April dates confirmed for 2010 V8s


New Zealand’s sole round of the V8 Supercar Championship in Hamilton has been confirmed for 16-18 April next year

“The early notice of the date for next year is great. It’s a much better date as it falls right at the end of the school holidays and clear of other public holidays like Easter,” said promoter, Dean Calvert.

“It gives fans plenty of notice to organise themselves for the event, which promises to be the best one yet. We learned a lot from the first year and fans that came back this year remarked on the positive changes we made.”

With an early announcement of next year’s date, the organisers can now finalise plans for public tickets sales.

“We expect to have tickets on sale for the public next month. The residents and businesses on the circuit who give us so much support will receive the first offer of a discounted ticket price. This is on top of the free tickets we provide that was more than $300,000 worth this year.”

The Hamilton 400 is also planning on a road show throughout the country later this year.

“We are excited about next year’s race. We are planning further improvements and believe the development in the V8 Supercar Championship will result in some very exciting racing as has been seen in recent rounds. V8 Supercars is continuing to prosper and grow. And Hamilton offers the only opportunity to see Australasia’s premier motorsport series in this country.”
