New Zealand’s largest auto parts and car accessories retailer Repco has come onboard as the naming rights sponsor of the
Repco Battle of Jacks Ridge in November.
With over 90 stores nationwide and nearly a century of history behind it, the brand has been a long-time supporter of
Kiwi motorsport events across all formats.
Repco has been a previous naming rights sponsor of Rally New Zealand and has recently announced a new deal to sponsor
the Supercars Championship in Australia as well as the iconic Bathurst 1000.
“Repco has been proudly associated with rally on New Zealand’s epic gravel roads for many years including the Race to
the Sky and the Repco Westland Rally,” Executive General Manager of Repco, Jonathon Maddren said.
“The fantastic new track at Jacks Ridge is going to be a spectator’s dream so we’re really excited to be involved.
“The Repco Battle of Jacks Ridge is set to be an event every motorsport fan is going to love and with this field of
drivers the Battle is on!”
Rally New Zealand chairman Peter Johnston said the partnership was a natural fit.
“Repco have been tremendous supporters of motorsport in New Zealand for a very long time and were quick to jump at the
opportunity to partner with us for this exciting event.
“We really think this is going to be a rally sprint that will take the sport to new levels and we look forward to
sharing that journey with our friends at Repco.”
Meanwhile tickets for the Repco Battle of Jacks Ridge go on sale on Sunday night, starting as low as $30.
With a star-studded field already confirmed and a whole day of entertainment there is great value to be had whether you
are GA ticket holder, watching the action from Jacks VIP Bar or a guest in the Hospitality Village.
Numbers are limited and are expected to sell fast so fans are encouraged to secure their spot without delay. There is a
likely chance that the event will sell out.
The Jacks Ridge WRC Power-Stage has been built around the natural landscape of former national champion Andrew
Hawkeswood’s Whitford property, utilising the undulations, ridges and valleys of the Whitford private property in which
It has been described as “amazing to drive” by the few drivers that have been privileged to sample the course while the
view for the fans is simply mind-blowing.
The Repco Battle of Jacks Ridge will be broadcast live on Sky Sport.
