Train op­tions planned

Auckland City Harbour News - - SPORT -

Ticket hold­ers for next month’s V8 Su­per­cars ITM 400 Auck­land cham­pi­onship have some trans­port op­tions.

The event is be­ing held at the re­vamped Pukekohe Park Race­way from April 12 to 14.

A part­ner­ship be­tween Auck­land Tourism, Events and Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment (ATEED), Auck­land Trans­port and V8 Su­per­cars, will give pre-pur­chase ticket hold­ers the op­tion of trav­el­ling on a spe­cial event bus or train pass.

It is an ini­tia­tive that Auck­land au­thor­i­ties and event or­gan­is­ers be­lieve is re­spon­si­ble.

‘‘We want to sup­port those fans who have pre-pur­chased tick­ets to at­tend what is New Zealand’s largest an­nual sport­ing event, in its first year back in Auck­land,’’ ATEED ma­jor events man­ager Jen­nah Woot­ten says.

‘‘Ex­pe­ri­ence tells us that a large num­ber of tick­ets hold­ers will make their own way to the event and there will be park­ing op­tions avail­able for them.’’

Those us­ing spe­cial event buses or trains must show their ITM 400 Auck­land ticket.

Of­fi­cials rec­om­mend trav­el­ling early to the event to avoid pos­si­ble de­lays due to heavy us­age.

There is lim­ited mo­bil­ity park­ing avail­able at the race­way and a mo­bil­ity shut­tle will op­er­ate for train and spe­cial event bus cus­tomers.
