We are a family orientated outdoor karting club affiliated to Kartsport New Zealand and have been operating since the 1970's. After many years as one of NZ's shortest tracks, in 2009 it was extended by 400 odd metres to now give competitors a fast, exciting, and challenging course of around 765m.
Its super grippy, its undulating, its challenging, its FUN!
Whether you are new to karting or a current member please read through the various sections to find out about our club and track, local rules, technical information, events, newsletters, and other cool stuff!
Pinex Raceway is situated by the airfield at Amisfield, Tokoroa.
Heading South past Tokoroa: 2kms from the town centre (on SH 1) turn left onto Moffatt Road. Continue straight up to the end of that road where a big arrow will direct you to the right. Follow this road right to the end, and then continue straight ahead onto the little unsealed road.
2013 New concrete pit sites, new tech shed...nearly there!
