23 November - Manawahe Hilllclimb
The second to last chance to score club points for the Club Championship 2014 is at Manawahe Rd Hillclimb hosted by Rotorua Car Club. This event is also being used as Round 2 of our Hillclimb Championship, due to the fact that the weather caused the cancellation of the Harray Rd Hillclimb. So all you competitors who have entered the Championship make sure you come out to Manawahe. It's an iconic piece of NZ rally road and the hillclimb is a very technical and enjoyable one. So do come out and support RCC at this event. Details are on the Regs page.
Well, the first of our 2014 Championships has been decided at Round 3 of the series at the TECT All Terrain Park on Sunday 28 Oct. A great crowd of competitors (31) turned out for the last round of the Motorkhana/Autocross Championship, despite the nasty, cold wind that blew all day.
Heaps of fun was had on the three motorkhana courses with only a couple of cones donating their lives to the cause. Lots of new people having a go and some keen competition saw Chris Flegg top the leaderboard for the Motorkhanas. And so, on to the Autorcross course, where the horsepower of Phil Jones' VR4 just held out the nimbleness of Neil Rogers' Peugot 205. There was competition all through the field with John Bouzaid stealing a run each from his daughters Lilian and Caprice to try and beat the very good time Caprice had posted. This of course challenged Caprice to post a better time and although she didn't manage to beat Dad's time, the time she put up took her to 5th overall in the Autocross. A great result.
Neil Rogers, who had a day of being second at this event, gained enough championship points to become the 2014 Motorkhana/Autocross Champion. Congratulations Neil, well done.
