The Inter Dominion Trotting Championship Grand Final is a race for trotters within the overall Inter Dominion series. The series is held each year, and is a harness racing competition for both trotters and pacers that has been contested since 1936 in Australia and New Zealand. The host of the series is rotated between the 6 harness racing states of Australia and the North and South Islands of New Zealand. It forms part of the overall Inter Dominion series for pacers and trotters.

The rotation of the Championships is fixed annually at a meeting of the Council. It is fixed five years in advance. It is held in New Zealand once in each four years. The Championships are held once in each racing year at a time and venue approved by the Council by the completion of the Championships in the preceding year. The Grand Circuit race is not held at the same time as the Championships.

The trotting series has been reduced to a simple semi and finals series raced over 7 days. The semi finals were of $40,000 and the final was $250,000 which was comparable with previous series.
