Track Length: 1.752 miles

Located 30 miles south of Auckland, this track was a replacement for the Ardmore circuit and was built inside a horse-racing track. It was used for the New Zealand GP and national meetings between 1963 and 1966, and saloon car races thereafter. The loop (shaded at the left of the map) formed the basis of the club circuit. In April 1966 the circuit was used in an anti-clockwise direction for one race, but this was never repeated due to a lack of run-off area.

For 1967, the track missed out the loop and held again the New Zealand GP. Chicanes were added in 1974.

A grass circuit was also used in Pukekohe in 1975-76.



At the end of 2012, plans were announced to modify the track, adding three corners and changing the track length from 2.84 km to 2.91 km in order to host the return of Australian V8 Supercars.
