The team at NZ Dirt Track Racing are proud to announce a brand new partnership, taking on naming rights of the 2019 Ministocks in Paradise event at TWS Paradise Valley Speedway, Rotorua.
Ministocks in Paradise is annually New Zealand’s biggest youth Speedway event and one of the biggest competitor counts anywhere in the country. Last season, more than 130 Youth Ministocks took to the track in Rotorua, fighting to etch their names into the history books.
For us here at NZ Dirt Track Racing, sponsorship of MIP continues the expansion to support youth racing in NZ, following on from the launch of the two-page Next Generation column in our magazine. Not only will Dirt Track take on naming rights of the event, but we will also be in attendance and are already working on ideas to add even more support to the event.
“We are excited to partner up NZ Dirt Track Magazine with NZ’s biggest SNZ Youth Ministock event, and for what this partnership will be able to do for a meeting that is top priority for so many of our Youth annually. These kids are the future of our sport, there are so many champions in, not only our Adult classes, but also the likes of Richie Stanaway, who cut their teeth at MIP. The more exposure they can get the better it will be for our sport. Thanks to Dirt Track for taking up the challenge,” commented Sonja Hickey, Promoter.
The 2019 edition of the NZ Dirt Track Racing Ministocks in Paradise was held Friday 8th & Saturday 9th February, with full coverage in the March 2019 issue of NZ Dirt Track Racing Magazine.
