10am start time for road races

posted in: Latest News

Starting with the race at Gisborne South this Sunday 9 September, all road races will now start at 10am and this start time will remain the same for all road races for the remainder of this year.

This only applies to road races and does not affect criterium races at National Boulevard, where the start time will remain at 9am.

The Gisborne South races we have on the program for 9 September and 28 October will involve parking, registration, presentations and amenities at the Gisborne Pony Club (Robertson Reserve, Couangalt Rd, Gisborne South). The start/finish will be at the top of the hill in Dalrymple Rd.

Lastly, we have re-scheduled the Angelo De Francesco Memorial Handicap which was cancelled recently due to a severe weather warning. It will now be held on Sunday 4 November at the Glenaroura circuit, two laps of the large loop (65km) and don’t forget the 10am start.
