View Full Version : Minimoto in Nelson

25th April 2007, 16:35
trying to get some minimoto racing up and running in nelson, we have the possibility of running at the local go kart track, similar to the indoor kart tracks in the larger centres.
the owner is dead keen on the idea, but we need to find out how they go about it at similar venues elsewhere, what are the osh requirements etc

is anybody that is involved with minimoto racing able to provide any info

Anybody know if theres anyway we could start sum mini motard racing here in New Plymouth as we have a awesum go cart track now and it'd be perfect for having sum races at. Ive got a 125cc pitty and would be keen as to throw sum road tyres on and have a blast it'd be great fun !!!!!!

Its hard to find good keen people these days tho and anything thats fun gets knocked !!! I HATE PC :nono: NEW ZEALAND. Bring back the good old "Kiwi's" cos were all forgeting what were about and who we are. Im 100% proud KIWI !!! But NZ is getting farkin worse people.

Anyway if there are keen people in the naki for this maybe pm me an we can get the ball rolling even if we meet at a carpark sumwhere:Punk:

no, not the redwoods valley go cart track, the club there is, lets say, a bunch of wankers

we are trying for the newly extended track in tahuna, bit smaller and more suited for minis

Try Chris or Glen at Street and Sport in Chch, they run (or used to) at the indoor track in Moorhouse ave so he should know what is required

ph 03 366 2201

re the Kart track wankers, the situation we had in Chch was the Kart club was fine with letting us hire the facilities, the residents association found a clause in the terms of use which meant we couldn't, as they are anti racing and would like the track moved

Some years ago a member of the public (local resident) complained about the Kart Club letting the roller bladers use the track as it was "for Kart Racing only" and got them kicked out.
They have to be very careful because of consents etc
