City/Town - Greymouth, South Island, New Zealand

Location - The track is located handy to central Greymouth. Take the road from Greymouth
that would ordinarily take you to Westport. But once you cross the bridge instead of turning
right to Westport, turn left to the speedway track. The road you need to be on runs parallel to this
road on your left so take any of the 5ish sidestreets and head down to the ocean. The track is at
the end of this road.
Parking - Parking consists of on road and field options. The track does not attract big
crowds so parking shouldn't be much of an issue.
Premiere Meeting - The King of the Coast is a late season meeting that brings
together drivers from all over the South Island. Fields are typically full or close to it and
is the one time of year you can see premiere speedway talent in Greymouth.
Also worth attending - The local stockcar team are the Greymouth Grizzlies and they do host
the odd teams race. The most likely opposition are Nelson's Tasman Thunder.
Best spot to sit - The track is most surrounded by terraces which allow a range of
viewpoints. When Percy visited the back straight was the spot of choice as it was sheltered from
the wind which was wipping up the river behind the front straight.
Classes run - Stockcars, Streetstocks, Youth Ministocks, Adult Ministocks, Production
Saloons, Modifieds, TQ's
Uniqueness - If Wanganui is the Oval by the Ocean then Greenstone Park is the Oval in the
Ocean. The Ocean sits behind turns 3 & 4 and at times the waves are visibly higher than the track
surface. Though it has no lights and runs exclusively during the daytime, the track has an excellent
reputation for track preparation. It is also the perfect size for New Zealand Speedway and is one
of the few tracks that caters equally well to Modifieds and Stockcars.
