The BRITTEN is BACK

The BRITTEN is BACK

The legendary Britten will return to the Cemetery circuit this Boxing Day December 26.

The machine which won the BEARS race at Daytona in 1996, is owned by Aucklander Kevin Grant and will be ridden by multiple New Zealand Superbike Champion Hamilton’s Andrew Stroud.

At present Stroud will be doing some demonstration laps, but depending on his other commitments on the day, Stroud may ride the bike in the BEARS class.

The Britten has not competed at Wanganui since 1996, then in the hands of Palmerston North’s Jason McEwen.

McEwen took the Britten to three overall victory at Wanganui, the first he shared the top spot with the late Robert Holden in 1992, won outright in 1994 and again in 1996.

It will be fantastic to see this legendary machine back at our World Famous Cemetery Circuit.

 

BE THERE ON DEC 26
