Our next points event is for our tarmac competitors - Round 3 of the Ngongotaha Hillclimb series run by RCC - 23 March for that one.
Then next up for the gravel rashers is the MSNZ Hillclimb Championship final in Gisborne. Always a great weekend and this year four teams from MBOP will be flying the flag in Gisborne weekend 15/16 March. We wish them success.
Then the next points even for MBOP is the MacDougall Quarry Rd Hillclimb. Always a great event and this year on 13 April. So we'll see you there.
Day / Night Sprint
Well, another good field for the day/night sprint at Te Matai Motorsport, with 26 cars tackling the day runs on dry and very dusty roads. So dusty in fact that after the practice run, we went to 2 min intervals for the cars. Again, only a few cars dropped out before the night runs, and 20 cars went roaring off into the forest with the lights glowing (well most of them were glowing). There were a few withdrawals after the first night run, but most finished happy and Phil Campbell took out the overall win, keeping TVCC's Graeme Featherstone at bay. Well done Phil and all the other competitors as well. Results are now posted.
Thank you to all our very special marshalls, especially Megan, who stood in the dust all day and night at the start line, ably assisted by our Medic Les. Thanks to Sue Moczydlowski, Shane Tofts, Brent Hills, Andrew Shrimpton, and Shane Ward our marshalls. Also to Hayden and Heather Wise who filled in when Andrew had to go home. Special mention must be made of our BBQ Crew - led by Dee Byrne, who was assisted by Megan Adlington and Shelley Wood and who put on a cracker BBQ for competitors and helpers.
We sincerely appreciate your help guys.
And do check out the regs page regularly - we will put up what information we get about other Club's events as we receive it.
