New racing venue
Lawn mower racing has accumulated South Waikato followers and they will now have a new location. The Bay of Plenty Lawn Mower Racing Club was established in Tokoroa and worked with South Waikato District council staff to find a new area. The last event was held at the Tokoroa Memorial Sports Ground but damage to the fields meant they had to relocate. The new location will be on the land across from the airport. It is owned by the council and leased by a local farmer.
