Classic Motorcycle Racing Festival

03/02/2018 10:00am to 04/02/2018 05:00pm


Continuing the tradition of recreating racing history at Pukekohe the NZCMRR will again be celebrating its heritage with an incredible display of World Superbikes and riders, while also providing a Tribute to the legacy of our own Geoff Perry - a World class rider taken early in his prime.

Three times World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss will be riding his favourite 996RS Ducati while two times World Champion and now Kiwi Fred Merkel will be accompanying our own Aaron Slight (87 podiums) and Andrew Stroud on he track.

Andrew Stroud will also be demonstrating the World Champion Bears Britten while Superbike and Britten Rider Gary Goodfellow will demonstrate the very first Britten - Aero-d-Zero.

Parking and camping is free, and entry prices remain as they have done for many years at $25 per day or $40 for the weekend. A special family pass (2 adults and 2 children) is $50 for the day while children under 12 years are free. So bring the family for a weekend of thrills sounds and entertainment.

In the main marquee will be the display of World Superbikes and the tribute to Geoff Perry with both static and action displays. The pits are open to the public and recreate a bygone era, where the fans can mingle with the bikes and riders taking their photographs and getting autographs while talking to their heroes. Racing will continue throughout the two days with classes from Vintage to Pre 1989. Hear the thumping British singles as they compete around the circuit, and then listen to the shrill of a two stroke racer as it charges down the front straight, perhaps followed by the roar of a twin cylinder four stroke, as they each demonstrate the sound and action of their period in racing history.


Sign on will be open from 7.15am, upon arrival please bring your current MNZ competition licence, club membership card and helmet to sign on. After sign on take your motorcycle for machine examination / machine examination from 7.30am to 9.00am.
