Covid-19 Information & Update for Drive Supercars

## Updated December 10th

Dear Customers, Hampton Downs Motorsport Park has recently implemented the requirement to show a vaccine pass upon entry. We (Drive Supercars) believe there are alternative ways to ensure a safe environment without the need to exclude anyone, however customers attending track experiences will be subject to Hampton Downs policy. Drive Supercars is committed to serving all customers and we've just released an amazing suite of Road Trips which will complement our track experiences and be available to everyone.

##Updated 18th November 2021

Dear Customers,

I hope this email finds you well during these challenging times....As you are likely aware, the Auckland border is to open on December 15th. After much consideration we will unfortunately have to postpone our Drive Day scheduled for December 16th as being so close we just don't have sufficient time (given the forecast gridlock) to bring together the logistics of the Drive Day preparations. We have however worked with Hampton Downs to secure additional dates in early 2022 and have added availability on January 20th, February 17th, March 10th and March 24th.

VOUCHERS
You don't have to worry about your expiry date, you'll be able to book for any available date even if it falls after your expiry. Please follow the link below to select a new date and time.

An absolutely fantastic day. Right from the start when I was welcomed by the lady behind the desk I knew that I was going to have a fun day and a fun day I surely did. All staff were fantastic and all were made to feel part of the day. Great to meet the head person and have a chat. Staff well done, cars were great and well kept, instructors fantastic, coffee great and the jet airplane lollies my favorite. 10/10 guys

5 / 5

Had a awesome afternoon driving the Ferrari 430 then hot laps in the Mitsi Evo. I was fortunate to have 5 laps in the Ferrari then 2 Hot laps as one of our team couldn't make the day so felt very lucky. The staff at Drive Super Cars were awesome, right from the booking, the briefing , explaining the drive and all instruction was great and very helpful. Would defiantly recommend to anyone that is thinking of doing it.

Key Points
  • Your road trip begins with an overview of the day along with an in-car familiarisation.
  • You'll be in car for approximately 51km's

The Experience

Oh the choices…what a life when you get to choose between driving a Lamborghini, Ferrari or an Aston Martin!

Would you go for the aerodynamic lines of the convertible Ferrari F430 Spyder, the Aston Martin's style & sophistication, or the raw V12 power of the Lamborghini?
Yes – the choice is yours!

You'll take the wheel of your favourite supercar for a lakeside roadie. We’ll start with an introduction and an overview of the day and where we’ll be heading. You’ll then recieve a personalised in car familiarisation to make sure you’re comfortable and ready to go.

With a two way radio onboard you’ll be able to make contact with your guide in the lead car at any point. We’ll leave Hampton Downs Apartments in convoy and start cruising south along the motorway where you’ll get an introduction to the amazing symphony that radiates from these masterpieces of automotive engineering.

As we leave the motorway and head toward Te Kauwhata you’ll be able to relax into the country atmosphere and the type of environment these vehicles thrive within. A cruise through the township never fails to have every head turn as you instantly become a local celebrity!

From Te Kauwhata we wind our way alongside Lake Waikere where the water becomes a picturesque backdrop to the easy rolling Waikato back roads.

Stopping lakeside for a mini photoshoot gives everyone the opportunity to capture their next winning profile pic and some enviable bragging rights. You’ll also have a chance to compare experiences with others on the roadie before swapping seats with your passenger if you've chosen to share the driving .

As we begin our homeward leg, it’s a chance to savour the unique experience that is cruising on NZ roads with likeminded people in a convoy of supercars...just magic!


Location
Please meet us outside Hampton Downs Apartments (Hulme Block), Hampton Downs Road, Meremere
