Jacks Ridge has been purpose-built as a World Rally Championship Power-Stage for the 2020 WRC Rally New Zealand which was subsequently cancelled in May due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Jacks Ridge WRC Power-Stage has been built around the natural landscape of the rolling hills of Whitford, 20 minutes from downtown Auckland and utilises the undulations, ridges and valleys of the property.

It has been described as “amazing to drive” by the few drivers that have been privileged to sample the course while the view for the fans is simply mind-blowing.

The Jacks Ridge WRC Power-Stage is 6.3km of stunning gravel road, of which we have chosen the 2.2km spectacular jump-filled mid-section as the Battle of Jacks Ridge Rally Sprint stage.

No matter whether you chose to be a GA ticket holder, watch the action from Jacks VIP Bar or are a guest in the Hospitality Village, you will be close to the action and will be able to see most of the Rally Sprint Stage.


GENERAL ADMISSION TICKET - OVER 60% SOLD OUT! 

As a GA ticket holder, you will get to wander around two incredible hillside viewing areas for the best-of-the-best viewing action.

The main viewing area is on top of the ridge with a commanding view of the majority of the Rally Sprint stage, directly above the “Double Dipper” – a high-speed sweeper that the rally cars will come through sideways lining up for the Mega Jump. From the top of the ridge not only will you will see the cars come from the sprint start, make their way through in front of the Hospitality Village, through the Double Dipper, over the mega jump and through the switch-backs dropping into the valley, you’ll also have great views of them coming out of the valley and over the DAYLE ITM Flying Finish.

The Island Block is an in-field viewing area on the inside of the Double Dipper which has almost as good a view as on top of the ridge, but what makes this area so good is how close you will be to the Mega Jump and the DAYLE ITM Flying Finish.

To make sure fans don’t miss any of the action, both areas have big screen views.

To make things super-handy we have positioned the main food court on top of the ridge and to really top things off, buy yourself a 4WD Parking Pass and you will only have to walk meters to get back to your car.

As a GA ticket holder you will be able to walk from the GA viewing areas to the competition car holding zone behind the VIP area and access the Service Park.


SOLD OUT - JACKS VIP BAR TICKET - SOLD OUT

Jacks VIP Bar is for the die-hard fan who wants more than a GA ticket, a cold beer, some finger food and shelter from the elements, but doesn’t want to break the bank doing so.

Sharing the same embankment as the Hospitality Village, Jacks Bar is a marquee environment with bar leaners and an outside viewing area. Over-looking the main arena, you will be close to the action and will be able to see the rally cars come sliding around the ‘Cliff Hanger’ as they head toward you and beneath your feet. You will have close-up action of them jumping over the ‘First cross-over’ up the hill to the ‘Double Dipper’ over the ‘Mega Jump’ and down into the valley.

Positioned on the end of the Hospitality Village, you will be line-of-sight for the drivers as they eye up the DAYLE ITM Flying Finish to complete their run.

When the cars drop into the valley out of sight, you won’t miss a piece of the action as you have a giant screen in the main arena in front of you.

As a Jacks Bar ticket holder you will have access to a cash bar with finger food provided throughout the afternoon.

Make sure you don’t have too far to walk and get yourself a 4WD Parking Pass
