Riders this year are invited to bring non-perishable food to the value of $10 to  Gate One Taupo International Motorsport Park in exchange for Free Entry into the 2nd BADD 3 Hour Endurance Race starting at 2pm, the feature race of the Taupo Road Race Spectacular, the final round of Suzuki sponsored International Tri-Series with a dramatic visual display of rivalry on show from NZ’s top riders, including amongst many, one of NZ’s legends of Motorcycle Racing, Andrew Stroud.
Free entry includes Free onsite Motorcycle parking, and Free overnight camping for spectators on the 27th December.  This event aims to provide entertainment for the whole family.
Spokesperson Jos Mason who started BADD, when her husband was killed by a recidivist drink driver along with two of his friends in 2007, said “We felt Xmas holidays were not only a good time to continue to raise awareness around the consequences of drink driving, reminding the community to use sober drivers, but was also an opportunity to assist the community food-bank, and families at a tough time of year”
