Hi there <<First Name>>

Aston Martin Vulcan is coming to Hampton
The Southern Hemisphere’s only Aston Martin Vulcan – Wow!
Tony Quinn’s new NZ$4.3m track car was revealed at Highlands Motorsport Park, our sister track, last weekend as part of its third birthday celebrations and boy has it grabbed the country's attention. And if you haven’t heard, the most expensive production car to come to NZ, ever, is coming to Hampton Downs for our Grand Opening - the HD101 on October 28th.  If you missed all the coverage around the Vulcan launch click on these links:

While the focus was on the Vulcan last weekend, the $25m upgrade continued in earnest here at Hampton Downs. The new 1.2km track extension has been sealed and will be fully ready for action by May 22
nd, when our GT members will be the FIRST to drive it.
The GT Membership has just enjoyed a growth spurt and we now have close to 50 members! They are already enjoying quality track time with two full days already done and dusted this month, with three more full days to go. Next month we have another five days scheduled. The membership model delivers great value and is an excellent investment – the membership is our priority so click here for more details or contact us now to join. The membership will be capped at some stage so don’t leave your run too late.


The new International Go Kart Track is coming along nicely also. This elevation and undulation will make the 850m track an absolute must do. Sitting above the Go Kart track will be the new exhibition centre, which will be full of 
paraphernalia, not all motorsport related, from the past and present - this be an attraction the whole family will enjoy.

Completing the Hampton Downs “track family” will be the 4WD track which is looking pretty cool on the drawing board but like everything else it will be ready for the Grand Opening – HD101 event over the weekend of October 29/30. The Australian GT series will headline the official re-opening of Hampton Downs, in what will be the first of two stunning motorsport events – the second being the Highlands 101 two weeks later.

We will keep you posted on progress here at the track in our monthly newsletters but if you want to see it as it happens like us on Facebook! There will also be some very interesting announcements in relation to HD and HMP 101s soon, along with some reveals around the cool new experiences we are going to be offering in the future here at Hampton Downs International Motorsport Park and Events Centre -  so keep a look out!
