Each of the three 2024 ‘one-day’ North Island Endurance Series events will share a total prize money pool of $60,000, spread over the 1-hour and 3-hour races, both of which will be broadcast live.
To provide a quality ‘one-day’ event format, there will be a combined class 1-hour race and the feature 3-hour race, plus two 20-minute official practices and a further two 15-minute qualifying sessions for each race format. Each of the three circuits has advised that they will also run an unofficial Friday practice day preceding each race day.
The NIERDC Series starts on Saturday, the 4th of May, at Hampton Down’s, followed by Taupo on Saturday, the 25th of May, with the grand finale being held at Manfield on Saturday, the 8th of June.
The 1-hour race will be for NZ Endurance Championship Classes 2, 3, 4, and 5; class 3 includes FIA GT4 category cars. The 3-hour race will be for NZ Endurance Championship Classes, GT4, GT3 and class 1, for eligible open-class cars. The 3-hour race will also incorporate the Michelin Am-Am trophy, a GT4 category trophy, and a new Porsche Trophy.
Any two of the three NIERDC 1-hour and 3-hour races race meetings will also count toward the 2024 NZ Endurance Championship, as do any two of the three 2024 SIERDC race meetings.
GR8, run by Gary Lathrope and Rachael Murray, has been appointed as the category manager for the NIERDC Series
