We're back for some fantastic riding at Southward Car Museum  

Here are all the details you need to know...

Southwards Car Museum is just off SH1 on Otaihanga road just north of Paraparaumu.

The dates are as follows:  Dec 10th, 17th, Jan 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th.


As you can see the course goes anti-clockwise around the museum. It's an approximately 700m circuit.  Around the back, the road dips down and then up again so it's a great course, very safe and a huge amount of fun.

One of the great things about this course is that it's fantastic for watching the event unfold as the riders come by every few minutes.

I'm sure many will ride there but, for those driving, parking is available inside the circuit.  We will have a marshal by the gate to let you know when you can cross the circuit safely.

The organisation is as follows:

  • $5 for Kapiti members. (capped at $10 for a family)
  • $10 for non-Kapiti members. (capped at ($20 for a family) 

If you aren't a member talk to the friendly faces at the registration trailer and they will give you the details or click HERE to see how to join (if you join now you get a membership through to the end of 2020).  If you've not ridden with us before you are welcome to try a few events out before deciding whether to join us in our obsession passion :)

The event is graded, with people of similar ability will be starting together and racing each other to the finish.  Only 1 event will be running on the circuit at a time.

For the seniors - as a guide...  Event 1 is for new riders, beginners and young adults.  Event 2 will be for people who are generally in C grade in our regular events.  Event 3 for B grade.  And Event 4 will be for those who are A grade normally.

Junior Events - start at 5:30pm - There will be a junior event in the half-hour before the adults begin.   The course will be dependant on the numbers and ages of the kids.   If we get a number of kids under 8 we will run a separate event that just takes in the front of the museum.    Older kids will have an event on the full circuit. 

Senior Event 1: Beginners/D grade - starts at 6pm and will go for 25 mins  = (20mins + 2 laps).  

Senior Event 2: C grade- starts at 6:30pm and will go for 25 mins = (20mins + 2 laps).  

Senior Event 3: B grade - starts at 7pm  and will go for - 35 mins (30mins + 2 laps).  

Senior Event 4: A grade - starts at 7:40pm  and will go for - 40 mins (35mins + 2 laps).  

So it'll pay to be well warmed up before you start.  There is ample space to warm up inside the circuit while other races are going on.

Registration will open at 5:15pm.

Timing will be done manually and the first 3 across the line will be judged.
