KIWIS TAKING ON THE WORLD
“Hampton Downs and Highlands are committed to ensuring the long term success of motorsport in New Zealand. Our vision is to develop future Kiwi world champions, by bringing together the young talent we have in this country and aligning them with the instructors, benefactors, and resources to give them the best chance of success.”
“Like everything we do – this academy is designed to be the best of the best and deliver on our promise. We want to build on the great work of the many generous benefactors and supporters of New Zealand motorsport over the years and develop a world-class reputation for producing Kiwi world champions and supporting them on their journey on the world stage.”
Chief Operating Officer, Hampton Downs and Highlands
“I’ve seen a few driving academies in my time and seen what’s worked and what doesn’t. Together with the support of Hampton Downs, Highlands, and Tony Quinn I’ve designed an academy experience that is tailored to New Zealand drivers and conditions.”
“We have star instructors with impressive resumes who know what it takes to race against the best in the world. The academy will be an ideal proving ground for drivers who want to learn the basics, fundamentals and advanced techniques to build a solid foundation for their future racing career. Even if you’re not shooting for the stars, the packages are designed to give as many kids as possible an opportunity to experience the thrill of driving a race car on a race track.”
