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.
ONE HOUR ENDURO
An event to test both man and machine. One hour’s riding on laps around the Showgrounds.
EVERDAY VEHICLE RACE
This tests practicality. The aim is to pickup and transfer the most items of cargo from one location to another, using a “rob-the-nest’ format. Cargo is in the form of photocopier paper boxes.
