Following on from their success at building the BMX track for the BMX World Championships 2012 in Birmingham UK, Clark & Kent Contractors were invited by Bike New Zealand to repeat the success overseas.
In 2013, Bike New Zealand selected Clark & Kent as their specialist contractor to build the track for the 2013 BMX World Championships to be held in Auckland, New Zealand.
The BMX building project demanded a huge transformation of the Vector Arena in Auckland, a centre usually used to hold concerts, galas, comedy shows, family events and other functions.
Working to an extremely tight timescale and within the weight and space constraints of the Vector Arena, Clark & Kent managed to produce a truly world class Supercross (SX) track to host a very memorable World Championships.
The project also included an overnight re-configuration that allowed elite competitors to race on.
Tarmacadam corners, along with typical limestone straights, were built on top of a wooden mass-filled structure designed to accommodate the weight and to ensure the project was completed within the time limits imposed by the Arena authorities.
