Hi Again folks, 


Just a quick reminder that the New Zealand Road Race champs are due to kick off this coming weekend at Levels, just out of Timaru.

The Nationals is a 5 round series, 3 in the South Island, 2 in the North. The main classes are Superbike (1000cc), Supersport (600cc), Formula 3 + Protwin (650 twins, 450 inline 4's) and 125GP. Going by the lead ups so far (Munro, South Island Cup and Tri Series) this will be a very very fast and furious nationals! 


Team Southland Honda will once again be making the journey up to compete, however this year we will only be competing the South Island rounds as I am getting married in early April which coincides with one of the North Island rounds, as well as this I am penciled in to have a long overdue knee operation early next week, which could make riding a bike at full speed very interesting! 


The 2nd round is down here at Teretonga, on the 4th 5th and 6th of Febuary. Honda New Zealand is kindly erecting a marquee for the Honda national riders including Hayden Fitzgerald and Ryan Hampton (Honda CBR1000) and myself on the CBR600. We will also have a display of road bikes at the track. We are talking about having a bike park and gear storage as well as a BBQ, so if you are in the neighbourhood that weekend, stop on by and come and have a watch and a chat! I am pretty positive that there will be some epic racing going on! 


On the Friday the 4th we will be having our annual meet the riders night at the shop from about 6pm till 10. It is a great chance to come and meet the guys and girls who put it on the line to bring you some world class racing. There will be race bikes in store so you get a chance to see them up close and personal and maybe get an autograph or two! 


I your in the pits come and say hi, we are looking forward to seeing you all there!
