The Supercar Sprints are kicking off in Taupo this weekend. 

The event is expected to bring up to 70,000 attendees, giving a significant boost to the city and surrounding region. 

Mayor David Trewavas told Mike Hosking that the town is absolutely buzzing.  

He said they had the parade through the CBD last night, and thousands of fans came out to see the cars. 

Taupo has a three-year contract to keep the race in the city Trewavas confirmed, and although Taupo isn’t quite large enough to handle to influx on their own, it’s become a major regional event.
