Location - The speedway is located in the small township
of Kihikihi just south of Te Awamutu. From the main road look for
the smallest sign you've ever seen. It will be on your left
if travelling south. Go down this road until you get to the roadsign
pointing towards the Kihikihi Domain, turn right. The track is near the end of the
road and on your left.
Parking - Parking is normally located in the sports field next
to the track. Try to avoid this as there is ample parking on the
road which can lead to a quick getaway.
Premiere Meeting - Speed and Smash fest is the big end of season showdown.
The meeting often features a 4-way Stockcar Teams showdown and a big Saloon event.

Uniqueness - Kihikihi has transfered from a sleepy Sunday afternoon dust bowl to a
player in the Saturday night speedway market. With the move has come increased crowds and
far superior shows.
The track itself has a fair amount of banking and is plenty
wide to allow for quality racing. However it's not excessively wide and contact classes can and regularly
do put on a show. Kihikihi is perhaps the best track in New Zealand in terms of catering to the wide
variety of classes we race.
