One of a number of Daytona 675's the turned up
to the last track Day
WORD is there will be another Triumph Tri Day coming up soon.

Last time one of these was run was at Taupo in January 2009 with around 100 riders turning up to have a run around the new race track. Triumph NZ was pretty pleased because 70 per cent of the entries were Triumphs, with the 675 Daytona and Street Triples very well represented.

The new event will be held at Waikato's Hampton Downs circuit on Friday, February 8, 2013 - right before the annual Classic Festival. Normally the Classic Festival is run at Pukekohe, but with that circuit a virtual construction site as it is altered to suit the Australian V8 series organiser, the Classic Festival had to move. So it is off to Hampton Downs for the Classics, and with Triumph sponsoring that event for the first time in its illustrious history, the idea of a track day on the Friday was floated.

At this stage it looks as if there will be room to accomodate three groups of track day riders, and they will get five track sessions during the day.

We will post more details soon as they come to hand.
