ENZED Offroad champs Rnd 1

After a day of spectacular crashes and rollovers on a challenging farm course, three drivers have emerged from the opening round of the 2015 ENZED Offroad Racing Championship at Kaukapakapa on Saturday March 07 with a share of the series lead.

Warren Adams made a clean sweep of racing in class six for challenge-style four-wheel-drives in his V8-engined Nissan, Scott Buckley likewise took three wins from three starts in class 10 for motorcycle-engined cars in his BSL Terra Nova, and in the youth Kiwitruck class new racer Boston Horan took three wins from three starts in Little Black. The trio all took a maximum 72 points from the day’s racing.

A rain shower the previous day did little to dampen the track, which became dusty as racing got underway. A strong wind helped clear thick dust off the racing line but rollovers and crashes were numerous.

The next northern round of the 2015 ENZED Offroad Racing Championship is the Woodhill 100, a punishing forest endurance race that is the oldest in the sport in this country.

The Woodhill 100 is held at Queen’s Birthday Weekend on a track accessed off Trig Road, north of Parakai.
