D1NZ Timings:

It's back it's bigger and more adrenalin-hitting than ever with an action-packed weekend for The Valvoline D1NZ Century Batteries Super night.

The Valvoline D1NZ National Drifting Championship returns to the custom circuits for the only night theatrical showcase in Auckland of the season at the bespoke limited capacity Mt Smart Stadium.

SOLD OUT IN 2021 D1NZ takes Mt Smart to a new level of production and back to one of the original OG custom D1NZ circuits that always provides an electric atmosphere for NZ Drifting.

Please note - This event has a strictly limited capacity.

Mt Smart Stadium is an event not to miss if you want action, acceleration, and effects not seen with Drifting in NZ - Flame throwers, CO2 Cannons, Pyrotechnics, obstacles and more will be reincluded on the Saturday night show with a huge thanks to CENTURY BATTERIES For backing the last two-night rounds. 


Separate to this on Sunday the team brings an all-new event to NZ - The Zoo Performance Super Drift Cash Kings event - where over 70% of driver entry goes back to 1st place - who will take the biggest cash prize in NZ Drifting History?!

Well there is only one place to be to find out:


Hey fans, after talking to our epic drivers that have committed to a full season with D1NZ across both Pro and Pro-Sport, alongside many drivers wanting to come support this event we are moving Zoo Performance NZ Cash Kings to a new date 🧐
With such close proximity with The D1NZ Grand Final just two weeks later and two stadium rounds compacted into the season due to Covid we want everyone to enjoy this new event and not have the pressure of the Championship on the drivers hands.

So collectively we made the call to allow the Championship to be over and the gloves taken off at a later date - Stay tuned we will announce this in the coming week.

Current ticket holders will be transferred to this date or will be issued full refunds with an email hitting their inbox tomorrow.
We apologise for those that may have planned a long weekend with D1NZ back to back with Cash Kings but the drivers are the ones putting on the show and we want them to enjoy the rest of the season allowing them to put on a killer a Grand Final and get amongst this new concept!!
