Levels - Have a go day


Have a Go Day At Levels Raceway Timaru

Saturday 16th March 2019

MNZ Permit No. : TBA




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.
