Summer Series 2015:

When:  Tuesday 6th  October
Where: Jordan Valley Circuit
Time: 5:45pm-6pm Sign On.
Entry Form & Dates:  Click Here...

The Summer Series is upon us once again starting on Tuesday 6th October at the Jordan Valley Circuit. We would like to thank Kia Tupato and the Oxford Trust for their support with Traffic Management in allowing this to happen.  We will still need Marshalls but hopefully with also now having a Timing System this should reduce the marshall and time keepers at the finish.

The format of racing will vary and we accommodate all types of riders and abilities. On each race night we will assess numbers and confirm the start orders and groups if needed. We hope to see as many of you there as possible to ensure we can also hold racing post christmas.

We have reduced the races to 8 this season as numbers got low in the last weeks of racing as people prepared for Taupo and other races. If we can get a good show of numbers for the 8 week series we will consider extending this after christmas.  

This year the purchased a timing system and a limited number of transponders. I would like to thank Julian Young for his efforts on setting up the timing system into an easy to carry and set up unit. The whole system fits into an easy to carry small toolbox and is ideal for our club racing.
The transponders have a subscription and can be loaded with 1, 2 or 5 year subscriptions. Some riders may wish to purchase and manage their own transponder and by doing this will receive a discount on race  & event fees put on by the Club. If you wish to do this please email me to find out costs and further details:

Race Fees:
Even though we have the support from Oxford trust and Kia Tupato their are still traffic management cost to cover so based on the average number of riders from previous seasons we have set the fees as below.

Member:  $40 per 8 race Series or $5 per night
Non-Member:  $80 per 8 race Series or $10 per night

If you sign up for the entire 8 race series you will be given a dedicated transponder to keep for the duration of the series and will also qualify for any point series or overall time placings in your age group. This applies to both members and Non-Members.  Entry on each night will give you an unnamed (but numbered) transponder that you will need to return after each race and you will not have the same transponder each week so will not qualify for any series points or placings.

Note: a lost or unreturned transponder will incur up to $150 fee. So look after these transponders and ensure you return them.
