Location - Huntly Speedway is located a couple of kilometres off State Highway 1 just north of Huntly. If approaching from the north take the Huntly off ramp. Just before you get to the township itself, take a left turn towards the coal mine. There is normally a large sign for the speedway at this corner. Drive to the coal mine and just before you enter the mine turn left. Follow this road to the track. If approaching from the south, you're probably best to exit the highway at Taupiri and make your way through Huntly, turning right when you exit Huntly.

Parking - A sting in the tail when you arrive to the track. A $2 charge is the norm for parking your car. People will direct you where to park. Other options are limited though there are a few roadside spots between the public entrance and the competitor entrance. For large meetings the club has a good relationship with nearby property owners and you might end up there.

Premiere Meeting - Since the demise of the Supercars round in Hamilton, Speedfest has fallen off the schedule. These days the Superstock Teams meeting in November could be considered the best show on the annual calendar.

Also worth attending - Maybe a Waikato Superstock title? The annual calendar could do with another marquee event or two.

Best spot to sit - Spectator terracing suffers from a lack of height. Wooden benches are supplied but bring some cushioning for your posterior. There are limited spots to erect a deck chair. I suggest you leave them at home.

Classes run - Youth Ministocks, Stockcars, Superstocks, Production Saloons, Saloons, Super Saloons, Modifieds.

Uniqueness - Huntly is a versatile track and is capable of hosting and showcasing the best that any class has to offer if track conditions permit. The trickiest part of the track is normally getting into turn one. The track is symmetrical and lacks any major banking.
