New Zealand Drift Matsuri is extremely proud of the strong relationships it has forged with its commercial partners and sponsors, most of whom have become great friends and associates of Drift Matsuri organisers and crew.

In a very short time frame we have grown (and are continuing to grow further) from 75 entries in 2015 to now hosting 190+ entries in total over the course of a four day Matsuri.

With a growing number of drivers, crew members and spectators now spreading from the far north to the depths of the South Island, we provide a valuable platform from which to promote your business, its brands and products.

We are also behind the well known "Zeroclass DRIFT" days which regularly attract a great range of people, all extremely loyal to the companies that support the fastest growing motorsport in the world - Drifting. ZCD has been around since 2009 and has been a leading event provider since 2011, these days are also accessible to our current and upcoming partners if requested.

One thing we would like to identify is that we understand. Never before has it become more crucial to get the most from your marketing and sponsorship budgets and to identify cost effective programmes that really deliver.

The Cost?

Advertising, marketing and sponsorship packages can start from as little as $250.
