Motor Cup - The Best of Both Single Seater Worlds.

Hampton Downs Motorsport Park – January 26-27.

This is as good as it gets for single-seater racing in New Zealand and this weekend at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park promises an absolute feast of great racing, great drivers and great cars – and the fastest race meeting of the year on the popular National Circuit.

The New Zealand Motor Cup is one of the country’s oldest and most important sporting trophies. It has names on it that motorsport events all over the world – including most of the Grand Prix events – would just love on their own silverware.

Bruce McLaren, Chris Amon, Jackie Stewart, Jack Brabham, John Surtees, Stirling Moss, Keke Rosberg and Kenny Smith are just some of the names adorning the trophy and it's a one the young guns want to win. It will be fiercely fought and will provide unmissable action.

And once again the fantastic Castrol Toyota Racing Series cars and drivers will compete for round honours, and the feature race of the weekend, the New Zealand Motor Cup, which could see their name join the list of legends on the fabulous trophy. It’ll be game on for the F1 stars of tomorrow as they duke it out around the challenges of the north Waikato track.

Joining them for the weekend in their only visit to Hampton Downs over the summer season will be the Formula 5000 cars of the Tasman Revival series. These monsters of the past wow the crowds wherever they go with their noise, speed and presence on track and they are always spectacular around the Hampton Downs track. Watch legend Kenny Smith take on a field of these awesome machines as if you were back in the 1970s.

And that’s not all when it comes to this great motorsport event for single seaters. The slip-streaming, all-action racers of the Hi-Q Components Formula First cars are included, along with historic Formula Ford and the anything-goes MATOS Formula Libre field, which traditionally produces some remarkably close racing.

As well as the open-wheelers, there are the two grids of the TRADEZONE GTRNZ series featuring 1000 horsepower monsters and a selection of cars that will likely be amongst the very fastest around the track this weekend. The NEXEN Pro 7 Mazda Racing series is also back in town and will have a field of RX7s and RX8s screaming their way around the North Waikato track.

The massive muscle power of the born again NZ Tranzam Challenge series will be on display and there’ll be some of the all-time classics racing in the Historic Touring Car class.
