Auckland’s weather over the weekend has resulted in a bonus for people staying at the Covi SuperShow rally at Ellerslie Racecourse.

Auckland Cup Day was rescheduled from Saturday to a twilight race meeting this Thursday, March 16 – the day the rally opens. As a result, rallygoers are now going to be able to enjoy one of the biggest days on the racing calendar, at no extra charge.

Rally parking will open at 11am (an hour earlier than previously advertised) and will be available until 8pm. However, we recommend you get there before 3pm so you can enjoy all the thrills of the seven-race card.


Its great so many visitors coming to the Covi SuperShow are making a weekend of it and staying over at the rally organised in conjunction with the event by the Counties area of the NZMCA. The Auckland Racing Club is creating a campervan park in the Ellerslie Racecourse infield for visitors to the Covi SuperShow.


There is NO NEED to pre book, there’s plenty of room in lovely surroundings with fantastic availability of bars and restaurants on-site and the rally will have its own dump station


Ellerslie Racecourse is easy-to-reach, just off the motorway for out of town visitors and will be connected to the Covi SuperShow venue at the ASB Showgrounds – which is just two kilometres away – by a free all-day bus service for rally-goers.

The Cuvée room, located on the ground floor of the Ascot Stand, will provide the rally with its own dedicated bar from 4pm, the carvery will be serving from 5.30pm with free Wi-Fi. It’s a gorgeous setting, made even better with the RV Super Centre’s ‘Rally’ Happy Hour and good-value carvery meal.


Along with an on-site dump station, and there’s even an on-site golf driving range – you may not want to leave!


Open to the public and NZMCA, the rally provides a great opportunity to meet others who also enjoy the motorhoming lifestyle.
