2014 Barry Sheene Motorcycle Classic - Entries extended.
Entries have been extended till Sunday 28th of September 2014.
The Barry Sheene Oceanic Challenge is getting closer and the plans are progressing well. By now you will probably know if you intend to race or not.
If you are not racing, we urge you to consider donating some time and volunteering to Marshall for the event (we need 92 Marshall days) This can be just one day or two or all three. It is a way of stepping up and giving back to the sport that we all love.
Without our Marshalls we would not be able to run the meeting, so we look forward to you replying via the Registration form enclosed. Send it back as soon as you can as there are limited places to fill.
The bonus of volunteering to Marshall is :
- Free entry for the day.
- Front row track side seats at the meeting
- $30 koha fuel vouchers
- A lot of appreciation from other members for stepping up.
If you have any questions feel free to call the Marshall Coordinator - Brian on 09 908 8848 or 027 2794115.
Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you soon.
2014 Barry Sheene Motorcycle Classic featuring the Oceania Challenge (NZ vs Australia)
Hampton Downs - 24-25-26 October 2014
Entries are now open for the 2014 Barry Sheene Motorcycle Classic. To enter please click here to download the entry form. Entries close 5.00pm Friday 19th of September 2014.
The Oceania Trans Tasman Challenge pits fifty local racers against the visiting Australians with similar lap times. In the last two years we have seen the Kiwis clean up at Hampton Downs.
A special feature of the event will be the guest appearance of acclaimed women motorcycle racer Maria Costello MBE from England - "The Queen of Bikers". Maria was the first women to gain a solo podium finish at the Isle of Man TT when she came third in the 2005 Ultra-Lightweight TT on a Honda RVF 400 VFR and also took a debut third place at the NorWest 200 on the same machine.

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...
Please note that the P.O. Box number has changed.All correspondence and entries should be addressed to:
PO Box 11 301
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 – face 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.
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.
