With Four rounds of racing to run for 2022 NHRCCC race season, the pressure is building for the front running drivers,
Check the points talley on this site, and you can see its tight at the top of all our points scoring classes.
Then to throw into the mix we have the Tony Stephens Memorial Club Classic.
NHRCCC has held a long history of running the Club Classic when we had our out track at North Harbour Events Centre, giving our club racers a chance to run in a different format from club racing. And 2022 is no different. with tripple points and this event is counted seperately to the club championship, and a bad result could shake up the pointscore.
We attempted to run this event last year after the loss of one of our club presidents Tony Stephens, but covid lock downs stopped that. Now thankfully that seems to be behind us and we can get this event underway.
Triple Points are on offer for this meeting for NHRCCC Club Members, Other NZRCA licensed members are eligible for the outright title in each class offered.
