Sweeping elevations in the heart of the Waikato - Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, Hampton Downs
Hampton Downs introduces an exciting innovation to New Zealand motorsport – sweeping elevations on a circuit that rises and falls away over gentle hill country in the Waikato region.
The six other permanent circuits in New Zealand are all laid out on a flat landscape.
Hampton Downs is the circuit that takes New Zealand motorsport into the 21st century and has been designed to meet the very latest FIA circuit safety standards. The contoured circuit with its banked corners introduces an entirely different dimension and offers spectacular viewing opportunities.
