Must See
Nov 2021
Another stopover on our way to Queenstown. Plenty to see in the museum. Couldn't go on the track as it was booked for a private function. School group were on the go karts. It was great sitting having lunch and watching the porsche. lamborghini and masserati racing around the track.

Just WOW
Oct 2021
WOW - just WOW. We actually did two different rides, first the TAXI (don't be fooled by the name) where both of us sat in the Mustang and took two laps (with a driver - definitely not a self-drive experience!) who does one lap slow and tells you about the place, then one at speed (180km)...and I thought that couldn't get much better. Then it did - the lap in the Ferrari at about 220km - and a week later I'm still buzzing. If you do either of these and don't have the biggest smile on your face, check you still have a pulse! $300 gone in 15 minutes, and we'd do it again in a heart beat. YOLO, this was just so much fun.
