    Motorcycle circuit for lease

    For lease : Mt Wellington Kart track


    Home of Auckland Bucket racing. If ever there was a grass roots base for future champions, it is here. Andrew Stroud went from here to Daytona on the Britten. Avalon Biddle went from here to European championships and NZ 600 championship this year. Dan Mettam did the same. So did Jaden Hassan. Scott Dixon went from here to IndyCar champion 5 times . They all started here.


    In September 2018, Auckland council closed the track. Their aim, to redevelop the site and lease it to a commercial business. No consultation. No future plan except the distant promise of a new track at Colin Dale Park. Bucket racing is finished in Auckland and with it the future stars of our sport . An outrageous act against our sport. This is the only place in Auckland we can race. Imagine if it were the last Rugby field.


    The track remains in usable condition. We need your help to get it back. Join our campaign https://www.facebook.com/groups/Save...announcements/

    I used to ride my trail bike around that track many years ago back when the land to the north of Mt Wellington was a motocross park!

    You can only conclude that Auckland council hates motorsport and is determined to eliminate it from the city. I do wonder how long Supercars will stay at Puke.

    Just a side note - Its $US 55000 for a track day hire at COTA , includes facilites,marshalls, ambo etc.

    Good luck on keeping hold of your wee track.

    Be interested to hear the back story on how this scum council ended up with this piece of dirt
