Hi All,
The next meeting at the Mt Wellington Kart track is Saturday the 23rd of February. Sorry to say but we have received a large increase in the price of the track hire so we now have to raise the price for adults to $20 for the day. (still great value for a days riding) Children under 16 are $10 for the day.
Below are the details from the Trade Me advertisment.

Having trouble finding somewhere to ride or looking for more excitement on your pocketbike. For $20 ($10 for kids under 16) you can come to the Mt Wellington Go Kart track in Tainui Rd, Mt Wellington, Auckland and get 2 hours over the day of riding your minimoto/pocket bike.
The meeting date is Saturday the 23rd of February, 2008. (RAIN or SHINE)
Heres a chance to ride on the safety of a race track with similar bikes in controlled conditions (no cars, no footpaths, no dangerous roads). For a day you can pretend to be a Moto GP rider. We cater for both kids and adults.
We provide the use of the track shared with other riders.
YOU PROVIDE THE POCKET BIKE (MUST have rubber or plastic covered footpegs, no exposed metal that can gouge the track is allowed, no side stands please) and the appropriate safety gear
Upon arrival to the track you will need to sign an indemnity form stating that you are responsible for the risks associated with motorcycle riding on a track.
Safety gear MINIMUM
Full face road helmets are preferred; motocross helmets must have chin guards and motocross goggles, full face helmets must have visor closed or just open while on the track
Leather gloves, juniors may use motocross gloves
Knee and elbow pads of good quality
Footwear to cover ankles
Heavy clothing to give minimum protection in a fall, must not be loose fitting
No exposed skin or light weight clothing
Please remember that these bikes will go at least 50kph and crashing at this speed can cause severe grazes without protective clothing e.g. jeans shred instantly at 50kph. If you have them full leathers are preferred.
We commence the day at 9 30 am till 4pm.
The track time is shared with Bucket racers and Scooters giving pocket bikes a 15 minute ride every Hour.
Assistance will gladly be given to those who are new to pocket bikes or want information to race competitively.
Sorry to all those with Moto X, choppers and other bikes but this offer is only available to minimoto's / Pocket bikes as per the pictures.

Reminder that our next meeting is this Saturday. Looks like a few showers forecast so be prepared for some slip slidin. Great wet weather motorcycle racing practice especially sliding down the track in your leathers (yeha). We run the meeting rain or shine so dont be shy if the weathers bad.
