TECT PARK OPEN DAY
AND TWILIGHT AUTOCROSS
This weekend we have a working bee at the Park on Saturday and then on Sunday is the TECT Park Open Day. MBOP is intending to run a demonstration motorkhana and in the afternoon we were going to do some rides on the autocross track. Unfortunately the Sunday forecast means it is likely we won't get onto the autocross track because it will be too wet. However, it's looking likely that the Open Day will go ahead. This will be confirmed some time tomorrow by the Park Management.
So we would welcome Club members coming up and helping with the motorkhana. Doing demonstration (getting practice!) and giving some rides. We'll keep our fingers cross regarding the autocross event, but keep an eye here and on Facebook just in case we have to cancel the event.
Spectacular news from the weekends Clubsport Championships at Taupo. Neil Rogers and Jordan Grant from our club were there, with Jordan competing in the Junior Category. Very pleased to report that it was a supremely successful weekend for Jordan, with him coming away with the title of New Zealand Junior Clubsport Champion. Congratulations and well done Jordan.
And Neil didn't do to shabbily either, coming home 5th overall. Well done Neil.
Old Kaimai Rd Gravel Hillclimb
We had an excellent day at Old Kaimai this year, withe 27 competitors tackling the very slippery 2.4km of gravel. No incidents of any note and a good three runs plus practice were had. Congratulations to Phil Campbell who who the day, chased hard by the pack of Phil Jones, Richard Rau, Chris Tregilgas and Paul Martelli. Results can now be found in Event Results.
MOTORKHANA/AUTOCROSS Rnd 2
Another beautiful (if hot) day at the TECT All Terrain Park for Round 2 of our motorkhana/autocross championship. Amid a great deal of dust a great deal of fun was had by all competitors. Though probably not as much fun for the marshalls. Big thanks to Shane Tofts, Les McLaren, Zane Houston, Mike Smith, Shaun Piper and Gayle Jones for their efforts in standing out and getting covered in dust. And thanks also to Joanne who came out specially to do the results. Much appreciated. And speaking of results - they are now posted on the results page.
