17/07/10 - F1's are Back
2011 is set to be the biggest battle seen on the water in over 10 Years. Maybe the recession is easing with the boats & engines that have been pulled out of the garage & exchanged for cash recently, now sitting in new garages getting prepped for the 2011 Boat racing season. It’s been a long time since we have seen a line up like this — Come the first race - Grid positions won’t be gifted to racers that turn up they will be battled for in Qualifying & Hot Laps.

31/12/09 - NZ Nationals Series Update.
We will be proceeding with our two round National Series as planned. We will open it up to allow one-round entrants to pay half fee $200 and gain points for their championship. If you dont wish to pay this then you can pay regatta entry fee anyway and may be able to race with your class or in mixed fields subject to numbers (No championship points). We have a sponsor who will pay $200.00 travel money returned to interisland-traveling championship entrants. We are still holding entries open as they are still trickling in. Bottom line is we have enough numbers to contest most fields and classes and we will be going racing at Lake Karapiro and Lake Rotoiti
All the best for the New Year
