THE BURT: DATES SET FOR 2013

Well, it has taken a wee while, but finally all the stakeholders involved in the staging of the annual Burt Munro Challenge in Southland have decided on the dates for 2013.

So, mark Wednesday, November 27 to Sunday, December 1 in your 2013 diary of things to do.


Although the stakeholders have not advised us exactly which events will be run, and when, it seems a good bet the format will follow previous years:



  • November 27 - NZ Long Track Championship, Ascot Park
  • November 28 - NZ Hill Climb Championships, Bluff
  • November 29 - NZ Beach Racing Championships, Oreti Beach
  • November 30 - Road racing, Teretonga
  • November 30 - Speedway, Oreti Beach
  • December 1 - Street racing, Wyndham


So get in quick - book your accommodation and Cook Strait ferry crossings now!
