Big changes at the Burt

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The Burt Munro Chal­lenge cel­e­brates its 10th an­niver­sary in 2015, and will be held from Thurs­day 26 – Sun­day 29th Novem­ber. The big news is that the street rac­ing which in past years has been held at nearby Wyn­d­ham, will now be staged in In­ver­cargill. The City Coun­cil has agreed to close off part of the city to cre­ate a roughly rec­tan­gu­lar cir­cuit in­cor­po­rat­ing Bill Richard­son Drive near the Wai­hopai River, with good com­peti­tor and spec­ta­tor ac­cess. The pop­u­lar Burt Munro Chal­lenge Rally will again be based at Oreti Park, Dunns Road, Otatara, In­ver­cargill, with an en­try fee of $75. The non-stop pro­gram fea­tures a Hill Climb at Bluff, Su­per­cross at Oreti Plains, Beach Rac­ing at Oreti beach, Road rac­ing at Tere­tonga, Speed­way at Oreti beach Speed­way, and winds up with Sun­day’s Street Races. The South­land Vintage Car Club is also hold­ing a mo­tor­cy­cle ex­hi­bi­tion at Otatara School Hall on the Fri­day and Satur­day (27th & 28th Novem­ber) with over 80 Vet­eran, Vintage and Clas­sic mo­tor­cy­cles on dis­play. This year will fea­ture Har­leDavid­sons, and the lo­cal Har­ley agents, McIver & Veitch, will have the latest mod­els on show. For more in­for­ma­tion see... www.burt­munrochal­lenge.co.nz
