Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, WAIKATO

The 2017 ENEOS North Island Endurance championship is hoping for its best ever
grids in the one hour and three hour races that will once again form the basis
of this season. The second round will be at the Hampton Downs International
Motorsport Park on June 24th and then concluding with a return to Pukekohe Park
on July 22.

There will once again be five classes offered to competitors, with Class 1,
Class 2, Class 3 and Class 4 based on the capacity of the engine and an
equivalency formula for turbocharged, supercharged or rotary engines and the
top class being the GT class.

Organisers are hoping to again attract not only specialist GT machinery to the
NZ championship series, but also cars from summer series that qualify for one
of the classes, or cars that have competed in the winter based endurance series
during past seasons.

"We have seen good solid grids and some great racing action over the past
few seasons, and we expect this to continue with the 2017 one hour and three
hour championships," explained organising group chairman Kel McBeath.

"It remains the best bang-for-buck series on the North Island and the most
rewarding for a team as it is definitely a collective effort that produces the
best results. It's going to be exciting in every class and we are looking
forward to a great series, the first for ENEOS as the title sponsor."
