The 2014 version of New Zealand’s famous GT Radial Thunder in the Park has attracted a mammoth line-up of 11 competitive classes for its annual event, taking place on December 5-7 at Pukekohe Park Raceway, giving it an unprecedented range of racing machines for Motorsport fans young and old something spectacular to look forward to.
Event organisers have confirmed the stellar line-up will include New Zealand’s GT1 & GT2 classes alongside NZGT, with the Pro 7, Porsche Racing Club, NZ Six, SS2000, Formula First, Pre ’65 Super Mini and Star Cars in support.
Favoured as the star draw-card to this year’s event is the ENZED Central Muscle Carsclass with Production & Northern Muscle Car classes joining promising spectators more thunderous action than ever before.
Deborah Day, GT Radial Thunder in the Park spokesperson, says “We’re really excited to bring this number of incredible racing classes to Thunder [in the Park] this year, and that sets us apart. All of our classes are guaranteed to put on a spectacular show and with such a jam-packed timetable, there will be no room for boredom here.”

On track, GT Radial Thunder in the Park promises quick-fire and back-to-back racing with those 11 classes each racing three times, while off the track highlights include fun for families with exciting lunchtime entertainment (soon to be announced), Hot Rod Show and Shine, club displays and “kids fun-zone” to ensure everyone has a fun-filled day at the park.
“There won’t be a dull moment this year,” says Day, “between the racing, and immaculate cars on display, our kids-zone, lunchtime on-track entertainment and our official charity, there will be plenty for everyone to see and do.”
