Motorcycle racing is one of the most spectacular sports of any kind. Impossibly high lean angles are matched by incredibly fast Superbike acceleration rates, and the occasional spill.
And the biggest road race show this summer kicks off at Hampton Downs on Saturday December 10. Round two of the 2011 Suzuki International Tri-Series gets underway at Manfield a week later, followed by the 59th running of the famous Cemetery Circuit in Wanganui, on Boxing Day.
The 2010 edition eclipsed all expectations, and this year will be no different with $30,000 prizemoney up for grabs!
Heading the F1 Superbike class is defending three-time Suzuki Tri-Series champion Andrew Stroud and his Suzuki GSX-R1000. Anyone with hopes of winning this year’s Suzuki Tri-Series has to get past the nine times NZ Superbike champion, and that will be no easy task.
Yet three men were fast enough to beat Stroud last year, two from Australia, so the Hamiltonian didn’t have it all his own way. Sloan Frost fired the first shot by winning the opening race at Hampton Downs on his BMW 1000RR, and went on to claim second in the title chase. Australian top-runner Robbie Bugden won race two for Suzuki, however Stroud retaliated with a pair of wins at Manfield. But the father of eight got more competition than he expected during Wanganui’s final round on Boxing Day. Stroud held off strong challenges by Nick Cole (Kawasaki) and Craig Shirriffs in race one, then Australian Dan Stauffer (Yamaha) surprised everyone by taking victory in the final race during his first visit to the Cemetery Circuit. After a long duel with Stroud, Stauffer went on to win an exhilarating Robert Holden Memorial feature race.
F1 Sidecars is always a crowd favourite and the Adam Unsworth/Stu Dawe partnership will be a tough act to beat for the rest of the large field.
All the support classes will return including F3 Sportbikes, Post Classics (which promises to be a thriller this year), BEARS, Ultra Lites at the dedicated race tracks, and Classic Sidecars at Wanganui.
The first of the series starts on Saturday 10th December at Hampton Downs. For more information head to www.cemeterycircuit.co.nz”.
