Highlands Motorsport Park - Queenstown
Racing fans and car enthusiasts will find plenty to interest them at the Highlands Motorsport Park. Set against a backdrop of stunning mountains near Cromwell in the South Island the park is home to go karting, a skidpan, and Porsche GT3 racing cars.
Visitors can try their hand at go karting around a 650-metre track either by themselves or tandem with a co-driver. For those who want to go faster, there is the option of racing around the motorsport circuit with a professional driver in a Porsche GT3 race car that reach speeds of up to 200 kilometres per hour.
There is also the chance for visitors to test their own skills in a smaller race car with solo laps on offer after training with a professional.
A quieter experience can be found in the park's National Motorsport Museum, which pays homage to the cars and drivers involved in all kinds of racing with cars and memorabilia on display. Entrance to the museum also includes a game of mini golf on the course next door.
The Park's restaurant serves visitors who have worked up an appetite with lunch or dinner and a selection of local Central Otago wines.
The park has a number of garages available for lease by drivers who wish to keep cars for racing at the track and is available for hire for corporate or private events
