Well here we go again, The Southern Tour is the ultimate Playday.

Playday have hosted The Southern Tour for many years and it is just an epic event, the tracks are great but for me it is the socialising and the great friends that are made along the way. So many ways to do it, ride, drive, fly, however you choose this will be a road trip and Playday event that you will never forget.

This year we have a different plan from previous years. This time around we will be hosting 3 completely different tours, one tour for the Cars, one tour for the Bikes and another tour for the Prestige Cars

  • The Car Tour, 6 track days from the 19th February through to the 28th February
  • The Prestige Tour, 4 different tracks starting on the 29th February through to the 7th March
  • The Bike Tour, 6 track days from the 24th March through to the 3rd April.

We should have plenty of spots available this year with the new format but remember the last tour, it sold out in just over an hour from when we released the bank account. The first race will be to just enter The Southern Tour.

How much will it cost for a lifetime of good memories.

  • Cars, all 6 Playdays at 3 different tracks, 2 days at each track $900
  • Bikes, all 6 Playdays at 3 different tracks, 2 days at each track $850
  • Prestige Cars, 4 different tracks, 1 day at each track $1000

How to book in for the Ultimate Playday Southern Tour,

  • There is only one way to book in for The Southern Tour.

  • Payments to the normal Playday/MotoTT account won’t help you secure your spot early sorry. First in first served and once we hit our maximum numbers that’s it full. You will have to wait till 2026.

Important Information


Road cars only, slicks are not allowed, no race cars. Qualifies for Track day cover if you are insured with Prestigio but remember to confirm with them prior to the event. Only 14 cars per group so plenty of room for you to have fun.

The Road Trip:

We will be travelling down the West Coast and anyone wanting to travel with us is welcome to. We will send out a list of where we are staying, you can choose to stay there or elsewhere. The accommodation we have chosen stay at has food & drink facilities on site or close by, this has made for some really good nights. All our accommodation suppliers will give you corporate rates if you mention Playday when you make your booking.


Levels Racetrack at Timaru started life “out in the country” but now has a number of neighbors'. As a result the track can only be hired 75 days per year & they have a few rules they must abide by,

Those rules flow on to us & must be respected. As a result the following must be complied with & it really isn’t difficult

1. Noise levels must not exceed 95.0dBA (That’s fairly loud)

2. Helmets must meet Motorsport NZ Current standards. These can be found in the Motorsport manual.

3. Overalls must be CLEAN & Fire Retardant or Self Extinguishing. 100% Cotton is deemed self extinguishing. (Poly Cotton blends do not comply) Enclosed footwear must be worn.

4. A Fire Extinguisher, minimum 1kg Powder or 1 ltr Foam securely mounted in the car with a metal bracket with 2 clips. (Super Cheap Autos have these for around $30.00)

5. Oil catch can, this is mainly for modified cars as most standard vehicles vent the crank case back into the air intake system, any vehicle venting the crank case to the atmosphere must be fitted with an oil catch can.

6. Secured Battery, factory metal brackets are fine unless your car has a modification that requires something more.

Scrutineering at Levels will be done by Levels scrutineers as per their request; this will not be hard but a general safety check. As your car will either be up to race or WOF standard there should be no problem.

Noise levels must not exceed 95.0dBA at any track.

Riding gear requirements for Motorcyclists;

To participate in Playday Events you’ll need some essential riding gear. Listed below are the minimum requirements.
