Since opening in 1963 Pukekohe Park Racway has held the title as the only successful major motor racing circuit in the top half of the North Island( for an aerial picture and a list of a few great drivers who have graced this circuit go here). There has been a lot of speculation about Pukekohe Park Raceway and its continued use but truly the death knell has been sounded by the surrounding land development and its days as a motor race circuit are numbered.
Having raced motorcycles with the Classic Racing Register at Pukekohe for 15 years ( yes I once was young and adventuresome and known then as McSlowly but I could still beat the Knobster) I will sadly salute its fairwell for the valiant service that it has provided over the last 46 years but time has moved on and a new challenge has presented itself in the form of the Hampton Downs Motorsport Park. Situated approximately 60kms south of Auckland on State Highway One, on the northern boundary of the Waikato, is the new race track.
To promote interest in the new circuit Hampton Downs management have been offering up end of month tours of the complex and circuit. An opportunity arose for Junior McSnipper and myself to attend last months tour (August 30th) and despite the rain squalls we had an enjoyable time and were most impressed with the new layout. Being a very amateur photographer I had to borrow Mrs McSnippys Box Brownie that normally hides in the far off corner of her drawers.
Moving clockwise around the circuit starting from the end of the front straight (Corner A) the most noticeable thing about the track is that a lot a hard work and thought has been invested into its design.

What follows here is a very brief history of the event while it was on Waiheke Island up until 1950 when the event was moved back to mainland NZ. Bear in mind that for the 1931 -1950 period the course consisted of shingle roads(sometimes referred to as metal).
Based on excellent performance, Sid Moses and Alf  Matson were  selected to represent NZ at the Isle of Man TT for 1933. 1936 Charles Goldberg riding a **works** Velocette set a new record of 3 hours 4 minutes 38 seconds. At the Isle of Man in June he rode a junior race class 350cc Velocette into sixth place in the Senior 500cc race, eclipsed only by the ??works?? entries. 1937 Poor weather conditions featured for the 1937 event and riders faced a continuous deluge of rain. 1938 Lloyd Dixon of Kawakawa, riding  the 1937 race winning Velocette, won with a time of 3 hours 5 mins 25 seconds. 1939 Len Perry, riding a Velocette, won this event  with a time of 2 Hours, 47 minutes and 31 seconds.
At the Isle of Man, Len rode well but crashed in practice and injuries eliminated him from the event. 1941 With much required manpower sought overseas a token race of 18 laps was staged before the event was abandoned for the duration of the war. 1947 A milestone in the development of the NZTT was reached when the 1947 fixture was expanded to include a separate Junior and Senior race .
1948 Retirements were at this event were high, with of 15 of the 23 entrants not completing the race.
Firstly to Judith Phillips for making a this material available, enabling me to reproduce it here. Has New sails, paint, brakes, tires, and decarb rotax 503 with EIS, alt, airpspeed and vertical.
Okay there will be a few of you that will take me to task about Taupo but it didn’t start up until the early 1970s and then it was only as a minor karting track of approximately 1 km in length.
Whether that be for 2 years or 5 racing there has become more difficult with lack of up keep of the track facilities and an increase in complaints of noise.
It is still under construction but has come along way in the last 2 years and is currently being readied for the first official meeting in January 2010, the Tasman Revival Meeting run by the Historic Racing Club. It is good to see motorsport interest on the increase as over 200 other people had the same idea of a free look at the development.
This view is with regard to motorcycle racing, particularly our Pre 1945 interest however the views are universal for any person wishing to race any type of vehicle. Gone is the old school standard of joining a few corners with a few straights on a piece of flat ground (Taupo springs to mind). There is still a lot of work to be completed, with landscaping, carparking, and camping areas yet to be finished.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. The event was organised by the then Sports Motorcycle Club (Inc) of Auckland (In 1932 there was a name change to the Auckland Motorcycle Club). This was a race of attrition, as by lap 17 only Len Sowerby and Sid Moses were left on the course. Both acquitted themselves with distinction and returning with coveted replica trophies and, additionally, Sid also received the Nisbet Cup for ?˜Pluck and Courage??. The NZACU ( New Zealand Auto Cycle Union) promises to those competing at Waiheke to give consideration to the selection of its riders for the Isle of Man.
Bradley from Nelson riding a Rudge won this event, he reduced the previous years?? time by 7 minutes. Retirements came fast but Alf Matson pushed his Velocette to its second win in 3 hours 27 minutes & 5 seconds. Velocette offered considerable competition early on in the race, but were unable to triumph.
Although petrol restrictions still limited motor cycle sport, the event was revived with a 20 lap race.


The Junior race was for motorcycles up to 350cc and the Senior race was for motorcycles up to 500cc. The Senior race had many prominent riders retiring through either machine or rider failure.
Please bear in mind that the 1934 programme is a scanned copy of a photocopied photocopy and therefore the quality isn’t great. Its available as a research tool at the Auckland library or you buy a copy from the Auckland Motorcycle Club. Prop * Clipped wings qualified sales * 3-axis control * Nice instrument panel * Strobe lights - contact Dan Settle owner- located Mt.
Its international status is only recent since its new upgrade was completed a few years ago. There have been some fantastic racing moments had by many on this circuit and as such the memories will live on far longer than the black seal that is currently covering the ground. Actually some of its misguided miscreants were used in assembling some of the tyre safety walls. Visitors were wide and varied, from motorcyclists, to hot rodders, classic car owners, and even the Alvis Owners group turned up.
From the moment you start descending around the sweeping righthander one instantly gets the impression that yes this circuit is definitely going to offer challenges with its uphill turns and downhill twists, and to leave the track with a sensation of anything less than excitement means that true racing is probably not for you.
However the work that has been completed is of international standard so when everything is done Hampton Downs will be the envy of all other tracks. It is best viewed on broadband and as the McSnotty PC is steam driven via dial-up it just couldn’t hack the pace so I miss out on this one. Regardless of whether the Barnstormers were in the AFL, AF2 or the newly developed AFL in 2010, Christina has followed the team, its fans and its players. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. The Secretary of the club, Harry Fletcher, had been working for 3 years prior to 1931 to gain permission from various local authorities and bodies for the road closures required to run the event. 25 riders lined up for the inaugural event and after drawing for their starting or grid position were sent off in 15 second intervals. On lap 24 Lens bike broke a rocker-arm and he had to withdraw, leaving Sid to finish the race as the only rider left on the circuit to cross the finish line. Unfortunately misfortune overtook him at Waiheke the following year when he collided with a sheep during practice and while he made a marvelous recovery his racing career was over. Run on separate days the bracket of races proved a triumph for Len Perry and Velocette, for this combination won both events. Due to the wet weather the Senior race riders suffered from a steady stream of mud which was thrown up from the clay roads of the Island. The track has been a friend to many and equally it has had its critics, racers who have never managed to master the awkwardness of the track, and those who have never raced but still found it necessary to offer an opinion as to the poor condition and design of the circuit. Completion of this section is planned for January 2010 however given New Zealands changing weather patterns it may take a little longer. The route was along Belgium St, Ostend Rd, Onetangi Rd and then around the Seaview Rd loop. The first rider away fell at the first corner and his machine went over a bank, he eventually remounted and completed a lap but retired early with mechanical failure. Unfortunately he crashed during practice and suffered a concussion which finished his racing career. The Junior race was 15 laps while the 20 lap Senior resulted in the now famous works Velocette 500 scoring another victory at an average speed of 61 miles per hour. GP Triumphs are starting to make their presence felt as pre- war machinery is put to the test. Len Perry riding the 1934 Velocette was triumphant in the Senior, while the Junior race win went to Sid Jensen, also Velocette mounted. Alf completed the race in 3hrs and 11 minutes and was one of the few riders who didn??t fall during the race. The AJS 7R??s were making their presence felt in this event, although the minor placing??s are dominated by Velocettes.
