Overview and event structure
This is Kiwi HPV’s premiere event, and consists of three separate races, where various attributes of both the rider and the machine can come to the fore.
A 200m drag, raced in pairs.
EVERDAY VEHICLE RACE
An extreme take on the ususal cycling commute. Entrants race off in pairs, completing 6 laps around a course, but having to stop and load up with a variety of cargo on the 2nd lap, and also having to ride through a rain-shower (supplied by a man with a high pressure water hose) every lap.
ONE HOUR ENDURO
An event to test both man and machine. One hour’s riding on laps around the Showgrounds.

John Falconer attracted a lot of attention with this very innovative velomobile. This FWD, RWS tricycle is made mostly of sheet aluminium and is riveted together. John won a trophy for having the most outstanding machine at the HPC.
