In 2022 MotorSport New Zealand celebrates its 75th Anniversary! MotorSport New Zealand Inc was initially inaugurated in October 1947 as the Association of New Zealand Car Clubs. Incorporation was achieved in November 1950 and in 1967 with a membership of 58 clubs the name was changed to Motorsport Association of New Zealand Inc.
In 1996, the name was changed to its present title. Membership of the organisation has continued to expand since with now over 90 member clubs holding membership.
During its 75th year, MotorSport New Zealand will be hosting a range of promotions and activations across the wider sport and industry to celebrate this milestone.
75th Anniversary Gala
MotorSport New Zealand will be hosting a special 75th Anniversary Evening at Auckland’s Vodafone Events Centre on 3 December 2022.
Broadcasting icon Stephen McIvor and international motorsport commentator Greg Rust will host an entertaining evening celebrating New Zealand’s proud motorsport history.
