Powerbuilt Tools Raceway at Ruapuna Park

The history of New Zealand Motorsport was born in Christchurch 100 years ago.

On the 13th of November 1901, New Zealand organised its first ever public motorsport event held at Lancaster Park (now JADE Stadium). It involved 4 vehicles running in a handicapped race and drew a crowd of 5000 spectators to watch a triumphant R H Every win by a quarter of a mile in 11 minutes and 18.2 seconds.

Ever since that first race, Cantabrians have been passionate about their motorsport.

The Canterbury Car Club was established in 1946 and is the largest and most active motorsport Club in the Canterbury region. The Club has a long and important history itself, and was one of the principle founders of Motorsport New Zealand. It contains many past and current New Zealand Championship drivers.
