The NZ Advanced Driving Centre Manawatu is based at the Manfeild - Circuit Chris Amon which is situated on the southern outskirts of Feilding
(16km from Palmerston North)

Manfeild - Circuit Chris Amon is an expansive and extensive 5km driving facility, which also hosts the New Zealand Grand Prix race meeting each year in early February on its main 3km Grand Prix circuit.  

It is also a multi-purpose events complex which boasts an expansive Stadium Complex and hosts conferences, agricultural field days, aviation displays and equestrian events.

Manfeild - Circuit Chris Amon is, in our opinion, the country's premier driver training facility and is our principal central and lower North Island driver training facility.

NZ Advanced Driver Training exclusively utilises its own air-conditioned corporate suite area, on the Top Floor of the 3-storey Control Tower Building above the trackside pits as our driver training base.
There are numerous food outlets within 3 minutes drive of this venue.  
On-site catering is available by prior arrangement for larger corporate groups or special events.

There is a selection of motels in Feilding and a range of accommodation available in Palmerston North.
Whenever the NZ Advanced Driver Training team are in the Manawatu, they prefer and choose to stay exclusively at the Raceway Court Motel in Feilding and/or Bentleys Motor Inn in Palmerston North.
