ROAD racing revs into gear at Teretonga Raceway this Sunday.
The Southland Motorcycle Club (SMCC) kicks off its road racing season with round one of the Southland Cup.
SMCC vice-president Bill Moffatt was eager to see a solid field of entries.
“We’d love to see the pits brimming with motorbikes,” he said.
“As a sport we are aiming to deliver exciting opportunities for riders to experience the thrill of road racing. It’s not just about the elite, these events are designed to ensure there’s a class on offer for all abilities.
“This is a fantastic chance to get the motorbike out of the garage after winter hibernation and have some fun.”
Classes on offer include superbikes, supersport, superlite/pro twin, development, post classic and super motard.
Two have-a-go classes would cater for those new to the racing scene, including first-timers.
“This is Burt Munro country and there’s a real passion for motorcycles down here. Instead of just riding on the road, this is a chance to add a different experience and even open the throttle up a bit in a safe and supportive environment,” Moffatt said.
“It’s a pretty addictive sport and we’d love to see the ranks continue to grow.”
