New Zealand’s most modern motorsport complex started as an ambitious privately funded enterprise and after years of hard work and paperwork, the construction began in February 2007. The completion date was planned for late 2008 but a particularly wet 2007 winter pushed the opening out to October 2009.
The vision was for the park to become a major venue for local motorsport with a modern approach taken during the design process by Clive Bowen of Apex Circuit Design and it would be the most up to date facility in New Zealand offering an entertainment venue for the promotion of motor racing in New Zealand.
It boasts 3 different track configurations along with 2 skidpans areas, one for driver training, the other for drifting as well as an SUV course and go-kart track.
To complement the on-track facilities, the 450ha developments also includes an industrial park, motor lodge, lifestyle blocks, 80 trackside apartments and convention centre.
