Rally New Zealand will make history inside Mt Smart Stadium when it returns as part of the World Rally Championship in Auckland this September.
Today Rally New Zealand organizers confirmed that Mt Smart Stadium will act as a base for the event’s service park and rally village for the fans. A historic Super Special Stage is also set to be created to run inside the stadium on both Friday and Saturday of the rally.
The four-day event will be based in Auckland from 3 to 6 September 2020 and has the backing of Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED).
The Mayor of Auckland, Phil Goff confirmed Mt Smart Stadium as the home base for Rally New Zealand today, driven into the stadium by kiwi rally star Hayden Paddon, who also confirmed his involvement as the official ambassador for the event.
Phil Goff says, “Auckland has a strong rally heritage going back more than half a century and it’s good to be able to once again host the WRC after an eight-year hiatus.
“Mt Smart has a capacity for 30,000 fans and has good transport connectivity, including proximity to rail and bus services. It will be a great event for locals and for visitors to Auckland, who help boost our local economy.
