FAQS

How can I book for HD Auto?

Firstly, you need to sign up as a member on our website. You will then receive a welcome email to the membership which will contain a private link to the website calendar of the HD Auto days for upcoming Track Days – the cost is a one-off $50 fee to join the membership.

Can I go straight to the National Circuit when I first join?

No, when you first join HD Auto you will need to complete an induction on the Club Circuit which consists of an extended briefing on racing, braking and acceleration lines, this will prepare you for the national track.

Is this a Race Day?

No, it is a Track Day for car enthusiasts to get their car out on the track. We have separate dedicated Race Car Test Days available to book.

Can I change the category I am on the day?

Yes, if you would like to drive in a slower/faster group on the day just speak to our Track Controller. If groups aren’t full, then they will get this sorted for you.

What if it rains or I can't attend the day I have booked?

If the weather is unsafe to drive in, we will postpone/cancel the Track Day and will send out an email with the rescheduled Track Day – this is the same for those that cannot come on the day. If they are unable to make the day, we will either reschedule or send a voucher which is valid for 2 years. There are no refunds or reschedules available if a customer starts and then leaves part way through the day.

Can I take a passenger?

You are only able to take a passenger if your car has a roll cage and they are wearing the same safety equipment as the driver.

What licence do I need to ride on a track Day?

Minimum of a valid New Zealand restricted drivers' licence (either restricted or full licence).
