Description

Hamilton created history on 19-20 April 2008 by hosting New Zealand's inaugural Australian V8 Supercars street race. The decision to locate the 3.4 km track in the heart of the central business district makes the Hamilton 400, arguably, the most genuine street circuit on the V8 Supercar calendar. The Hamilton circuit is also the most spectacular, with eight turns, speeds topping 240 kmph and, importantly, three distinct overtaking opportunities - the key to a successful race. This book is a celebration of the inaugural Hamilton 400 event and of motorsport in general. Text includes background information, the major races and winners, the Ford vs Holden debate, results, vehicle specs and a map of the circuit. It's jam-packed full of excellent photographs of all the thrills and spills, the spectators, the girls - but most of all, the cars in all their glory.show more
