SUPER ROYALE NZ DRIFT TOURNAMENT

Get ready for the ultimate motorsport showdown with this fresh Drift Competition! Super Royale NZ Drift Tournament is an all new competition to the New Zealand stage.

Super Royale Run Down

24 Competition drivers are paired against each other in a randomised, computer generated pairing system. Removing the need for qualification. The ultimate match up of skill.

At Super Royale, we've taken the competition battle tree to the next level with our HYBRID battle tree that includes Redemption Rounds. In addition to the traditional competition, drivers who lose their first battle in the TOP 24 and TOP 12 will have the chance to redeem themselves in head-to-head battles against other losing drivers.

By winning Redemption Rounds, the finalists awarded with Wild Card #001 and Wild Card #002 awarded access back into the Super Royale Battle Tree.

This ultimate test of skill and determination will showcase just how badly drivers want to be crowned Champion on the first ever Super Royale podium. So come on down and join us for the most epic competition this Winter!

Drivers Eligibility

Super Royale is exclusive to any PRO through ADVANCED skill Level drivers with proven battle ability and skill. All drivers apply via the official registration form!

Tyres: Cars are able to run up to a 265 Rear Radial, Semis Ok up front. Opening up even closer battles for everyone to enjoy and keep it more affordable for all!

Computer Generated, Randomised Battle Pairing = No Qualifying!

To add an exciting twist and NO qualification, drivers are placed into a random pairing generator on the morning to provide the structure, giving drivers who lose their battle in the Battle 24 and Battle 12 (Top 24/Top12) bracket a chance to fight their way through redemption rounds to earn one of two “Wild Cards” and a coveted spot in the Wild8 (Top 8) Bracket.

Prizes
