    It all started with special interest groups at Meremere and snowballed from there.

    I know this is a little off topic, but this has been in the councils long term plan since 2008, but with the recent changes, is this likely to get To happen shortly or will it continue to remain only part of the long term plan for longer still?

    Hah! With all the council restructures and what not going on, tight money etc, who knows what will happen. I mean, we lost the REAL baypark in 1995 because people thought it was a great idea to create land for housing on the back straight. Then sell houses to people who complain about it!!

    Even now the new Baypark gets consistent noise complaints, and huge fines for things such as running 30seconds past there 11pm noise curfew. I work in such a place to know the inside goss, wink wink nudge nudge

    I was under the impression the Tauranga track was already under way at some big recreational area you guys have in the middle of a forest somewhere. There's also a scale railway track out there too or something. TAC? TAPC? There's an acronym for it everyone throws around. The only issue I'm aware of was the railway guys wanted to encroach on the land set aside for the strip but I haven't heard anything since. There's a few articles on your local paper's website.

    Yeah the TECT park, its supposed to be like 1650ha of BMX track, motocross track, bush walks, and there are plans for 4x4 track, shooting range, im sure the drag strip and burnout pad were in teh original plan, and there was a hint the the drag strip would become part of a small circuit, however as far I know there hasnt been any work started on the strip / circuit yet. As far as I know, and correct me if I am wrong, but construction of the park started in 2007, and thy had plans up to 2011, but I am not sure any more information has been released since then.

    Just had a look on the website Homepage for TECT All Terrain Park | Welcome to Bay of Plenty’s outdoor adventure playground and didnt notice any mention of the drag strip etc.
