Hamilton V8 date confirmed

9:50 am on 14 July 2009

New Zealand's sole round of the Australian V8 Supercar Championship in Hamilton has been confirmed for April 16 to 18 next year.

Organisers are pleased with the early confirmation of the date for next year's V8 Supercar Championship series in New Zealand.

Promoter Dean Calvert says it's a much better date as it falls right at the end of the school holidays and clear of other public holidays like Easter.

Mr Calvert says they're confident about prospects for next year's race, with some excellent commercial opportunities developing since the inaugural race in April.
