We wish you and your loved ones good health at this time and thank you for your assistance in helping us keep everyone safe.
4 April 2022: Changes to COVID-19 Protection Framework
The New Zealand government has removed the requirement to present a My Vaccine Pass at events. MotorSport New Zealand will not require the use of My Vaccine Passes at permitted events, however, businesses, organisations, venues and clubs can choose to make this their own requirement if they wish.
The latest Back in Motion guidelines are available to download at the link below and on our website.
As always if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the MotorSport New Zealand team who will be able to help you out.
Please remember to check back here for the latest updates regarding COVID-19.
