Following 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.

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 constructed a 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. Asphalt corners, along with typical limestone straights, were built on top of a wooden mass-filled structure designed to accommodate the weight. The project was completed within the strict time limits imposed by the arena authorities.

You can watch an awesome video produced by Clinton Tudor Photography, who created a time-lapse video behind the scenes of the incredible BMX track build in Vector Arena Auckland in less than a week!
