NZCMRR Classic Festival returns to Pukekohe - Permit has been granted.

I am happy to inform you all that the MNZ have today confirmed a permit is issued for our Classic Festival to be held at Pukekohe on 30th, 31st January and the 1st February 2015.

This will be our key event for the summer and will return our celebration of motorcycling to its former location which we have enjoyed so much over the years.

There will be no championship points allocated at this event and Hampton Downs held on the 7th and 8th February 2015, will now be our first racing championship points event for the season.

Your committee will be working hard to organise an outstanding festival return to Pukekohe, but you may now make all your plans, as the dates and the venue are fixed.

The Roycroft Trophy 2015

NZCMRR members are invited to participate in The Roycroft Trophy Historic Race Meeting. Conducted by the Waitemata Branch of the Vintage Car Club of New Zealand (VCCNZ) on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th March 2014 at the Hampton Downs Motor Race Circuit in conjunction with the Historic Racing Sports Car Club, the Classic Motorcycle Register and the Pre 61 Saloon Register.

Technical Inspections

Riders are advised that Technical Inspections will take place during the Festival and at other race meetings. These Technical Inspections will examine machines to ensure that they comply with the rules of the class that they are entered to race in. The baseline for the Inspection will be the completed "Bike Specification" that is held on the Register's database and the Technical Rules of the Class. read more...

Message from the Machine Examiners

The Machine Examination is a safety inspection only, it is not a Tech Inspection. The Examiners are generally looking for items that are dangerous, sharp, loose, unsecured, fragile or leaking. They are also looking at items such as lockwiring of handle bar grips, or that the throttle returns to the idle stop. read more...

Race withdrawals and entry fee refunds

Entrants can get a refund of their entry fees provided they inform the race secretary (email is fine for this – race anytime up to the day before the race that they are not going to compete. When asking for a refund, please provide the date of the credit card transaction, and the name on the card. We can find the card number to credit the refund to from that information, usually. Of course, notice would be preferred as early as possible, as a courtesy to help with grids and programmes. But we are aware that some people work until the last minute to prepare but strike some problem that cannot be sorted out in time, so we will always have some late notifications.


No dogs are allowed at any NZCMRR race meeting. The risk of a dog getting out of control and in way of a race machine is not acceptable.

Anyone turning up with a dog will not be permitted access to the meeting.

There will be no exceptions to this rule.
