D1NZ Round 4 Mt Smart - Friday 10th - Saturday 11th February
The last few D1NZ rounds - pretty much self explanatory why these are all must-see events! I'm especially looking forward to the Whangarei round as I missed out last time they held a D1NZ round there in the 2010 season. Also note the other dates below:

D1NZ Round 6 Hampton Downs - Friday 6th - Saturday 7th April
Stance Off - Sunday 26th February
Stance Off 2012 is a new event following up on the success of the VASK Stance Off meet held last year. This year the team behind Stance Off are stepping away from the VASK umbrella and opening up the event to the public, with all makes and models welcome.

I am particularly excited about this event - the Leadfoot Festival is nearly here! The website tells us: 'The Leadfoot Festival is a unique weekend bringing together a mix of classic cars, vintage motorcycles and motorsport legends. Limited tickets will be offered to the general public with an invitation to Rod Millen’s private grounds at Leadfoot Ranch. The 140 acre, ocean-front estate features a long driveway that winds through the property designed to be the perfect hill climb. Guests will be given one of a kind experiences featuring unparalleled access to the drivers, pits and racecars. The event is a true celebration of motorsports and all things automotive.'
There is no way I am missing out on this! Click here to read more.
