The Britten at Cemetery Circuit

The Britten is back!

To celebrate one of the world’s most iconic motorcycles ever built we’ll be showcasing the Britten at Cemetery Circuit with Andrew Stroud riding demo laps. This is a salute to the bike, its creator John Britten and the team that produced a world-beating motorcycle from their garage.

We are doing this to give spectators the rare opportunity to see and hear the Britten on track again. It’s a chance to appreciate the machines absolute uniqueness while watching a New Zealand-built, World and NZ Championship winning motorcycle.

Andrew will be riding Britten F002, the World Bears Championship winning motorcycle and you can find out more about the actual bike itself here. We can’t wait to share it with you again!
