When you’ve got this many ‘legends of speed’ on your doorstep, an hour south of Auckland city, at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, you’d be a sucker if you didn’t check it out. Legends of Speed, held April 3, was an action-packed day of racing, including the BMW Racing Series, Historic Muscle Cars, the quirky Alfa Trofeo Series, Historic Sports Sedans, and the Formula Fords of yesteryear. Despite the terrible weather, or should we say slippery weather, racing was exciting, with every class and series bringing their own unique element to the tarmac. 

If you didn’t make it along, sit back, relax, and enjoy this gallery that the talented Matt Smith photographed.
