I do sometimes get blog hits from Invercargill, so it's time I give my New Zealand folk some John's Blog Space love!
^ from: orix.co.nz - a track map of Teretonga Park in Invercargill, New Zealand.
Teretonga Park, as I mentioned, is fairly short while also being quite a handful. The loop is a very long sweeping left. You need to be ready to quickly attack Castrol after the loop. A set of Esses follow leading up to the tricky hairpin. A long straight after the Hairpin is broken up by a left-hand kink called Brickyard. The only thing separating you from the Start/Finish line is the super-slow GWD Elbow. The front stretch awaits you then, followed by another 1.63 miles of racing goodness in far southern New Zealand! I have to imagine with this track being so far south in the Southern Hemisphere, it has to be pretty cold.
Here is a video lap around this course:
Track Times.The all-time lap record around Teretonga Park was set back in 1998 by a Formula Holden race car. Greg Murphy clocked a lap time of 0.51.208 around Teretonga Park in a Formula Holden Reynard 92D back in 1998. Most relatively fast cars should have no problem lapping this course at or just below one minute.
