Yes, whilst the web version of the new MotorSport Online platform will be mobile friendly there will also be a dedicated MotorSport New Zealand app for smartphones and tablets that competitors and volunteer officials can use.

We are aiming to launch the new MotorSport Online platform on July 5-6.
MotorSport New Zealand will be hosting a series of webinars ahead of the launch of the new MotorSport Online platform to prepare all users. There will also be a range of on-demand video tutorials for all user groups to help them with specific tasks. Comprehensive guides and documentation will also be available to help users navigate the system. This information will be available on a dedicated website - support.motorsport.org.nz which is live now and will be populated with content over the coming weeks.
The platform went through a round of detailed beta testing with Sporty testers and over a dozen independent testers from the motorsport community. Testing has also occurred at select events, and testing will continue to take place in the lead-up to the launch in July.
All Competition and Volunteer Official licence holders will automatically get access to a digital licence via the MotorSport New Zealand app. We will be strongly encouraging all licence holders to utilise the great new features of the digital licence; however, we will not be mandating it in the near future. A physical licence card will still be available at the applicant’s cost. All FIA International licences will continue to receive a physical licence card.
Yes, foreign competitors can sign up for the MotorSport Online platform and enter their foreign licence information and be able to enter events and interact with the system while competing in New Zealand.

The new MotorSport Online platform will be primarily available at online.motorsport.org.nz however possum.motorsport.org.nz will continue to redirect to the new platform.
