Just when you thought racing in a Motorsport team on an International Race track was reserved for rich Playboys, along comes NaZCAR Limes! Here's a few facts and figures to avoid any Confucius:
We run many different Limes events throughout NZ - so once you've spent cash on your precious Lime, you can use it multiple times. You can even race in any other event you want to, since you will already meet most motorsport standards. The 'spirit' of Limes is to build and drive a medium-level but FUN car on a professional track for hours on end - sometimes for the whole weekend, and see if it (and your team) can last the distance - basically it's Motorsport WITHOUT the politics - there are no major prizes for being the fastest, loudest, most laps or expensive entries - the emphasis is on drivers getting as many laps and as much SEAT TIME as possible - while still having FUN!
Each endurance event is usually held during a weekend, and typically starts with Scrutineering/track test, then racing commences. Actual track time varies depending on the format; from 3 hour mini-endurance to the full 24 hours. Each event usually starts with a rolling grid, so everyone gets a fair chance to familiarize themselves with the conditions/track/other mad bastards. We also run continuous 24 hour and day/night races - keep an eye on our website + Facebook page for more information.
Each team must consist of a car (duh!) and drivers, plus any pit/support crew. This is so the team can share in track time, cost of building/running/replacing bits on the car and ensure that no team fatigues too much (safety first, you morons!). Drivers must be aged 12+ years (special conditions apply for 12-16 year olds), hold a current New Zealand or Internationally recognized Driver's License. Each race will also require a "Race Licence", which can be arranged before/during each event - we'll keep you updated.
The simple answer is ... NOW!!! Check our website and Facebook page for the calendar of upcoming events.
Like any activity, it's going to cost money to race - BUT driving in Limes is some of the least expensive fun you can have in Motorsport in the world! A summary of the main costs (incl. GST, subject to change) are:
OK... So you've spent a few bucks on your Lime - now it's time to get it souped up... There is NO LIMIT to the amount of modifications or "Safety" equipment you can add (check the Rules & Regs for the minimum Safety requirements):
Your safety is paramount, so we make every effort to protect you and your car.
