FAQS

Is this a Race Day?

No, it is a Track Day for car enthusiasts to get their car out on the track. We have separate dedicated Race Car Test Days available to book.

Can I change the category I am on the day?

Yes, if you would like to drive in a slower/faster group on the day just speak to our Track Controller. If groups aren’t full, then they will get this sorted for you.

What if it rains or I can't attend the day I have booked?

If the weather is unsafe to drive in, we will postpone/cancel the Track Day and will send out an email with the rescheduled Track Day – this is the same for those that cannot come on the day. If they are unable to make the day, we will either reschedule or send a voucher which is valid for 2 years. There are no refunds or reschedules available if a customer starts and then leaves part way through the day.

Can I take a passenger?

No passengers allowed.

What licence do I need to ride on a track day?

Minimum of a valid New Zealand restricted drivers' licence (either restricted or full licence).

Can I book for another driver?

No, each driver must book for themselves.

Can I sell/give someone else my booking?

No. Booking are non-transferable between drivers.
