The New Taupo Racetrack complex, built by MIT Development Ltd, takes over the original site used for the existing Taupo Car Club. The current 1.4km circuit will undergo a upgrading and lengthening, to create a 3.5 km international circuit. The new complex will feature hospitality suites, pit garages, media centre and race control centre. The larger complex will also include a motorsport business park and driver and training centre. The international circuit is the focus of the NZ $12.5 million Taupo motorsport park.
The track includes three alternative track configurations, with two separate pit areas and start/finish lanes, to allow simultaneous use of two tracks. The international circuit will feature an 830 metre straight, which also doubles as a drag strip.
