Both islands play host to some big moto events this weekend with the Waikato Champs and the NZ Mini Nationals getting their roost on in the next two days!

The Waikato Champs, hosted by the North King Country Motorcycle Club will be held at their permanent facility at 376 Mangarino Road, Te Kuiti, between Otorohanga and Te Kuiti. A full range of classes available and some re-working of the track means it’s going to be another great Waikato Champs.

The digger has been out ensuring the track with be mint for this weekend.

For the mini riders, the New Zealand Mini Motocross champs are taking place in Christchurch – at 1228 Weedons Ross Road, West Milton – so if you haven’t already started heading down, you’d better book that flight now. With over 130 confirmed entries and more family trailers than you can park in a row, it is set to be a great weekend of Mini’s ripping up some southern dirt.

If you are at a loss this weekend for things to do, get along and support your local racers as they take on some of NZ’s best moto racers.
