Suzuki Series Round 2: 16th/17th December 2017 MANFEILD (Chris Amon Park)
Manfeild Circuit Chris Amon’s world-class, 3km main circuit has hosted spectacular racing since opening in 1973, from club events up to full international meetings.
Four-wheeled action has ranged from the New Zealand Grand Prix featuring Formula One-bound stars to national and international championship categories as well as endurance events, truck and transtasman V8 utility racing. Manfeild is also renowned as a world-class venue for motorcycle racing; hosting the Castrol six-hour endurance race series that ran for 15 years and world superbike fixtures that achieved global interest and now the International Suzuki Series.
The design of this superfast layout was overseen by famous Ferrari-associated racer Chris Amon, who grew up locally. The banked corners are a unique feature for a NZ motor-racing circuit and a particular reflection of Amon’s input; he had experienced – and enjoyed – similar gradients on some of Europe’s most historic tracks.
Suzuki Series Round 3: 26 December 2017 CEMETERY CIRCUIT
Cemetery Circuit is a temporary motorcycle street racetrack in downtown Wanganui, New Zealand.
It was named because the track goes through the old town cemetery. The daylong meeting is traditionally held on Boxing Day (26 December) each year and has been running since 1951.
Of international fame, this event captures the hearts and minds of motorcycle enthusiasts everywhere! From Formula 1 to side cars, international and national legends, this street circuit is 1.6 km (one mile) long with eight corners, a railway crossing, an over-bridge and blind S’s through and around the old Whanganui cemetery. This is Whanganui’s top one day event and if you have just a sniff of petrolhead in you, you won’t want to miss this!
‘What else would you do on Boxing Day!’
