Top Half Background

The Top Half Series has been run for more than 24 years and is regarded as being an iconic series by competitors. It featured in the early stages of the motorsport  careers of a number of well-known and internationally successful competitors such as Mitch Evans, Ritchie Stanaway, Nick Cassidy and Wade Cunningham.

This series was founded by the Auckland, Mt Wellington and Hamilton clubs. Each year the 4 round series is operated between these clubs and their partner clubs Tokoroa, BOP, Rotorua, Whangarei and EBOP. Hence the name Top Half.

The Series is raced on a points based format. 4 pre determined grid draw heats and a fifth heat per round.  4 rounds, 20 races and only 2 drops. To win this series you not only have to be fast, but be consistent, adaptable, be able to pass well and make sound judgements.  It’s a true drivers series!

The series has been constantly been the biggest in NZ. Focused of the growth of driver in a fun yet very competitive environment.
