An exciting new event for this year's event....a high-speed criterium which kicks off at 9.15 before the main races at 10.30.
The crit is a whole new ball game….fast and furious around a 1.5k course with sharp 180 degree turns at each end over 15 laps.
The race will be run partly on the pit lane and partly on the V8 track and is aimed at experienced cyclists.
The cost is $50 and if you want to enter one of the longer races as well you get a discounted price of $60 for both.
Registration for this and all other races is through our website which has a map of the high-speed criterium course on the “About Event” page: https://countiescycleclassic.co.nz/
Registering for both and getting the discount is slightly complicated so read the instructions carefully - you need to add a second participant (which is still you) and apply a code at check-out. If it all gets too hard, just register for one and bring $10 with you on the day and we’ll enter you for both.
The main races are held entirely on the V8 track. High-speed criterium racing is a great spectator spectacle so for those in the later races, we suggest you come early.
As usual, the track will be open to all comers (children and caregivers are especially welcome) from 2.00 when the main races have finished. The cost of this is $5.00 for children and $10 for adults. Students get a 50% discount on all the main races.
And do remember, all profits get ploughed right back into the community.
