The Hampton Downs Motorsport Park is situated in rural northern Waikato (about halfway between Auckland and Hamilton on the Waikato Expressway), New Zealand near the Meremere drag strip and the dirt track club.

Hampton Downs is now arguably the most technically advanced race circuit in the world. The track has a very smooth surface, and a mix of blind bends and crests which make it a challenging circuit for drivers.
