    Detailed Map - Levels

    GROUPS WILL BE ARRANGED AS FOLLOWS:

    • Group 1: (first timers) Coaching will be provided in this group, and passing is only allowed on the straights (on the right side)
    • Group 2A: This group is intended as a step up from group 1, or for those who may have attended other track days. Coaching provided, passing allowed anywhere, no heroes!
    • Group 2 B: This group is for those who have attended other track days or faster bikes/riders. Passing allowed anywhere. No racing. No heroes. No crashing.
    • Group 3: This is a race class, and we will be having flag/lights starts. A full MNZ licence will be required. One event licences are available by application only and must be approved before the event.
    • Group 4: Small capacity bikes such as Street Stock, 250cc, buckets, etc. We will provide a class for these bikes assuming we get sufficient numbers (more than 8).

    This is to ensure we do not have bikes with a large differential of speed on the track together.

    The organisers can and will move people from one group to another group as skills and speed evolve throughout the day.
