Hamilton Street Circuit

Hamilton Street Circuit is a temporary street circuit in Hamilton, New Zealand as part of the V8 Supercars championship. The 2008 event from 18 to 20 April was known as the Hamilton 400. The Hamilton 400 is a contest between Ford and Holden and is a part of the Australian V8 Supercar series. On Wednesday, 28 October 2009, New Zealand Herald reported that New Zealand's largest group of independent trade building supply merchants, ITM, will sponsor the race from 2010 to 2012. The event will be renamed as ITM 400.

On 14 December 2010, The New Zealand Herald reported that Julie Hardaker, the newly elected Mayor of Hamilton, and some councilors appointed an independent auditor to audit the cost of the race. The figures released on 14 December suggested that a NZ$3.5m cost to change the event to a different promoter (the original promoter, Caleta Streetrace Management, was collapsed in 2010), NZ$5.1m for operational costs and NZ$20.3m for set-up costs. The sum (NZ$27.4 million) did not include "commercially confidential" amounts such as event sponsorship payments.

The cost to run the V8 Supercar event was eventually deemed too great and the final V8 Supercar race was held on April 22, 2012; it was won by Mark Winterbottom.

Famous quotes containing the words circuit, hamilton and/or street:

    Within the circuit of this plodding life
    There enter moments of an azure hue,
    Untarnished fair as is the violet
    Or anemone, when the spring strews them
    By some meandering rivulet, which make
    The best philosophy untrue that aims
    But to console man for his grievances.
    I have remembered when the winter came,
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Word’s gane to the kitchen,
    And word’s gane to the ha’,
    That Marie Hamilton gangs wi’ bairn
    To the hichest Stewart of a’.
    —Unknown. Mary Hamilton (l. 1–4)

    Women are the people who are going to relieve us from all this oppression and depression. The rent boycott that is happening in Soweto now is alive because of the women. It is the women who are on the street committees educating the people to stand up and protect each other.
    Nontsikelelo Albertina Sisulu (b. 1919)
