Mov­ing the Burt Munro Chal­lenge from Novem­ber to Feb­ru­ary has been a suc­cess, the Ven­ture South­land quar­terly re­port says. De­spite a ‘‘dis­ap­point­ing end’’ to the chal­lenge, the com­mit­tee said the event was the big­gest held to date, with a 40 per cent in­crease in rally at­ten­dees from the 2016 chal­lenge. The fi­nal event of the chal­lenge was can­celled af­ter the first cou­ple of races af­ter there was an oil spill on the course.
