Emmy-award-winning show The Amazing Race passed through Invercargill yesterday, understood to be filming for the next instalment of the global phenomenon.

While people on the ground refused to confirm the show's presence, at least four Maui campervans with yellow and black Amazing Race envelopes on their windscreens were parked at the Invercargill Airport yesterday afternoon.

Camera crew were also seen filming teams of two as they exited flights from Christchurch, the first about 3.30pm, and the second at 4.20pm.

The people were filmed running from the airport building and around the carpark before climbing into the campervans and leaving the airport.

One crew member said they were filming a travel show.

The campervans left Invercargill on State Highway 6.

It is unknown which version of the show was filming in Invercargill.
