I don’t want to be the first to say it but its only 5 months until Christmas and the better weather is coming.
 
Both Playday and Moto TT have plenty of events coming up and we would love to see you there.
It has been fairly quiet over the winter period and most days we have been running only 3 groups which has been giving plenty of track time to everyone that attends, it’s been great.
There has been a couple of date changes as we have been “bumped” on dates as Taupo has had a larger booking take our day. Please change your calendars.
 
The Southern Tour in March is fully booked but we do have a waiting list for both the car tour and the bike tour, if you would like to go on the waiting list please drop us an email.
 
Entries have opened for the 3rd running of the Motul 6 Hour endurance race for bikes. Already we have had plenty of team entries for what is going to be a hard fought battle to take the title again this year with all the top riders in the country attending.
 
We have the Chrome Festival at Hampton Downs this weekend 5th &6th Aug and it is going to be amazing, great turn out of the best cars in the country for a car show like no other.
