Auckland Motorcycle Club: Coming down to the wire

Auckland Motorcycle Club: Coming down to the wire

Round Five of the Auckland Motorcycle Club Series is on this coming Sunday, and all eyes are on the weather forecast with reports of a tropical low moving south, carrying with it the possibility of a wet and windy day in store. It’s a potential further challenge facing competitors in the penultimate Round of the very popular Auckland Club Series.

A number of class points stand delicately poised, and with just the final Round to follow on April 6th, any mistake could have dire consequences for those aspiring to a Series title.

Jaden Hassan stormed back into contention in Formula Auckland at Round Four; whilst in F2 Toby Summers will have conflicting priorities. Currently leading the F2 National Championship - which resumes just a week later at Taupo - Daniel Mettam will have all his attention on Sunday, as he looks to claw back the 24 point deficit in F2 in the Club Series.

Similarly affected; Doug Stockwell and Gavin Veltmeyer – competing nationally in ProTwin 650 and Superlite respectively.

The Hyosung Cup continues its wheel-to-wheel action, and the full complement of supporting classes will fill out a busy day of motorcycle road-racing.

162: John Houben
150: Jaden Hassan

Spectators: Adult $12, AMCC Member $10 (with membership card), Family Pass $25 (2 adults & 2 children), additional child $5 each, under 12 free if accompanied.
