About Central Motor Speedway Otago



Heavy Trax Hire Central Motor Speedway (also called Cromwell Speedway) is the Central Otago-Southern Lakes centre of high speed, adrenalin-pumping dirt track action. Big horsepower sprintcars, super saloons, saloons and loads more. Big name local, regional and national drivers. Big calendar of mostly Saturday night racing from October through to April. But what isn't big, is the entry cost to this natural amphitheatre where spectators get all-of-track track viewing from in their vehicles or sitting on grassed banks.

The Fastest Family Show On Earth
Just through the Gibbston Valley/Kawarau Gorge from Queenstown and Arrowtown, less than half an hour from Wanaka, only a short drive from Alexandra and Clyde, and on the outskirts of Cromwell, Central Motor Speedway is in Sandflat Road, off State Highway 6. One of only three Division 1 speedway tracks in the southern region, Central Motor Speedway is now even easier to find, being right nextdoor to Highlands Motorsport Park. Together we're contributing to making Cromwell 'motorsport central!'

Central Motor Speedway is a not-for-profit community asset and as such we take our community responsibilities seriously. Part of this is to create a safe, family entertainment environment and to actively encourage involvement and participation by the region's youth and young adults. We also provide financial donations to community groups/clubs through their helping us on race days.

Sponsors are crucial to enabling us to bring you the 'Fastest Family Show on Earth'. Our sincere appreciation goes to Heavy Trax Hire for agreeing to be main sponsor for a third season in a row. We also thank all businesses who have already or are intending to become gate, meeting and track side sponsors for the 2017/18 season.
