The ELF SUPER CUP Series is open to Super Saloons in the South Island of New Zealand.
The Series will race seven rounds at different tracks across the South Island in 2015/16 season. With the Series winner being crowned ELF SUPER CUP Champion 2015/16 at our annual prizegiving in June.
These Super Saloon racecars are on the cutting edge of technology in construction and are powered by 700 + horsepower V-8 engines based on the Chevy and Ford power plants. Nothing is “standard” about these $70,000 + machines that provide dirt slinging, sideways, door-to-door racing action lap after lap.
The in your face excitement of a ELF SUPER CUP Series event is second to none in motorsports!
The ELF Super Cup Series provided its many race fans some of the most exciting and entertaining events in 2014/15 speedway season. With the introduction of the bonus points, this helped to increase the competition amongst the teams.
A total of 22 teams entered the ELF Super Cup last season, with them being split into two groups of 11 to race through the heats and secure top spots for the feature. All points are accumulated with the added bonus of passing points also being available.
The Series will race 7 events in 2015/16 which includes the introduction of Greymouth’s Greenstone Park Speedway to the mix.
Racing at 7 tracks over a 4 month time frame spanning from the very top of the South Island to the bottom, means plenty of hours are spent on the road for an average of 4 minutes to do a 12 lap race. With a feature race lasting around 8 minutes to complete the 25 laps. An average of 17 minutes racing to complete a total of 50 laps which could also see a super saloon consume up to 120L of methanol for their efforts.
The ELF Super Cup will be starting the season at Nelson’s Top of the South Speedway on November 21st 2015, completing the double weekend at Greenstone Park Speedway on Sunday 22nd November.
Don't miss the opportunity to catch these methanol breathing Super Saloons when they hit your town!
