Running now for over 25 years, the Battle of the Streets team are getting organised for the 2018 race.
Held annually with all the precision and planning of a military operation, the circuit is set up under the cover of darkness, with SH2 being shut down at about 4am.
One of only two road races held in the North Island, you literally can’t get closer to that action. The Battle of the Streets is a not to be missed event for lovers of motorbikes, speed and racing excitement.
The 1.52km circuit has become known as the “Hacksaw” owing to its shape. It has provided a testing circuit on which riders reach speeds of 280kph and sidecars close to 220kph along the main straight.
