Organisers Gary & Jannine Pope hope you all had a BLAST in the snow
The track proved itself as an all-weather venue, with inches of snow falling on the road in and covering the upper sections, where a little more challenge all around was had with snow and then slushy routes. The Mini track proved a real hit and keeping everyone upright and moving was the best defence against chilly toes and fingers, though those quad exhausts made great handwarmers too!
Much thanks to Kevin Schultz, Quintin Matthews, and Raine Wills setting up, and Mark Hockey, Richard East (who rode in thru the snow to the track!) and to the Wilks' for their hard work at sign in, plus Bob Cooke for his stewardship on a cold day!
Thanks all - Jannine and Gary Pope

**NO MORE HELMET MOUNTED CAMERAS**
MNZ have researched camera use on helmets and as per the FIM and all other NZ motorsports, you can no longer use a camera fixed to your helmet because the camera/mount creates an impact point which compromises the helmet’s design.
For the purposes of clarification the rule regarding Helmets and the use of Camera’s now reads:
Cameras may be fitted to the motorcycle providing they are securely mounted. Camera mounts are subject to approval by the Machine Examiner. Helmet Cameras or other accessories are not permitted to be attached to the rider’s helmet.
Whilst important you read all the rule changes we have highlit some major changes that effect events or safety equipment.
Rule 6.2a - Off Road & Road
Now includes suspected concussion. If there is a suspected concussion you have an automatic stand down of 21 days unless you supply a medical clearance stating you were not concussed and are fit to compete in motorcycle competition. The medical clearance must be from a doctor, surgeon or specialist.
Rule 8.1b Safety Gear – Road
Your back protector has to be a certified back protector of composite material which must be worn at all times. The standard for chest, shoulder and back protectors is EN1621.
Chest Protectors will be compulsory from 1 Jan 2018.
Rule 8.2a – Off Road & Road
The helmet standards have been updated so check your helmet meets them. Also note some helmets are being phased out and the date they are valid to is in the rules.
