Location - Huntly Speedway is located a couple of kilometres
off State Highway 1 just north of Huntly. The turnoff is well
signposted. Once off the highway there will hopefully be a number
of other cars to follow! If there isn't, follow the turnoff road down
towards the mine, turning left just before the mine entrance. Follow
this road around to the track.
Parking - A sting in the tail when you arrive to the
track. A $2 charge is the norm for parking your car. People will direct
you where to park. Other options are limited though there are a few roadside
spots between the public entrance and the competitor entrance.
Premiere Meeting - The arrival of the V8 Supercar round in
Hamilton sporned the premiere meeting of Huntly's season - Speedfest.
Advertised as the best of the best this meeting regularly attracts
competitors from the South Island and everywhere in between. The meeting
was originally held on a Thursday but now finds itself held on a Saturday
Also worth attending - The 8-team Stockcar Teams meeting in
mid-November has developed a reputation as one of the more action
packed teams meetings on the calendar. Huntly is a great teams racing
track and any opportunity to watch a teams race here should not be
Best spot to sit - Spectator terracing suffers from a lack
of height. Wooden benches are supplied but bring a pillow or better
still bring a deck chair and sit up the back behind the wooden benches.
Classes run - Youth Ministocks, Stockcars, Superstocks, Production
Saloons, Saloons, Super Saloons, Midgets, Modifieds.
Uniqueness - Huntly is perhaps the most versatile track in the
country. Huntly is capable of hosting and showcasing the best that
any class has to offer. Given the variety of classes on offer thats
a very impressive thing to be saying. The trickiest part of the
track is normally getting into turn one.
