Race – Getting Started
A motor race is an event where many cars compete at the same time, with the aim of being the first car to complete the required number of laps. Races can be over a variety of distances, ranging from just a couple of laps, up to as many laps as can be completed in a 24 hour period.
Although motor racing can never be truly cheap, racing needs not be expensive, particularly at club level where it’s more about the fun of competing and doing your best. It is still possible to race competitively in a car which you have driven to the circuit. Races may be held for specific groups of cars, based on engine capacity, make/model of car, type of car, etc.
To obtain a C Grade licence, competitors must first be a member of one of our member clubs. Once you have a current club membership, you will need to pass the C Grade Exam (see Licence Examinations), and complete the licence application process through the MotorSport NZ Online system.
