deep blue to turquoise , set against a back drop of New Zealand’s
highest peaks including Aoraki/ Mount Cook.

The Race Course
Starting from 1700 Meters above sea level you descend 13 kilometers
down a 4WD track that varies from fast open track to steep rocky
gullies until you reach the new fast finish , 1300 meters below!.

The A Day of fun for Everyone
Planned is some entertainment, food stalls and a small lake to swim in
so bring the family and friends to cheer you on. Why not stay the
weekend? We have organized some accommodation deals with a
