The Tracks

Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park has four race track configurations consisting of 1.3KM, 2.2KM and 3.5KM.

There are two separate pit/paddock areas and two separate start/finish locations, allowing for simultaneous use of two tracks (National and Club).

The motor racing circuit has various licences depending on which track configuration is being used, ranging from FIA Grade 2 Motorsport License and International Motorcycling Safety Standards to National Grade 1 and Grade 2 Motorsport License.

Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park features a three-storey pit lane complex featuring 32 pit garages, 8 first floor corporate suites and a race control/corporate/catering complex.

The full circuit has permanent spectator capacity of 25,000 to 30,000 general admission with on-site parking for up to 4,000 cars.

The Drag Strip has been designed to NZDRA standards with spectator viewing of 10,000 to 12,000.

Driver Training

  • Observations of driver training options in New Zealand reveal that there is a lack of specialty facilities capable of delivering a full range of options for driver training and driver training organisations. Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park has been developed with driver training in mind, offering a 9000m2 hard stand area for reversing and obstacle training, coupled with three track configurations for varying levels of skill, plus the drag strip.
     
  • Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park itself in conjunction with Insight Driver Training offers a full range of driver training including Motorsport NZ licence issuing.
     
  • Future plans include an SUV 4x4 training track.
