IRG World build up comments
This relatively young facility was first built in the minds of two motorsport enthusiasts. When friends Tony Roberts and Chris Watson bought two farms next door in 2003, they had no idea how many obstacles there were. Struggles with the administrators of adjacent areas, incl. the deportation of the prison system or concerns about littering the area, although there is still an open garbage dump 2 km next door.
These are only the main problems that, apart from the vagaries of weather, delayed the fulfillment of dreams about their own race track. Years later, it was possible thanks to the connection with the area of the construction track of the single-family houses, although many people knocked their heads, 80 apartments were sold within 5 weeks and funds were obtained for the completion of the work. The success was finally announced in 2010 when Hamptons Downs Motorsport Park was officially opened by the Mayor of Waikato.
After 2015, the track was renovated and is probably one of the most technologically advanced facilities in the world to this day, the system for controlling start lights, track flags, pitlane speed maintenance, Mylaps synchronization, and even monitoring of ambient sounds sets the canon of full safety control. Hampton Downs has become the local mecca of motorsport because it does not have to share the land with Horses like Pukekohe, but with those traditionally driven by oats and water.
Now with that said let’s build up to the race and the glorious sound of roaring V8 supercars
