The action was wet and wild at Manfeild on Saturday as the Victoria Motorcycle Club kicked off its popular Actrix Winter Road-race Series.
But the early showers disappeared and the track quickly dried, making for some very hot race action.
Expect to see Tauranga’s Sloan Frost (BMW), Taupo pair Jamie Rajek (Honda) and Travis Merkel (Honda), Palmerston North’s Glen Williams (Yamaha), Upper Hutt’s Dion Sellers (Aprilia), Porirua’s Darrin Humphries (Yamaha), Taumarunui’s Leigh Tidman (Honda), Wellington’s Trevor Delany (Suzuki), Otaki’s Dillon Telford (Supermono), Dannevirke pair Nick Longstaff (Aprilia) and Geoff Booth (Suzuki) and Palmerston North’s Derek McAdam (KTM), to name just a few, at the pointy end of the racing all season long.
The Moto Acedemy boys — Kyle Hammond, Glen Orwin and James Jarman — should also be a feature in the 125GP class this year.
