New Zealand Motorcycle Awards Dinner

New Zealand Motorcycle Awards Dinner

Motorcycle Trader & News in association with Motorcycling New Zealand and the NZ Motorcycle Distributors Association will host the second motorcycle awards dinner in Auckland on November 27th 2004.New Zealand has produced more world champions in motorcycle sport than any other discipline, a fact that has been overlooked for far too long.

The awards dinner is designed to redress this by raising the profile of the sport and to applaud its star performers.

Twelve category award winners will be named on the night including the latest inductee into Motorcycling’s Hall of Fame.

The evening will also see the launch of Motorcycling New Zealand’s Rider Welfare Trust, a charity set to provide support for injured motorcyclists.

As a special feature guests will celebrate the 25th anniversary of New Zealand’s success in the team speedway World Championship. We will also honour New Zealanders who have won the Isle of Man TT.

Members of the speedway team and Isle of Man winners will attend the event.

Sports that have enjoyed very limited international success recognise the achievements of their sports men and women, the NZ Motorcycle Awards gives us the opportunity to celebrate our champions on two-wheels, many of whom are better known in other countries than they are here. It will be a black tie affair at the Sky City Convention Centre in Auckland.
