New NIERDC Endurance Dates Announced

“With Covid lock-downs rearing their head again and forcing the postponement of the Summer Series Championship at Hampton Downs this weekend, the ramification of the delay to the Speedworks Championship summer series will have negative number on a number of entries already received for both the 1 and our new 2 hour event” said David Dovey, President of the NIERDC organising club.

"Looking at the impact on entries for our first event, our management committee have decided the safest course of action is to shift round one, back into early May and begin our series at Pukekohe on the 8-9th may, said Dovey. Our new 2 hour race format has been extremely well supported and we want to ensure that all those competitors that have already entered or indicated that they will enter the 2 hour race, have the best opportunity to do so”.

Dovey said, “Competitor interest in the North Island Endurance Series is running at an all time high and we are expecting upward of 70 plus car across both the 1, 2, and 3 hour races with some exciting new entries already received”.
