The ITM 500 returns to its traditional date as a SuperSprint event, moving into a critical stage of the Championship immediately following the Enduro Cup, in a clear sporting space and an ideal weather period.

The ITM 500 Auckland will be one of eight SuperSprint events, comprising two sprint races on Saturday and one 200-kilometre race with pit stops on the Sunday.
