Another southern track - brand new!

Highlands Motorsport Park

Cromwell's $20m Motorsport Park Ready For Easter... | Stuff.co.nz

This one snuck in under the radar. It's been a very quick build, without much fanfare - one man's dream, kind of thing.

I see from the website they are hoping to get at least some of their business from manufacturers looking to run tests....The Central Otago area of NZ already attracts a fair few pre-release models, as high altitude and cold temps allow manufacturers to get winter testing done even when the season is wrong in the Northern Hemisphere.

I sure wish there was a new track many points North and West of you.
To say I miss having Race City is an understatement.
True, it was totally tired out with pavement that with one winter would have gone from scary to frightening.
But it was only a mere TEN MINUTES from our driveway !!!!
Hopefully we'll get a new track here too.

Anyone for a hot lap in a McLaren MP4-12C GT3?

Beautiful early autumn day in Otago.
