Support racing in Northland and get national exposure of your business through Trackside TV.

Ruakaka Racing welcomes Northland or national businesses looking to promote their business on-course or nationally through a race name that is used by betting operators, Trackside TV and race form websites in NZ and Australia. Racing is the perfect sport for business networking as you can mingle with your clients and business partners between races at a relaxed hospitality function rather than a total fixation on the game.
