None at club days. If you want to win a club trophy really badly, get in touch with Hulio for a replica.

Lap Timing

Live RC and AMB.

We run AMB 4.3 meaning all MRT and AMB transponders can be read. 


You must marshall the heat after your race. If you have a double up please get soemone else to cover that race.

Marshalling is the most important part of racing and if no-one does it, then the day drags. Just get out there, you do learn lots of lines and techniques if you are sharp. 


Mowen grass pit area, 240V Power, air compressor. Bring your own tables, chairs, ezups. Ezups must be pegged - this is the Manawatu afterall.


P&B Snacks will have a small stall running. 

All rubbish brought to the track needs to be picked up and taken away. A single rubbish bin will be behind the drivers stand.


We will advise on our facebook page any updates.

Should this also be wet, the event will be cancelled.
