Track Infos from Wikipedia :
Mike Pero Motorsport Park, (often referred to as Ruapuna), is a permanent motor racing circuit owned and operated by the Canterbury Car Club Inc. on land leased from the Christchurch City Council. It is located at 107 Hasketts Road in Templeton, 13 kilometres (8.08 mi) west of Christchurch, New Zealand. It was opened as Ruapana Park in 1963, and between 2004 and 2013 was known as Powerbuilt Raceway at Ruapuna Park.
The track also features a drag strip, pit garages, racing school, speedway circuit and even a radio controlled car circuit. There are a number of configurations of the circuit with licences from FIA Grade 3 to National grades 1, 2 and 3.
The track surface is hot mix bitumen and runs for 3.33 kilometres (2.07 mi) in a counter-clockwise direction with many fast sweeping corners. It rewards smooth and tidy drivers. It supports six layouts, from the 1.31km “A Track” to the 3.44km “Grand Prix with dipper”. The track features on the motorsport racing simulation game Project CARS 2 as Ruapana Park.
The track was opened in November 1963. The circuit was a fairly simple sealed surface road course, at just a mile in length and comprising essentially a flat tri-oval with an extended main straight down to a hairpin bend. In 1976 the main straight was widened and a staging area added to allow drag racing to take place. The biggest change in the circuit’s history came in 1993 when it was extended to 3.3km, along with other renovations.
