Highlands Motorsport Park Plans Open Week

Next week, from 14 to 21 January, an Open Week is planned for the new Highlands Motorsport Park in Cromwell.

It is a great opportunity for interested people to view the latest developments of the track and its facilities, including the National Motorsport Museum and the Go Kart Track. The Nose Restaurant will be opening on Monday the 14th.

“We have had a lot of interest from competitors and teams who are competing in the National Series at Teretonga this weekend and Levels next weekend to visit the Highlands on their way through”, says Mike Sentch, Manager of the Highlands.

Daily track walks will be held at 11 am. To register, please email: info@highlands.co.nz

The interest in the 80 founding memberships to the exclusive Highlands GT Club has been beyond expectations with 70 registrations so far. This week, registration forms are being sent out with an official registration function being held next week. “If motoring enthusiasts are interested in joining the Highlands GT Club, they can register on the website, but don’t wait too long as there are limited spaces left”, says Mike Sentch. “The Founding Members will have exclusive privileges such as access to the track for a minimum of 200 days a year, access to the Members’ Lounge, tickets to motorsport events at the Highlands and first option to Gasoline Alley, the members’ garages.

The construction of the National Motorsport Museum is completed. Allan Dick, the Start-up Curator for the Museum is working on the exhibitions in time for the Grand Opening at Easter this year.
Apart from a display of significant motorsport vehicles, the Museum will also be home to the National Motorsport Hall of Fame and there’ll be an extensive database of photographs, books and memorabilia.

“This is a very special place and the Museum is going to play a vital role in honouring the very proud history of motorsport in New Zealand. We’re looking for significant cars of course, but also photographs, movie films, videos or dvds, books, trophies, driver’s gloves, helmets, driving suits etcetera — in fact anything that is a part of this country’s remarkable motorsports history. Much of this material, photographs, movies etc, could be duplicated and the originals returned to the owners." says Allan Dick.
