Event information


354D Manaia Road



Easy to find approximately 6 minutes from the Southern end of Masterton past the aerodrome. 

Google maps will bring you right in!!!


Onsite parking is tight. If you can please advise the organiser if you have a trailer or caravan so we can make room for you to fit in.

Long Trailers/Caravans will not fit into the carpark and there is not space on site for these unfortunately. There is a good camp ground in Masterton which has affordable rates for sites. 



Spectators free to watch. It is very tight parking so please be mindful when you arrive to not block anyone.

We are running this event in conjunction with RIR in Manawatu. Each event is seperate, and entry fees are payable to each club.

We are weather dependant and will do what ever we can to make the event work, and will be updating the FB page on all details leading up to the event. 

Event Information

The second running of the Wairarapa Champs is rocking a new format for 2024. Linking up with our sister club at RIR, we are running both championship events over this weekend due to the crowded summer calendar. 

Race format is the same as the Manawatu event and is as follows.

Round 1 is marble draw grids

Round 2 is reverse finish order of Round 1 

Round 3 Points. Ranked highest to lowest.

All 3 rounds count to final result. 

AMB 4.3 is used so all AMB, MRT, transponders work.

Classes Offered

As per entry list. We love vintage cars, so if you have them, get them brushed off and get them here as this is a great vintage old school rc track. 

Really want a full field of Grasshoppers and Hornets and the like so do make a effort with these special cars.

And if you have another older RM 2WD car, throw it in the class for them, a great way to get more 2WD RM track time!!!

Control Tyres

None, Goosebumps or Sprinters are the recommendations.

Lap Timing

AMB 4.3

All AMB and MRT transponders work. 

If you dont have a transponder we can manually time you if you can provide us a caller. 


You must marshall the race after yours. If you don't you put the meeting in jeopardy of running late. 

If you are back to back you should endevour to do 2 races as someone has helped you get to this point.


Bring all your own gear please. 

We are new small club and are building our gear up slowly. 

We have power on site, so bring a lead and work togther to make sure it goes around the pits for everyone to use. 

It is a grass paddock area, do bring pegs for the EZups as the wind can get up. 


We will have a BBQ on site selling sausages. Also some muffins and bickies. Town is not far away and we may be able to stop for a short break at rounds end. 


None on site, but there are a number of good accomodation options in Masterton. 

Copthorne Solway Park Hotel
Discovery Motor Lodge
Amble Inn
Gateway Motor Inn

There's loads more.


No wet weather venue, any updates will be on the FB page.
