The NZGP Hydroplane Drivers Club and the Hydro Thunder event team are currently working through dates and venues for our 2020/2021 race season with the hope that we will be clear to race by December.
As a build up to the season we will have a couple of test sessions at Lake Maraetai, Mangakino planned for September and October.
Here are the 2020/2021 dates:
5-6th December – Lake Maraetai, Mangakino
30-31st January – Lake Taupo, Taupo
13-14th February – Lake Karapiro, Cambridge
13-14t March – Lake Rotoiti, Nelson Lakes
All of the above mentioned dates are provisional, pending local authority and associated stakeholders at the required venues approval.
We will be governed by the impact of COVID-19 and will follow the guidelines to what we are allowed to do around hosting events and the restrictions that may be imposed.
On behalf of the NZGP Hydroplane Drivers Club and the Hydro Thunder event team, again we thank you for your understanding and will keep you informed with updates as they come to hand.
