tauranga clubman's
novice rally

The Tauranga rally is the highlight of the club's year, usually run annually. The emphasis is on novice competitors, giving crews the chance to experience a basic level event to learn and hone their skills.

In 2017 the Clubman's Rally is taking a break as Tauranga will be hosting the final Round of the New Zealand Rally Championship.  But we'll be back in 2018!


congratulations cole armstrong

Following wins at Dunedin, Hampton Downs and consistent results at the other events, MBOP's 2016-17 Demon Energy D1NZ National Drifting Championship Drifting Title at Pukekohe over the weekend.  Cole, driving his V Energy Nissan Skyline 350GT enjoyed a clean run throughout the weekend to get into the top four, where he won his first heat and then beat Daynom Templeman in the final heat for the Championship.  Well done Cole and the team.

next events

Some events for the tarmac competitors up next, beginning with the Hamilton Car Club sprint Kairangi Loop on 7 May.  This is one of HCC's iconic events and a number of MBOP competitors attend it each year, so we thought we would add it to our points events.  So all you tarmac competitors need to start preparing your cars and head over to the Waikato on 7 May to this great event.

Then we're back to Baypark on 14 May for a round of our Motorkhana/Autocross series in the pits there.  Always a popular venue and we look forward to seeing lots of competitors there.  Information on this event will be posted next week.

And then it's back to Oropi Gorge Road for our quickfire sprint down and up the hill.  A tricky little piece of road this is and always great fun.

So a busy month coming up for our tarmac competitors and all the organisers and helpers alike.  Fingers crossed that the weather behaves itself.
