My family gave me a voucher for a drive experience in an Aston Martin Vantage at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park. What an almighty experience. The package deal included 5 laps of the track which was awesome and 2 hot laps in a Lotus and a hot lap in a Evo 10. This was a well organised day with extremely helpful... More

Spent the day learning drive techniques on an Audi sponsored day. Raced the track, practiced skids and skid control and did some drag racing too. Really well organised. Only slight negative was the catering which was under par, that said I am not sure if this was external caters. All in all a great day spectating and participating.

The Downs is finally the facility it was always intended to be, and perhaps even more. Thank you Tony Quinn for turning this swamp/quarry with racetrack into a Motorsport facility that can rank on the world stage. The inaugural Hampton Downs 101 meeting was great, showcasing the fantastic development work which has turned the facility into a true destination. I... More

I bought my husband a day with "Play Day On Track" at Hampton Downs just south of Auckland at Te Kauwhata. We own an Aston DB9 and they have a Prestige Division as well as Newbies, Medium and Experienced. The thing is, you get to drive your own car. What can be better than that?? There is a pep talk,...

Got to be one of the best racetracks in New Zealand. Easy to get too and child friendly. You can see most of the track from lots of locations which is not normal.

Very accessible track with ok facilities (looking forward to the TQ upgrades). Track seems well maintained, although additional drainage to deal with standing water would be a plus. Garages plentiful, but could use shelving or hooks to keep bags/tools etc off the ground when it's wet. Well worth a visit.

An awesome day enjoyed by all the boys from 11 to 94. They enjoyed a fast drive with a race driver and a drive in race car by themselves .

So lucky to have a world class facility like this in New Zealand. Not far from Auckland, an easy day trip. Would definitely recommend visiting on an open day and their events team are super helpful! 👌

I went to Hampton Downs for the New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing featuring Ferrari. I bought "early bird" tickets for both weekends with grandstand access at a cost of $100, less than the cost of an advance ticket for the (one) weekend meeting at Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell on at the same time! The circuit is great, with... More
