Formula Challenge

with Aston Martin

Saturday, 25 July 2020

Presented once more, by popular request, our thrilling motorsport weekend at Huka Lodge. So, head down to Taupo for another series of adrenalin-filled, high speed thrills behind the wheel.

Taupo’s Motorsport Park, home of the Formula Challenge experience is where you face the dilemma of choosing between a V8 race-ready saloon car or a single-seater racing car for some exiting laps.

Which ever race car you choose, your time on the track promises to be both exhilarating and exciting. Even more so, when you sit in the passenger seat of an Aston Martin GT4 race car, for a few ‘hot laps’.

The Aston Martin excitement continues with the latest Vantage, DB11 and DBS Superleggera models, all available to test drive. Once behind the wheel, you will experience just why this iconic luxury British sports car enjoys such an unrivalled reputation.

Back at the Lodge, relax and unwind with a tutored cocktail clinic with Seedlip Drinks at the Alan Pye Cottage, Aston Martin’s HQ. This will be followed by a superb five-course gourmet dinner at the Main Lodge. 

Seedlip Drinks has taken the world by storm, with their distilled-non-alcoholic spirits, blended and bottled in England. Served in over 250 Michelin-starred restaurants, the world’s best cocktail bars, and also at Huka Lodge – explore the world of Seedlip Drinks.

The Seedlip Drinks cocktail clinic will be followed by a fabulous five-course dinner back at the main Lodge, presented by Executive Chef, Paul Froggatt.

For those who choose not to take up the Formula Challenge we offer relaxing, in-suite spa treatments.

Cost for a one-night stay in a Junior Lodge Suite, on a double/twin occupancy basis, incl. all listed activities = NZ$1,400.00 + GST per person, per night.
