The design of this superfast layout was overseen by famous Ferrari-associated racer Chris Amon, who grew up locally. The banked corners are a unique feature for a NZ motor-racing circuit and a particular reflection of Amon’s input; he had experienced – and enjoyed – similar gradients on some of Europe’s most historic tracks.

The seven cambered corners that make up the ‘Circuit’ are a brilliant testing ground for any driver. With five realistic passing opportunities, along with Manfeild being the longest motor racing course with uninterrupted views in the Southern Hemisphere; spectators are treated to some great action.

Round 3 of the Super Sprint NZ summer series will feature:

✔ Castrol Toyota Formula Regional Oceania Championship
✔ Toyota 86 New Zealand Championship 
✔ Summerset GT New Zealand Championship
✔ Super V8s Race Series (including the new TA2 Series)
