Speed is synonymous with Hampton Downs and nowhere is that more evident than in its development as a go-to destination.
The North Waikato Motorsport Park & Event Centre underwent a $30m upgrade in 2016 under the ownership of Tony Quinn and has cemented its place as one of the best motorsport facilities in the southern hemisphere.
Activities include the now-famous Hampton Downs Go-Karts. Our modern Karts reach speeds of up to 70kmph and the undulating outdoor track makes for an exhilarating experience. Our big track experiences include hot laps in a Lamborghini Huracan. Then there’s the Lexus Safety car ride the whole family can enjoy and the Repco V8 Mustang, U-Drive experience. Other attractions at Hampton Downs include MAD MIKE Whiddett’s Mad Lab and the Toyota Racing Series “Live Workshop”. Don’t miss our very own car show, Caffeine and Gasoline held on the last Sunday of each month and if you want to get your own car out on our many tracks check out Auto Addict on our website. Award-winning coffee and great food are available from our Cafe, and if you drive electric, we have a high-speed charger onsite for your convenience.
