Highlands Sprint Series 2017/2018
Highlands is as committed to grass roots racing as it is to higher profile events and we are back, bigger and better for the 2017/2018 Highlands Sprint Series (HSS) season.
The HSS is open to all competitors with the required MSNZ licence and vehicle with a minimum of a MSNZ certified half roll cage. This opens up the opportunity for people who haven’t raced at Highlands to give it a go.
For the HSS, the circuit configuration will be circuit A and circuit C of Highlands joined together creating a 2.9km circuit.
We are introducing a new race at each round, the "Fast and Furious" race. The Fast and Furious race will include a safety car after the first 3 laps of racing at which time you will receive series points according to your track position and allow the field to bunch back up. Then a safety car restart will follow for the Fast and Furious dash to the finish and a chance to gain extra series points.

*Note: HSS Round 1 will also include Round 1 of the SS CUP
Round 2 - Saturday 7th April & Sunday 8th April 2018
