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...

Dogs

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.

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 nzcmrr.com) 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.
