      An excellent day out!
      Excellent time had by all the family. Finally got a nice dry day for our car racing. The staff are so friendly and the driver was amazing! Highly recommend. My husband did the Radical U drive and the Ferrari for his 50th birthday and the family went in the Taxi.

      Surfing in a Ferrari, the best holiday experience
      Great super fast lap around the track, the speed on the straights was very exciting and on the corners terrifying! Thanks Damon for a great ride in a beautiful Ferrari. Also loved the loos with a view, especially the royal suite with red velvet chaise longue and chandelier and window onto the track - best loos ever!

      A must do and see while on the region. Highly recommended. Plenty for everyone to do and see. Museum / car display spectacular along with the loos with a view.

      Never to old this one.
      What a brilliant experience, my driver gave a full informative description of the history from the start. The ride in the Porsche SUV was something. Many thanks Mr Quinn

      Unforgettable driving experience
      I learned about Highlands by chance while in the middle of a month long trip to NZ. A lifelong motorsports fan, I could not pass up the chance to drive the Radical sports racer on a genuine racetrack. I was blown away at the level of presentation, preparation and professionalism I encountered. Needless to say driving the Radical on the "C" course with some excellent pro guidance was unforgettable. Can't recommend this experience highly enough. Simply must do it if you have the chance!

      Really enjoyed this
      An amazing experience, the friendly and professional staff were great to deal with and the instructor was supportive and encouraged a bit of a push outside the comfort zone. The car was great to drive, grippy and felt very safe in all areas. Being an open cockpit was very cool as you could feel the helmet start to bobble at top speed. Will definitely do this again.

      Worth every cent
      Went out today for the hot lap in the Ferrari, and what a hot lap. Breanne was amazing taking me and my wife for a lap each, which were the best Xmas gifts ever. So then we treated ourselves to the Porsche electric launch experience. Damon got us from 0 to 100km in 2.4 sec. The rest of the staff were amazing from check in to the cafe. Some might say it's expensive but you don't have to fuel it, insure it,or service it , so good value all round.

      What an amazing experience
      That was so much fun. After doing a couple of karting races I decided to go for the big one, the Radical. That's by far the best car I've ever driven. Tutored by a fab pro driver, I felt in really capable hands, even urging me to go faster! I'm so amazingly chuffed to have had the opportunity to do this. A++++

      Lots of fun on a short track
      The mustang is a bit of a pig but still fun trying out a new track. Great facility with lots to do or just sit and watch from the cafe. Excellent instructor. Go for the extra laps if you can as 7 is barely enough to get up to speed.

      What a credit to Tony Quinn
      The whole setup exceeded expectations. The museum, Wall of Fame, and virtual reality exhibitions are world-class and tell a wonderful story of NZ motor sport and our motor sport legends. We did two laps in the Ferrari with Damon which was an experience not to be forgotten. This facility is a credit to Tony Quinn and his team. We were also lucky to see Gisbergen and Stanaways' 2023 Bathurst-winning Chevy arrive and be put on display.

      Memorable day for the whole family
      I'm certainly not a petrol-head but I hugely enjoyed a family day here to celebrate a birthday. Great fun on the go-karts on a large, well-designed track but the highlight for the half-dozen of us who did it was the Ferrari ride around the big track. Affable and skilled driver and at 225kms per hour top speed certainly a memorable experience. And a sensible cafe with good views over the track was a plus. Throw in the museum and the famous loos and a a great time was had by all.

      Loo with a view!
      We visited here specifically to see the outlandish loos. Never seen anything like it and definitely worth a visit. It is called THE LOO WITH A VIEW. Very quirky

      Great fun for all
      Looking for excitement in the area & came across Highland Motorsport park. My wife & I did the GoCart 2x race special & had a blast. Staff are friendly & helpful & down to earth. Carts are great & great track layout. Great cafe ( not overly priced) & museum. P.s Don’t forget to check out the toilet block 😉 Would highly recommend Highlands Motorsport park for all ages. Get after it…..!!!

      The most thrilling taxi ride ever!
      We dropped in here on a quiet Wednesday afternoon, not really knowing what to expect. We were greeted warmly and recommended the “taxi” ride for our family of 4. Shortly after Steve turned up in the taxi - a Porsche Cayenne - and off we went with our F1 mad daughter in the front passenger seat, ready to lap it up (pun intended). Steve took us on a slow lap of the park, providing heaps of information about the history, design & use of Highlands. Then after setting up our daughter’s phone to record everything, it was time for our second lap, putting the Porsche through its paces. It was absolutely thrilling, going at close to 200kms an hour, screeching around corners and almost launching over the bridge. So much fun, and Steve was a fantastic driver - very funny but also so professional- we definitely felt safe in his hands. After that excitement we took a look through the museum and had some afternoon tea overlooking the track. The cheese rolls were the best we’d tried in all of Southland. A visit to Highlands is not complete until you visit the loos with a view. The urinals have to be seen to be believed! Would highly recommend a visit to Highlands and jumping in one of their taxis!

      A must for all car lovers!
      We stumbled across highlands on our way through Cromwell. My husband is a huge car lover, and there was no way we weren't stopping! He had a great time on the go carts. This activity wasn't badly priced for around 15 mins on track time. It was super hot on the day, so that was long enough for him! After the race, we walked the car museum, and for the Ford loving motor head, my husband is, this was the ultimate finish to a great day. The museum was full of so many amazing race cars and so much history. There were also interactive things to do as well, which added another level of fun to the experience. Don't forget to check out the 'loo with a view' that was so cool! Different loos with different themes. And a glass panel right in front of you, well you take a tinkle! All in all a good experience.

    Very fun afternoon out! Racing around on the Go Karts with a very competitive family was a lot of fun. Safety was on point and the facilities were lovely and clean. It was a beautiful day so we all enjoyed sitting in the outdoor cafe area watching the cars go around while enjoying a drink with a view. Another peculiar highlight was the trip to the ‘loo with a view’ which had a number of funny themed bathrooms! The crew at the GoKarting area could have been a little more enthusiastic and upbeat but the crew at the main check in desk and cafe more than made up for that as they were lovely!

    Fantastic experience, we loved every minute of it. The staff were amazing. We did go karts, drove the mustang, supercar laps and the taycan takeoff. What a great adrenaline rush, from a fantastic venue and team. Would go back again and again.

    What a well run Go Kart experience!
    The staff are so incredible with their knowledge, and efficiency!
    We loved our race! And believe we will return next time we are here. Add this to your must do. We also did the Super car Fast Dash and museum. And enjoyed the cafe. Make sure you talk to the friendly staff, they are super helpful with figuring out the best deal. Money well spent with our adrenaline hit!

    What a fantastic day!
    The Go-Karts were so much fun and a great personal buzz after watching my partner on his Radical U-Drive experience.

    The staff were amazing from the front desk and cafe to the pros with the vehicles.
