All is set for the Auckland Motorcycle Club Summer Series for 2018‐19 to burst into life this Sunday, at Hampton Downs in the North Waikato.
A number of changes punctuate the three round Series, all of which will be held on the traditional 2.7 km “National” circuit.
The first is that the Series will be concluded well before Xmas; and also in advance of the Suzuki Series, and NZSBK National Championship which follows.
The second is that the Carl Cox Motorsport Hyosung and Ninja Cup is back for a remarkable eighth year; and this season will be a dual- class competition – one for the familiar 250 Hyosung Cup, and a new Ninja Cup for the Kawasaki EX400. Both these classes will be running as a combined grid, and promise a capacity field of 42 riders.
With Jacob on an EX400, and Jesse on an X4r Hyosung, the Stroud family are in contention for a very unique “double” come December.
Complementing the usual familiar classes that are catered for across the Senior, Intermediate and junior categories; Post Classics and the very popular Sidecars will provide a full day of on‐track action.
Look for Nathanael Diprose – now back on a 600 Suzuki following a period of ill health. He will face stern competition from Jason Hearn on the 675 Triumph, in the Senior field. And it doesn’t end there – with plenty to look at across the entry.
Entry is $15 for adults, and Under‐12 are free. Practice/qualifying starts at 09:00, and racing gets under way at 11:00.
