Track Infos from Wiki :
Pukekohe Park is a horse racing, motor racing, and community events facility located in Pukekohe, New Zealand, approximately 40 kilometres (24.9 mi) south of the Auckland CBD, in the Auckland Region of the North Island. The venue, owned by Counties Racing Club Inc. is used seven days a week for horse training, driver training, motor sport events, cycling and various events and functions.
The Raceway was opened in 1963 as a permanent track, replacing Ardmore (an aerodrome) as the host circuit of the New Zealand Grand Prix. Annually for several years, the mainly European based Grand Prix drivers such as Stirling Moss, Graham Hill, Jim Clark and Jackie Stewart, would head downunder for a relaxed Tasman Series during the European winter.
For many years Pukekohe was the venue for New Zealand’s premier production car race, the Benson and Hedges 500 mile race (later 1000 km) featuring drivers such as Peter Brock, Dick Johnson and Jim Richards. In 1996 the New Zealand Mobil Sprints held one round in Pukekohe. Pukekohe Park Raceway also held an annual round of the popular Australian V8 Supercar race from 2001 to 2007. However, the New Zealand round moved to Hamilton Street Circuit in 2008. On 5 July 2012, it was announced that V8 Supercars would return to the circuit in 2013 as part of a 5-year deal with the circuit operators following a series of upgrades to accommodate for the series’ return.
The changes to the track included a series of corners before the hairpin turn, meaning safer, slower races. The upgrades also included a new race control building, timing building and corporate viewing facility opposite the main grandstand as well as the addition of overhead pedestrian bridges.
In the centre of the circuit there is a thoroughbred training centre, which dictates the use of the site as it owned by the Counties Racing Club Inc. The Club is host to 14 horse race meetings a year and is used six days a week as a stables and training facility.
SIM Version :
Neel Jani converted this track to GTR2 and made a full optimization and multitexturing.
I thank Hugh Jarse who allowed me to convert his nice track to GTR2.
I also thank the beta testers Thierrydu81, Boblebric and Surtees.
Thierrydu81 reworked the AIW to maximize the start grid up to 50 cars, he also created the animated flag marshals.
Boblebric created the videos for the TV screens from a true Australian V8 video of 2006.
Maximum Number of Cars : 51
Circuit was tested with DirectX 7, 8 and 9.
There are no known bugs so far.
change-log Version 1.1 :
– revised much textures
– corrected land and new textures

– addes some new objects
– reworked trees
For the update of the circuit and part of the new 3D objects, one or more texture(s) were created with images from CGTEXTURE.COM. These images can not be redistributed by default, please visit www.cgtextures.com for more informations.
Thanks to Ladose for testing, also thanks to Thierrydu81 for the reworked AIW file.
