Head on down to Huka Lodge for a high-speed weekend dedicated to exhilarating and exciting times behind the wheel. Taupo’s purpose-built Motorsport Park offers the perfect opportunity to put a car through its paces. Strap in, and feel the power of a V8 race car hit the track for a motorsport experience to remember. Move on to a single seater race car and experience what it is like to drive a Formula 1 or an IndyCar.

Moving from off-road to on-road, more driving thrills are on offer, if you would like to test drive the glamorous Aston Martin Vantage and DB11 sports cars during your stay.

Founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford, Aston Martin is acknowledged as an iconic global brand synonymous with style, luxury, performance and exclusivity. The British marque fuses the latest technology, time honoured craftsmanship and graceful styling to produce a range of critically acclaimed sports cars. After celebrating its 100th birthday in 2013, Aston Martin is looking firmly forward to its next century of “Power, Beauty and Soul".

Relaxing in-room spa treatments are available if you or your partner who chooses not to take up the Formula Challenge.

A boutique Gin & Tonic clinic in the early evening will introduce you to some of the exciting new botannical styles of gin, with canapés to complement these. This leads on to a fabulous five-course gourmet dinner by Executive Chef, Paul Froggatt and his team.
