How do I enter?  

Make contact with us through this website, we will forward your details to the series coordinators who will then provide you with a contract outlining the obligations of all parties. This contract is between you and the series and your series fee will be paid direct to the series, not the team. This makes for a safe transaction for you, the series then engages the services of Victory Motor Racing to look after you. 

 

Can I be assured of fair and even competition?

All the cars are owned by the series and prepared to a very high standard by them, not the individual teams. Although it can vary from year to year, Data from the fastest lap of every session is shared between teams. TRS management monitor the Data of every competitor closely to ensure parity of chassis and engine. Motorsport NZ officials carry-out post race technical checks on at least 4 cars after qualifying and each race. This is a drivers championship where a good working relationship between driver, engineer and the team will be rewarded with results.
