The New Zealand TT (Tourist Trophy Races) which also includes the 4th round of the 2013 New Zealand Superbike Championship. Hampton Downs is the country's newest racing circuit located on State Highway One between Auckland and Hamilton.
The event is being promoted and organised by the Auckland Motorcycle Club Inc who plan on making this a full on family event, catering for the children and the wives/partners of the petrol heads.
For the youngsters there will be a range of activities supplied by Cambridge company 'Event Fun' they will be bringing surf board challenges, mazes and yet to be confirmed one of the biggest slides in the southern hemisphere, along with a face painting artist and more. The emphasis for the spectator being on fun. In addition a range of craft stalls from local artists within the North Island displaying and selling their work as well as trade/dealer/accessories stands from the motorcycle industry and stands from others displaying their business's wares from specialist camera suppliers, camping gear to tool suppliers and so much more.
There will be food outlets and fresh coffee available from onsite caterers and access to 'Hamptons' the bar and food outlet with a panoramic view from turn one to two from its deck.
Bring a radio!
Riders and spectators need to bring an FM radio and tune it to 102.5 FM, most cell phones have this capability. Race teams are also advised this is going to be the best way to hear not only the commentary but also dummy grid calls. Hampton Downs are working at extending the public address system and improving the quality but is still not 100% yet so to keep in the loop about what is going on it is advised that you tune in 102.5FM at the track.
Come and enjoy a fantastic day at the circuit and watch the track thrills provided by some of the best riders from New Zealand and from several from Australia in some of the closest racing we have seen in a long time. Not forgetting at Hampton Downs plays host to the stand alone New Zealand TT championships which have been run since the early 1930s and started being run on Waiheke Island in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf. The last Superbike race of the weekend is also the "Geoff Perry" memorial race. So it is a full on weekend of two wheel action.
Make it a date Saturday 17th March (practice and qualifying and racing including a 1 hour race featuring Hyosung Cup Machines, one machine, two riders.) Sunday 18th March a full day of fun and racing.
The meeting is being organised and promoted by the Auckland Motorcycle Club Inc.
