NaZCAR motorsport, for amateur petrolheads and serious pistonheads!

Founded by event guru Dr. Jacob Simonsen, NaZCAR is 100% Kiwi owned and offers various events and race series for newbies through to National Champions, with emphasis on easy, fun, safe and CHEAP entry into the world of motorsport!

How it started? With the "24 Hours of Lemons" in 2016, which quickly became NZ's most popular and successful endurance motorsport series, now called “NaZCAR LEMONS”, perfect for newbies, juniors (over 12 years), wannabees, families and corporate teams. Sense of humour ESSENTIAL!

In 2020, NaZCAR added its Sanctioned National Endurance Championship, called the “PRO SERIES” as well as our highly popular “9 TO 5” (one-day 8 hour) fun days. In 2022 NaZCAR announced another category called "LIMES" which focusses on lots of 'seat time', developing driver race-craft and (naturally) keeping motorsport fun and accessible. In 2023 we added the "MEGA" Endurance series which concentrates on the more faster (and slightly more serious) side of Endurance motorsport - but it's still FUN!
