Next month's round of Supercars to be held at Taupo is selling out fast, with only limited opportunities for fans to grab the last remaining tickets.

Weekend tickets are gone, but fans can still book their spot to see Supercars on-track at Taupo for the very first time, with Friday tickets still available from $30 for when Supercars holds its first on-track session at the circuit.

The event taking place from April 19-21 will be Supercars’ inaugural visit to Taupo and the championship’s first in New Zealand since 2022.

“The uptake and interest in our first-ever event in Taupō has been incredible,” said Supercars COO Tim Watsford. "And we can now confirm that we have sold out of grandstand and general admission tickets for both Saturday and Sunday of the event.

“There are still tickets available for Friday, which will be special in itself when Supercars hit the track in Taupo for the very first time. We will also hold a full-field signing session so fans can meet their favourite drivers, and all of our support categories will also be on-track in an action-packed and historic day."

Alongside the Supercars Championship, the one-make Porsche Carrera Cup series will also make the trek across the Tasman, while locally-based series’ in Central Muscle Cars, the Toyota 86 Championship, and Formula Ford will also compete.

Friday’s action will be wall-to-wall with on-track action from all five competing categories across the day.

The event is the third of the 2024 Supercars Championship, with Toowoomba’s Will Brown

leading the championship by 17 points over Triple Eight teammate Broc Feeney.

Reigning Bathurst 1000 winner Richie Stanaway is the lead Kiwi in the championship, the Tauranga-native sitting sixth, ahead of 21-year old teammate and fellow countryman Matt Payne in seventh.

They will be joined on the grid by fellow New Zealanders Jaxon Evans, Andre Heimgartner, and Ryan Wood, giving local fans no less than five homegrown heroes to support.
