The vision: 2021 and beyond
We want this to be a must-see event for everybody. The experience will combine top-notch racing with a retro festival atmosphere. We’re talking plenty of action on and off the track – live music, old-time fashion, plenty of food and drink options to get you in a party mood, and a vibe that is completely unique to Southland.
Long-term, we want the George Begg Classic Speedfest to be an event people just can’t miss.
It’s going to be a petrolhead’s paradise, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
