25-27 January 2020
2020 4 & Rotary Nationals
Claudelands Event Centre, Hamilton
Meremere Dragway, Meremere
Hampton Downs Motorsport Park
Listen up, people — if you thought that the extension to a three-day format last year was the biggest thing to hit the 4&Rotary Nationals, you may need to sit down for this doozy. For the first time in the event’s 23-year history, it will be held outside of Auckland! Yep, you read that right: with new owners (Downtime Entertainment) taking the helm for the first time in 2020, the calendar mainstay will head southwards to the Waikato region. The show portion will now be hosted at Claudelands Event Centre, Hamilton, on Saturday, 25 January, and will be followed up by the customary day of drag racing at Meremere Dragway, Meremere, on the Sunday. Monday will see the party shift over to Hampton Downs Motorsport Park — another first for the event — for a full day on track. Entries are open now, and, as we all know, they sell out bloody quick, so make sure you get yours right now, or you’ll be forced to wander around looking at what could have been.
