Toyota 86 Championship Points Table

Standings after Round 04, Race 3

Round 01: 17-19 November 2023

Taupo International Motorsport Park, Taupo

 

This 3.5km international circuit has proven a challenge for the TRS and A1GP when they ran there. The 830 metre downhill main straight will be one of the fastest in the series but the Turn 9/10 complex will be tight and slow. With elevation changes of 4-5 metres, the fast infield sections can be expected to be a challenge. The main straight is 17 metres wide before the final complex, which means there should be plenty of side by side action at maximum speed.

Round 02: 26-28 January 2024

Manfeild - Circuit Chris Amon, Feilding

 

Manfeild Park Trust Board was formed in October 2004, and today manages the 70 hectares known as Manfeild. The renaming of the 3km international race circuit to Circuit Chris Amon, after the kiwi racing legend Chris Amon took place in November 2016. The design of this superfast layout was overseen by famous Ferrari-associated racer Chris Amon, who grew up locally. The banked corners are a unique feature for a NZ motor-racing circuit and a particular reflection of Amon’s input; he had experienced – and enjoyed – similar gradients on some of Europe’s most historic tracks.

Round 03: 9-11 February 2024

Euromarque Motorsport Park, Christchurch

 

 

Another iconic and historic New Zealand race track that has been a major part of the history of the Toyota 86 Championship. And another NZ circuit that offers multiple configurations though the championship has always used and will continue to use the standard GP Circuit layout which is 3.33km in length.
The circuit runs in an anti-clockwise direction with many fast sweeping corners. A long lap at over 1 minute and 30 seconds and a circuit that always rewards the smoothest and tidiest drivers.
Formerly and still occasionally referred to as the Ruapuna circuit.

Round 04: 16-18 February 2024

Highlands Motorsport Park, Cromwell

 

 

The 4.1 km international-standard circuit is located near the township of Cromwell, approximately 50km from tourism mecca Queenstown on New Zealand’s spectacular South Island.

Round 05: 15-17 March 2024

Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, Waikato

 

 

Hampton Downs is the circuit that takes New Zealand motorsport into the 21st century and has been designed to meet the very latest FIA circuit safety standards. The contoured circuit with its banked corners introduces an entirely different dimension and offers spectacular viewing opportunities.

Round 06: 19-21 April 2024

Taupo International Motorsport Park, Taupo

 

 

This 3.5km international circuit has proven a challenge for the TRS and A1GP when they ran there. The 830 metre downhill main straight will be one of the fastest in the series but the Turn 9/10 complex will be tight and slow. With elevation changes of 4-5 metres, the fast infield sections can be expected to be a challenge. The main straight is 17 metres wide before the final complex, which means there should be plenty of side by side action at maximum speed.
