NEW LEVIES AT TAUPO

NZ Performance Car - - Nzpc Team -

Ex­pect to be a lit­tle lighter in the pocket next time you hit Taupo’s Bruce McLaren Mo­tor­sport Park (BMMP), with the in­tro­duc­tion of a new Re­pairs and Main­te­nance Levy, ef­fec­tive Oc­to­ber 1. The new levy is in re­sponse to ris­ing com­pli­ance and in­sur­ance costs the track is fac­ing. The fee is $25 for cars and $15 for bikes per day, and for mul­ti­ple-day events it will be capped at $35 and $25, re­spec­tively. A state­ment re­leased by BMMP stated, “The levy is now nec­es­sary to en­able TMP [the com­pany that owns and runs BMMP] to con­tinue to pro­vide a safe and ap­pro­pri­ate track fa­cil­ity for com­peti­tors, pro­mot­ers and track day users.”

The levy will cover the first $1K of dam­age caused if you man­age to crash and dam­age any­thing at the track, but does not cover any grass dam­age, fines, etc. that a hirer might in­cur (we’re look­ing at you, drifters). One way to avoid pay­ing the levy un­til March next year is to hire a garage, as the levy will be ab­sorbed into that cost.
