Cruising for hope


Hampton Downs and Downtime Entertainment have combined to create Cruising for Hope, a unique fundraising event where automotive enthusiasts will come together to raise money for the Key to Life Charity, championed by New Zealander of the Year Mike King. The one-day event, where track cruise, show n shine and skidpan activities will be the order of the day, will take place at Hampton Downs on Saturday October 26th.

“If you’re a petrol head and want to race around NZ’s number one circuit, sorry Pukekohe, Hampton Downs is where it’s at,” “While you are there you will be raising awareness around mental health which is obviously great news for us. So pull out your rags, start sniffing your petrol, put your pedal to the metal. See you at Hampton Downs on October 26th.”
