Kihikihi Speedway



Last Visited - 2017

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. It's near the end of the road and on your right.


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. Wherever you park save some money for a car wash. Kihikihi runs daytime meetings and it will get dusty.


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.


Also worth attending - When they get the track right Midgets are very good to watch. Try and get along when the Midget Car Series visits town or the Rosetown Midget 30 lapper. The King Country champs for a variety of classes can be worthwhile if a good fields presents.


Best spot to sit - Give the back straight a miss. The banking does not make for good viewing, infact depending on where you sit your view may be restricted to watching wings and fins go by. High up in turn 3 is the pick of the spots for a beautiful view of the entire track.


Classes run - Youth Ministocks, Stockcars, Superstocks, Streetstocks, Solo's, Sidecars, Minisprints, Midgets, Six Shooters, Production Saloons, Saloons.


Uniqueness - After an exciting Saturday night of speedway a nice Sunday afternoon on the bank at Kihikihi can be a most enjoyable experience. In recent times Kihikihi has upped the anti which in my opinion has isolated the niche market the speedway created for itself.

The track itself has a fair amount of banking and is plenty wide to allow for quality racing. It does have a solo track on the infield which fits just inside the main track.
