The New Zealand Grand Prix, sometimes known as the New Zealand International Grand Prix, is an annual motor racing event held in New Zealand first run in 1950. Currently it is the signature race of the Toyota Racing Series. It is one of only two current national Grand Prix events that are not part of the Formula One Calendar, the other being the Macau Grand Prix.[1] Once an important race on the international calendar, most notably when it was a part of the Tasman Series, with the current domination of Formula One the race has become rather less prestigious. Manfeild Autocourse hosted the event in 2009 and 2010, and will continue to do so until 2014.[2]
