We are back!
Time for our third installment of this premier Icon of an event. Held in the middle of winter, what could be better than the original for New Zealand Indoor Off Road Championship held at the other Icon event for the petrol heads out there, The CRC SpeedShow.

Plenty of rumors of who from across the ditch could be coming, who ever does make an appearance, They will be in for an epic weekend in Aotearoa.

All Details will be updated on the NZIOC Facebook page, jump across and join the group.

Frothin at the tit for this one, have let it pass by the last two years but am already booked in for this year, in saying that I have some very cheap accom up for grabs, one of the perks of being in a union I guess, so if anyone needs somewhere to lay their head flick me a PM, I have several spare slots and it'll be around about the 50-60 buck mark for the entire stay each, so if you're dead set on rockin the event and need some quality accom hit me up.

Can't wait!
Need some redemption after failing to fire in the 2wd buggy class last year and to see if I can back to back the SCT title.
Suppose I might enter a raffle or two also :lol:

Now where has that ESC programming card gone....

Hope to come up for this event with my 8year old son if we can get inside the numbers cutoff!

Was fun the first year, but missed it last year since did 2 other north Island racing trips!

We have just updated our web site to show controlled Tyre's and inserts for this event.
Click here for NZIOC 16 Control Tyres

Please note that the Front 4wd Tyres is not the narrow option that the NZIOC used last year it is the wider 4wd version which will need trimming to work on most cars as they will have a lot of grip.
