A day out at Te Puke racetrack

On Sunday afternoon we drove out to the Te Puke racetrack, which is about 25 minutes out of Tauranga just before Te Puke township (pronounced Tee pookee). My stepdaughter has been taking part in racing her go kart for about 7 years with her mother and since we have had my two teenagers with us over the school holidays we thought it would be a fun afternoon. We were right!

We were able to watch her racing plus the junior and senior section - I think each grade drove about 15 rounds each, I captures these shots out of several dozen that I was able to take. Such a fun day with lots of other petrol heads...

  1. It sounds like a fun day and plenty to keep the young ones interested.I'm sure they enjoyed their holidays with you!

  2. I am so in, although I've never raced one of these before.

  3. That looks like a lot of fun indeed.

  4. Great action shots. And a great activity for the young - and young at heart! :)

  5. Go cart racing is fun to watch. The local go cart racing up here closed down last year.

  6. this looks like fun. Something I would love to try :)
