Petrol heads across the country were saddened when it was announced the iconic Pukekohe Park Raceway would host its final motorsport event in 2023.

Thankfully the park's racing legacy has been preserved in a new short-documentary titled 'Checkered Flag'.

It follows the father-daughter duo managing the course at the end of its run as they try to give everyone one last chance to drive fast.

It's available to watch now via The Spinoff. Director Natalie Wilson talks to Jesse.
