Teretonga and Ruapuna have found rescheduled dates for this year’s South Island Endurance Series, locking in a four-round season.
Both venues were provisionally slated to host rounds one and two of the 2021 championship.
However, the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak across the country forced organisers into postponing both events until further notice.
Today, it is confirmed that Teretonga will now be round three and held on Sunday, October 24.
The series will then conclude at Ruapuna on Saturday, November 6.
Teretonga’s round is just one week after round two at Levels Raceway. It will also be the only event this season that has racing on Sunday to ease the pressure of travel off teams.
Every other round has racing on Saturday.
Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell will open the series on October 2.
Importantly, Auckland remains at Covid Alert Level 4, whereas the rest of New Zealand is at Level 2.
For Auckland-based teams and drivers to travel to the South Island, the province must be at Alert Level 2 or lower.
Hopefully, having over three weeks between now and the season-opener should give enough time for Auckland to drop to at least Level 2.
Sky Sport will also be broadcasting each race live courtesy of The Heart of Racing.
