event calendar update
Due to the addition of an event, and also some clashes with othernational events, we have had a couple of changes to the calendar for the end of the year. Check it out HERE .
NEXT EVENT - at the new autocross track
Put 11 October in your diaries cause (weather permitting) it will be the first event on our new autocross track at TMMI at the TECT All Terrain Park. This will be a cat and mouse autocross, which should be great fun, so we look forward to a big turnout. Just need road tyres, helmet and overalls and you're read to go. We've got a rain out date of 18 Oct on this one, but fingers crossed that it will happen on the 11th.
Well after being washed out of our first event of the Challenge at Harray Rd (apparently the pit paddock was a lake!) we've had a fabulous day out at Te Puke Quarry Rd this Sunday 27th Sep. Wonderful weather, great group of helpers - thank you so much guys and girls, and a small but eager group of competitors. All added up to a great days racing, which has ended up with the times posted on the results page. Check it out. Thanks to all, competitors, helpers and spectators. We will use Manawahe Road on 6 December as the gravel Round 2 of the Hillclimb Challenge. Look forward to seeing you there.
Hampton downs dual sprints
Round 2 of our 2015 Track Championship was held at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park this last Sunday. A full field of 72 cars started, on a slightly foggy morning at Hampton Downs. But this soon burnt off and it turned out to be a perfect day for racing. A few mechanical DNF's but no incidents of any note and everyone got practice and three runs. Congratulations to Graeme Fraser who was first home in the MBOP stakes after a great battle with Shane Haitana from HRDC. Shane just pipped Graeme for the overall by the smallest of margins.
pukekohe dual sprints
Round 3 of our Track Championship is new for this year - we're going to have a dabble in the Pukekohe waters. The Commodore Car Club runs a five round series at Pukekohe and their final round is 1 November. We will use that event as as Club Points event and also as the final round of the Track Championship for 2015.
