NZV8 Hot Laps principally utilises Manfeild in the Manawatu and Pukekohe Park in Auckland as the primary venues for our 400kw NZV8 Hot Laps activities...
However, subject to venue availability and sufficient attendee numbers we do transport either one or both of our 400kw Holden V8 race vehicles down to the South Island generally 2-3 times per year.
We utilise the
Mike Pero Motorsport Park - Ruapuna, which is situated 13km south-west of Christchurch on Hasketts Road between the Main South and Main West Highways.

Mike Pero Motorsport Park is the centre of this multi motorsports facility which incorporates the circuit, drag strip and speedway all in close proximity to each other.  This is easily the South Island's premier driving facility.

NZV8 Race Experience generally utilises the Level 2 Powerbuilt Lounge corporate hospitality area and adjoining balcony area overlooking the race circuit as its principal operational base, along with the Pit Lane garaging.

There is somewhat limited food options available 5 minutes drive from the venue at Templeton.  
On-site catering may be available by prior arrangement for corporate or special events subject to numbers etc.

There is a numerous selection of hotels and motels in Christchurch and districts.
Whenever our NZV8 Race Experience Team are in Christchurch, they prefer to stay at the Fino Hotel & Suites.

Nearest Major Airport
Christchurch International Airport.  

Rental Vehicle Locations
AVIS & Thrifty Car Rentals are available from both Christchurch City and the Airport.

Frequency of Visits
We conduct driver training in the South Island generally 2-3 times a year subject to demand and availability.  
We would usually do 1-2 consecutive days per visit.
NZV8 Hot Laps is only conducted at Ruapuna subject to minimum attendance numbers making it financially viable to warrant the extra cost of transporting either one or both of our two 400kw Holden NZV8 Hot Laps vehicles down throughout the South Island.  Please feel free to discuss this specifically with us.
