VMX Vintage Motocross

The Tauranga Motorcycle Club is very pleased to announce that the coming 2017 / 2018 Club Series race season will include a Vintage Motocross class (VMX)

Season dates:

  • 751 Welcome Bay Rd > Maize Paddock Fun Rides: 30th July and 13th August 2017
  • Tect Park MX > Father’s Day Fun Ride 3rd September 2017
  • Tect Park MX 17 /18 Series > 1st October, 5th November, 3rd December, 4th February, 4th March.

The club VMX class will be run as per any other class on the day, where with transponders, the series will culminate in an overall result and prize giving. Transponders are not compulsory, but are required of you want to score points.

This class is only open to senior riders and will be run on the main MX track.

All normal TGA club rules and MNZ rules where applicable will apply.

VMX is a steadily growing aspect of motorcycling enjoyment across NZ, and it is hoped that by including the class at TMC race days, that there will be a “cross pollination” of membership, especially those Bay of Plenty based, currently just riding the NZ VMX Series, will join in at TMC and vice versa.

The class will be “open” to all capacities and ages of vintage mx and enduro bikes, so long as they are Pre 1996 and are presented in authentic configuration for bikes of their era.

For more complete information regarding bike specs etc., please go to www.vmx.co.nz

Please also take a look at the VMX.CO.NZ Facebook page, always lots of bikes and stuff for sale, wanted to buys and heaps of helpful folk to assist with technical stuff if you have a question to post.

Apart from the enjoyment the riders get in displaying, talking about and riding their machines of “yester year” then the younger generation of today’s riders get a glimpse into how MX has evolved, and really enjoy seeing how the old bikes look, handle and sound…

If you happen to have an old bike tucked away, get it out, dust it off, fuel it up and come riding!

There’s always room to have more fun in life….

If you have any other queries, please contact me.
