I'm interested in peoples thoughts on the parking options at & around the track for this event. General discussion is what the thread is about & not negative comments please. I got to the track quite late on Saturday night & know I should have been there earlier as I couldn't find any parking close to the track. I had some gear on the back of my ute so I didn't feel happy about leaving my ute to far from the track so proceeded to head home 4hrs away. A question I would like to ask is, In the past years gone by the Pits were extended into the Grassed Sporting area behind the back straight (directly opposite the Grandstand). If this option was used again to create more Pit area for the Race competitors & then for an Additional Spectator parking area charged at $5 per vehicle per night wouldn't this create a more effecient parking option for everyone. The $5 parking fee per vehicle per night could go towards the costs to lease that area for the two nights parking if of course there is an option to lease it. Hopefully this question will be answered in a good manner by someone who knows for sure any reasons why or why not that grassed area can or can't be used. Palmerston North Speedway & Western Springs have a simular option with parking at there big events behind the grandstand which seems to work really well. If Waikaraka Park continues its progress upwards as it is doing maybe securing some form of a permanent lease option on that area wouldn't be a silly idea to cover any future increase in Competitor & Spectator numbers. This question may have been asked & answered before who knows but I think it warrants further discussion. Thanks for your time & look forward to your comments.
