Speedshow sets date for 2010


Speedshow will return to Auckland in July next year

Speedshow 2010 will be held at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland on the weekend of 24 and 25 July.

The fourth annual Speedshow motorsport and automotive extravaganza will again feature the very best race cars of all descriptions alongside fantastic performance cars to delight car fans of all ages, says organiser Keith Sharp.

“Essentially if it’s cool and it’s fast, it’s at Speedshow.

“At its core, Speedshow is a motorsport show – show visitors and exhibitors love the fact that Speedshow keeps that focus. If you love motorsport of any form – historic single seaters, V8s and speedway sprint-cars to dragsters and drifters, you’ll find plenty to enjoy at Speedshow. Add in an incredible array of performance cars ranging from the coolest new cars on the market to hot rods and other customised vehicles, and once again, Speedshow is set to delight fans during its new July date at the Showgrounds.”

Sharp moved Speedshow from its original September date to July because he was able to secure a three-year contract for the July option.

“With the Rugby World Cup coming to New Zealand in 2011, the whole of the ASB Showgrounds and all other venues are booked solid in September 2011, so we thought it was better to secure Speedshow’s dates now,” says Sharp. “We’ve had very positive feedback from exhibitors about the July date and look forward to offering fans a very enjoyable weekend activity during the winter months.”
