|Description||The South Canterbury Car Club Inc was formed in 1947 running hillclimbs and paddock events.
The club progressed from this to running the Waimate 50 Street Race on the streets of Waimate until 1966.
In 1967 a street event was run in Timaru in the Craigie Avenue area.
Land was purchased at Falvey Road and a permanent 1.6km circuit built. The first event was held in November of that same year.
The club continued to develop this venue running club and National Championship racing. In 1988 it was decided that it was time to move up a level and increase the length of the circuit and develop it up to the international standard that it is today.
The circuit is now licenced to FIA category 3 which allows the club to run international events as well as National Championships including the NZ V8 Touring Cars and Super Truck Racing.
