Citing noise restrictions on ANZAC day.
Sad to see Pukey go, always good racing there.
Happy to see Hampton Downs in!

Maybe next year they can do both, either back to back or two weeks apart? An NZ tour...

It really is nit picking, but it isn't noise restrictions at all, and they aren't cited in the article.

It is a restriction on the use of motor vehicles on the circuit.

Interesting it will be to see what they do in 2021.

In all actuality, I am fine with the change. Pukey never set well with me ever since they put in that R-L-R complex at the end of the back straight. Just leads to more controversy when someone shortcuts it. I watched one NZST race at HD a few years back, on the net of course, and liked the joint.

And the Haka.... always a treat.

I read this article here: 3rd paragraph
https://www.supercars.com/news/championship/hampton-downs-in-for-2020-calendar/

Wonder why Supercars feel the need to say otherwise?
Bad planning?

Cool to have a new track on the calendar, but seriously sucks to lose Pukekohe. In my opinion it's one of the best racetracks that Supercars goes to. For 2021, why don't we have both?

Can't remember what happened in the past but I think it's a good idea to avoid Anzac day race meets because it takes away from the parades honouring the soldiers. The footy doesn't start until late arvo but any motorsport would have to start much earlier.

Hampton is the better track IMO, gonna be great seeing a Supercar run around there!

I do laugh at Seamer saying just 15 mins away. Itís around 25 mins from Pukekohe.

Iíd be happy with 2 tracks in NZ.

Why was Pukey abandoned in the past for those few years they raced in Hamilton? Did the Hamilton organizers just throw more dollars on the table?
