The D1NZ Summer Smoke Out 2019 Championship season will start with a bang in Mount Maunganui this January.

Round 1 is at TrustPower BayPark Stadium on January 12 and 13 and features the Pyro Company Fireworks Extravaganza.

The event sees New Zealand’s best drifters battling it out in the stadium, sliding along the concrete walls and turning tyres into smoke.

Saturday is qualifying day with the main show running from 3pm – 8pm, then on Sunday it’s the competition day with the main show running from 3pm-9pm.

Gates will be open both days at 10am with a fireworks display at the completion of competition proceedings on Sunday 13 Jan at about 9.30pm.

Tickets cost $45 for adults, and $15 for children.
