Welcome to Waharoa Speedways Official webpage. Waharoa Speedway first originated back in 1989 over 25 years ago to this day. We are now a well known Speedway in the Waikato of New Zealand which encourage all cars and classes to come out for a race at our Speedway. Waharoa Speedway is a family orientated speedway track solemnly based around having fun and enjoying yourself. We take pride in our hard work towards the track and the racers that race on it. We encourage family and friends, new members or old, and anyone in between to come and have a great day out at Waharoa Speedway on a Sunday afternoon. We have great looked after facilities for our members and a canteen to keep our members feed and watered to keep them going for the day. We have a vast variety of food up at the canteen which you can find in the cost page, from burgers to ice cold drinks.
We currently run 4 main classes at Waharoa Speedway. They are Mini-stocks, Fender Benders, Production Saloons and B Saloons. We encourage all other classes to come out and join us also such as having a few stock-cars, 1/4 midgets, 6 Shooters, saloon cars and even sprint-cars which come out to race at our amazing track.
We are currently undergoing the process of preparing our track for a track extension which will be big enough to have 3 saloon cars wide on each corner. This extension will make a massive impact upon our track in future years as we will be able to run more cars on the track and larger car classes such as the stock-cars, saloons and sprint-cars permanently. This takes alot of time and hard work to prepare the track for the future plans on extension and we do encourage anyone who is willing to sponsor our track to help with the cost or preparation to the track.
Safety is a huge part of our track. We have full fire crew on the track at all times for the safety of the drivers with full fireproof overalls and fire extinguishers on each end of the track and center encase of an emergency. We have our own ambulance officer with our very own emergency hut for the safety of our drivers encase of a serious emergency. We have our very own safety vehicle and water truck to prepare the track during the meeting to keep the track always raceable.
We encourage everyone to come and watch or race at Waharoa Speedway for a great family orientated day which is fun for everyone, young or old.
As of the end of our 2015-16 season we have started working on our Speedway Track Extensions for next season. We currently have a Track Extensions Page that you can view with all the major detail on it all and how far we have progressed. Below we have a small slideshow of a few images taken of our latest progress. We plan to have this all completed by the start of our new 2016-17 season for all our new and current members to start racing on. We are currently bringing in Clay for our new base for the track with 100’s of truck loads being brought in. The track requires a lot of hard work in this preparation so we would like to thank everyone who is part of the committee as well as our Patron of the club, Gary Winton and our President, Marcus Bullen for spending a lot of their time and going out of their way to make it all happen. Without all our committee members, track staff and members of Waharoa Speedway, our track extensions wouldn’t be going through and we wouldn’t be having a new track to race on this up coming season.
