Notes: My most frequently visited circuit in New Zealand. Located right off the Motorway about an hour’s drive south of Auckland. A track was not even finished yet when I started marshaling there, playing host to a variety of Pro and Amateur club events. I got to learn to be a flag marshal here, as well as ride on a rescue truck to learn that role as well. Responding with a fire extinguisher, hooking up crashed cars for a flat tow, etc. In 2016 the track was almost unrecognizable with modern pit garages, race control and a large section of track completed to extend the circuit.
