Round 4: Taupo 6-7 Feb 2016

More than a race track - Get the Taupo experience

This 3.5km international circuit has proven a challenge for the TRS and A1GP when they ran there. The 830 metre downhill main straight will be one of the fastest in the Toyota Racing Series but the Turn 9/10 complex will be tight and slow. With elevation changes of 4-5 metres, the fast infield sections can be expected to be a challenge. The main straight is 17 metres wide before the final complex, which means there should be plenty of side by side action at maximum speed.

  • Length: Club Circuit: 1.3km. National Circuit: 2.3km. International Circuit: 3.32km
