once again this week. Thousands are already watching the worlds best as they race around the Shakedown stage, giving them a taste of what’s to come in Propecia Rally New Zealand this weekend.

The two Super Special Stages are on Friday and Saturday night. The track has been purpose built for spectator viewing including a specially built jump, splash and the Propecia hairpin. Corporate Villages and grandstands have been positioned in the best viewing areas around the course.

Mystery Creek Events Centre is the ideal venue for Propecia Rally NZ according to Paul Mallard, General Manager, Rally NZ,

“An abundance of indoor and outdoor space, extensive infrastructure and multi functional facilities has meant that Rally NZ can host many aspects of the event at one venue,” he said.

Rally Controls, the service park, secretariat, media centre and many other functions are all based at Mystery Creek, as well as the Shakedown and the two Super Special Stages.

While on site, visitors can view not only the Super Special Stage, but also view the cars in service and enjoy the extensive range of entertainment such as Mardi Gras entertainers, carnival rides, bands, pyrotechnics, merchandise and market stalls, burnouts, Miss Rally NZ and range of food and beverage including bar and restaurant facilities.

Tickets are available from the gate or at the Ceremonial Start 7pm tonight on Hood St, Hamilton City. More information including a timetable and bus transport is available on
