Hopefully everyone enjoyed the Christmas and New Year holiday period, and managed to take a break of some description.
2016 is now well under way, and it is a busy time for AMCC, with a load of things going on behind-the-scenes as we prepare for three big events in the coming month.
AMCC Club Series — Round Four:
Is first up —Sunday 14 Feb.
By now you will all be aware of the rapid developments at Hampton Downs.
The 2016 circuit pricing has been released, and you will note the adjustment in the Entry Fees for Round 4. It is a user pays model that reflects the significant investment that is being undertaken, and AMCC are still working thru what that means for the Club in the mid-long term.
For now we believe our members will support the club over the final two rounds of the 2015–2016 season, and make these competitive, enjoyable and successful events that won’t have a negative fiscal impact on the club.
Paeroa Battle of the Streets follows on Sunday 21 Feb.
It is not too late to register for the Battle of the Streets event, so if you’ve been thinking about it, get online to http://www.battleofthestreets.co.nz/riders-information/ or get in touch with Paeroa Promotions Trust — ASAP.
The future of this event does hang somewhat in the balance — it would be a terrible loss to the motorsport calendar if it was to fold.
Good luck to all the competitors, and let’s hope for good weather — and a huge crowd.
Buckets Rd 5:
Unfortunately there is a date clash on February 21st — with Paeroa, and the Miniature Road Race, who have their Round 5 on the same day, out at Mt Wellington.
Unfortunate — but be sure to get out and support at least one of these events.
March 5–6 sees AMCC hosting the final Round of the National Road Race Championships at Hampton Downs.
This meeting is AMCC’s biggest commitment — both manpower and financial — of the calendar year, and we look forward to the support of our Members, whether competing, spectating or assisting with the operation of the meeting.
Spread the word — tell all your family and friends, and let’s see a big crowd out at the circuit to witness what will be a very exciting climax to the NZSBK Championship.
A number of AMCC members are competing with distinction across a variety of classes, and they will appreciate the local support also.
Good luck to all AMCC members competing.
New AMCC Website:
There is a new AMCC website now live (as you can see), with a focus on more currency of content and a friendlier layout. There’ll be ongoing improvements, so feel free to let us know what you think here.
