Highlands Festival of Speed 2018

Highlands Motorsport Park, Corner SH6 & Sandflat Road, Cromwell 6th - 8th Apr '18

Three days of spectacular classic racing, some of the best to be seen in NZ!

The Highlands Festival of Speed is a weekend packed with some of the best modern classic racing you will see in New Zealand. Featuring the Pre 65 Racing, Mainland Muscle, Formula Libre, South Island Porsche, OSCA and the Highlands Sprint Series. This is a weekend of true blue Kiwi racing starring some of New Zealand's most well known racing legends.


The Highlands Festival of Speed returns to Cromwell this year on 6-8 April  2018. This year’s Festival will have some fantastic racing on the track with eight categories already confirmed.

This year we also want to cater for the newbies so we’re combining our exceptional action experiences with the racing to create an event for people to come along and see what motorsport is all about and even have the opportunity to experience the track in one of our We-Drive activities, at discounted prices for the weekend!

Entry is only $30 or a three day pass for $50, kids under 16 free. This includes entry into the Highlands Museum. At lunch time you will have a chance to book a ride in the Fast Dash Ferrari or Porsche GT3RS (limited numbers, book on the day) And of course, no visit to Highlands is complete without a race with your mates on our Go-Kart track! You can wander through the pits, have a yarn to the competitors or stroll through the Vehicle Show featuring over 200 vehicles on display. Vehicles are not limited to cars – we welcome caravans, boats, motorbikes – anything that fits the theme ‘Festival of Speed’.
