THE news that Pukekohe will close to motorsport in early 2023 has been met with plenty of sadness from fans across Australia and New Zealand.

The circuit has hosted what is now known as the Repco Supercars Championship since 2001 and will again host the championship this September in what is shaping up to be the category’s farewell to the venue.

The V8 Sleuth team has spent some time in our extensive photo archive, enjoy this look back at some great shots from Supercars at Pukekohe.

V8 Sleuth strives to both preserve and celebrate Australian motorsport’s rich history, from tracking and tracing the race-by-race histories and changing ownership of individual cars, to capturing and retelling the stories of the people who made our sport what it is today.
