Winter NZ Drift Matsuri 2020

New Zealand Drift Matsuri is back with our second event of the year, Winter Drift Matsuri.

This Matsuri is going to be extra special as we have all been cooped up for the past few months and if you're anything like us, you'll be wanting to get out to your nearest track for some fast paced action, catch up with friends and soak in everything that drifting has to offer.

Winter NZ Drift Matsuri 2020

Venue: Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park, Taupo

Date: July 25-26th (Saturday and Sunday)

Spectator Gates open: 9:30am

Driver entries are capped to 110 with spots taken across both the Club Circuit (beginners to amateurs) and National Circuit (intermediate to pro)

Winter Matsuri will feature a licenced bar in the warm and cosy corporate suite overlooking the motorsport park, Blaze N Glaze Premium BBQ & Cheese Burgers, Hungarian Kransky & Fried Bread Cart, along with 'Nobodies Slice Cream'

We will switch the track direction part way through the day for an all new experience and practice for the return of the Matsuri Big Entry Comp > meaning upclose action for all spectators.
