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 (Track 2 and Track 3).

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.
