The venue for this event is Stump Bay, at the Waiotaka Scenic Reserve, on Frethey Drive, turn-off from SH 1, just north of Turangi.

A perfect spot for racing, parking, relaxing and spectating. Come along and join us for the last rounds of our 2024 Summer Series! There is plenty of space for trailers, tents and gazebos to set up on the shores, so bring along the whole family and enjoy the adrenaline!

Stump Bay is also a dog-friendly venue, with available toilets on-site and cafes can be found in Motuoapa (5mins North) or Turangi (10mins South).

Please note: we have not secured a food or coffee trailer for the weekend, but will have a sausage sizzle available for gold coin donations.
