It's back it's bigger and more adrenalin hitting than ever!!

The Valvoline D1NZ National Drifting Championship returns to the only night theatrical showcase of the season at the bespoke Mt Smart Stadium. Limited tickets available so don't sleep on securing your tickets!

In 2021 D1NZ takes the event concept outdoors and back to one of the original OG custom D1NZ circuits that always provides an electric atmosphere after a 7 year hiatus.

Please note - This event has strictly limited capacity and is an event not to miss if you want action, acceleration and effects not seen with Drifting in NZ – we went indoors but that was just a tease for the attributes we have planned at Mt Smart - Flame throwers, CO2 Cannons, Pyrotechnics, obstacles and more!! 

Stay tuned as the series has many special announcements to follow in the lead up to 2021 with over $50,000 in prizes and prize money on the line.


  • Please note in 2021 The Kaspa Transmissions Pro-Sport party will be completed in its entirety on the first day (Friday) except the Grand Final at Baypark. 
  • Saturday Features the Pro Category only. 

This event is aimed to be a sunsetting evening and night showcase, our aim is to provide an entertaining evening event where battles run from 6.00pm – 9.30pm, Please remember there are no pass outs so to bring what you need. Times may vary and change without notice due to the nature of Motorsport.
