All is set for the Auckland Motorcycle Club Summer Series for 2019-20, to burst into life in two weeks, at Hampton Downs in the North Waikato.
Sunday 22nd will see the first round of the three round Series, all to be held on the traditional 2.7 km “National” circuit.
As last season, the Club Series will be concluded before Xmas, allowing competitors to then focus on the Suzuki Series, and NZSBK National Championship which follow.
On the programme for a ninth consecutive season is the Carl Cox Motorsport Hyosung and Ninja Cup, which for the second time will be a dual-class competition – one for the familiar 250 Hyosung’s, and the other for the Kawasaki EX400. These classes will again run as a combined grid.
Last season the Cup saw the rare result of brothers securing the complementary titles in the same season – Jacob Stroud securing a clean sweep in the Ninja Cup, while younger brother Jesse took out the Hyosung Cup – to claim the title that Jacob had secured one year earlier.
Alongside the usual familiar classes that are catered for across the Senior, Intermediate and Junior categories; Post Classics, Clubman’s and Sidecars will provide a full day of on-track action.
Entry is $15 for adults, and Under-12 are free.
Practice/qualifying starts at 09:00, and racing gets under way at 11:00.
