New Zealand performance vehicle insurer NAC Insurance is showing its support for local motorsport through sponsorship and by giving its customers free tickets to two upcoming events in 2011.
NAC is sponsoring the 2011 NZPC vs. NZV8 Drag Combat event at Fram Autolite Dragway, Meremere on 4 December. There will be a new format for the 2011 event; by classifying vehicles by tyre size the racing will be more interesting and competitive. Fans of burnout competitions will be able to see plenty of smoke at Drag Combat, too.
NAC is offering all its policy holders a free double pass to the Drag Combat. North Island NAC customers will be mailed their free passes, while South Island customers who would like to attend the event are asked to contact NAC who will send a free double pass on request.
The other free event for NAC policy holders is the Drift Nationals for 2011 which will take place on Sunday October 2 at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, Waikato.
This event features the best of New Zealand drifting, plus Super Lap time trials and, new for 2011, Gymkhana. Gymkhana sees drivers battle a tight course on the purpose-built skid pad.
NAC is offering all its policy holders a free double pass to the Drift Nationals. 8,000 people attended last year’s event, so with the addition of the popular gymkhana discipline, it’s anticipated the crowds will be even larger.
As with Drag Combat, North Island policy holders will be mailed passes, while South Island customers are asked to contact NAC who will send a free double pass on request.
The combined value of the tickets to both events is $80.
“It’s a significant investment to make, but supporting this kind of motorsport is what NAC was built on. We want to help build the sport’s profile within New Zealand while rewarding our loyal customers,” said NAC Manager, Kate Smith.
While in the business of insuring high-performance road and race cars, NAC maintains a strong stance on safety. ”The road is not a race track, and we want our customers to be able to experience and enjoy high speed motorsport action on the race track where it belongs,” Kate Smith said
