These include our action packed Trade Racing hotlaps, VIP hosting, golf days, fishing competitions, our Annual Bledisloe Cup Trip, Highlands 101 racing, Classic Fighters Airshow, as well as other local and international sports events. Some skill and commitment may be required!

Mitre 10 Trade once again sponsored the high energy Apprentice Race at the annual Certified Builders Conference. The day started out with the details of the challenge being unveiled - regional finalists had to design and build a working bike out of a sheet of plywood. As the day progressed eleven unique designs were cleverly crafted and bolted together, with the end result showcasing their outstanding talent. The final challenge was to jump on the bike and race to the finish line.
