The Burt blasts off

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX • BURT MUNRO CHALLENGE • FRANK ARTHUR AT -

With six dif­fer­ent rac­ing events, six dif­fer­ent tracks, a Toy and Poker run and a Rally to bind it all to­gether, the 2016 Burt Munro Chal­lenge is set to be the big­gest yet. Nowhere in the world is there a mo­tor­cy­cling event that of­fers more va­ri­ety and hos­pi­tal­ity than the ‘Burt’. Star at­trac­tion this year will be TT hero and tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity Guy Martin, who will tackle two events on his tur­bocharged Suzuki GSXR1100 and will of­fi­cially open the new Clas­sic Mo­tor­cy­cle Mecca mu­seum. Or­gan­is­ers ex­pect huge numbers of fans to de­scend on In­ver­cargill for the event, which be­gins on Novem­ber 24 and runs to 27th. The Burt Munro Rally opens at Oreti Park on 24th, with the ever-pop­u­lar Hill Climb at Bluff on the same day and the NZ Su­per-X Cham­pi­ons at Win­ton in the evening. Fri­day sees the NZ Beach Rac­ing Cham­pi­onships at Oreti Beach, fol­lowed by races at Tere­tonga Park on Satur­day with Oreti Park Speed­way in the evening. The Chal­lenge winds up with the Honda In­ver­cargill Street Races on Sun­day. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.burt­munrochal­lenge.co.nz
