Competing in the Series

TRS is a well-recognised highly competitive “one design” single seater racing series that provides competitors with a unique “KIWI” racing experience.

CTRS has an impressive list of graduates who have gone on to further their careers in higher level series, many of them now compete at the highest levels in motorsport around the world.


CTRS currently runs over five consecutive weekends from Mid-January to mid-February, each of the five events include a minimum of 5 x 30 minute practice sessions on Thursday/Friday plus qualifying and 3 races over Saturday and Sunday. Total competitive mileage over the series between practice and race is approx. 3000kms.  

TRS Teams

There are currently four multi car teams who are contracted by the series to run drivers. All cars and engines are prepared at Toyota Racing NZ base prior to the series to ensure they are all ready to start the series equalised. CTRS teams are then responsible for the maintenance and preparation of each car for the duration of the series. 


The new FT-60 - the third car the series will have used in a championship that stretches back 15 years - is a state-of-the-art racing
machine that is more like a scaled down Formula One car than either of the two previous machines, the FT-40 and the FT-50. 

Designed like the previous two series cars by Italian manufacturer Tatuus, the chassis is similar to that used in other global junior Regional F3 formulae, but will use a new engine that will pack a powerful 270 horsepower (200 kW) making it one of the best performing junior cars on the FIA’s recognised pathway to Formula One

Spare Parts

CTRS has a comprehensive mobile parts operation at every event to supply teams with any new part as and when required. 

Technical Support

CTRS teams are supported by experienced Toyota Racing mechanical and data engineers who will assist teams with any technical issue that arises. CTRS also has authorised carbon fibre repairers onsite to make small repairs as required.
