HIGHLANDS RIDE: A visit Highlands Motorsport Park NZ will be one of the highlights at this world class facility. We are very fortunate that for $35 per single, $50 with pillion you get to 1) ride TWO complete laps of the track under CONTROLLED conditions, 2) visit the Motorsport Museum and 3) have a beer. This will occur from 5:00pm to 6:30pm on the evening of Tuesday 31st January. If you want to go Go-Karting, we suggest you book a time before 5:00 by visiting and using their online booking facility. Riding a motorcycle around Highlands is exclusive to Bike Week and not normally permitted.
