Goudies Road, 2nd December 2018

We will be hosting landspeed trials for cars and motorcycles on Goudies Road (near Reporoa, Waikato) on Sunday the 2nd of December, 2018.  Please see Locations for more information about Goudies Road.

With the exclusive use of 5.8 kilometers of straight flat road, this event will allow you to find out what your vehicle’s maximum speed is.

The middle quarter mile (402m) will be timed using Tag Heuer equipment, and you will be issued with a certificate for your speed.  The quarter mile has been professionally surveyed, and has less than 1% deviation.  Between the surveyed distance and the Tag Heuer timing equipment, you will get a very accurate result.

This event is open to road and race vehicles.

50cc
125cc
250cc

Information for attendees

If you would like more information on this event, please contact us.

Please note that the northern end of Goudies Road is gated and LOCKED in the forest, there is no public access this way.  Enter via Plateau Road, when you get to the end of Plateau turn left onto Goudies and this will bring you to the event.

If you are looking for accommodation, the closest main centers are Rotorua to the north and Taupo to the south.  If traveling from the north, pay heed to the above notice about the road being locked; make sure your GPS or Google Maps directions don’t try to take you that way.

Please note:

  • No pets allowed.  The consequences of an animal wandering onto the course are too great; please leave your pets at home.
  • No smoking, including vapor units.  This is important; not only are we are within a forestry area but our safety crews are on constant lookout for ANY smoke, cigarettes or vaping devices could trigger a false alarm which would shut down the event while it is investigated.
  • No alcohol.  Alcohol and motorsport don’t mix, please wait until after the event before celebrating with a drink, even if you are a spectator.
  • No children under 13, unless they are the immediate family of a participant.

Please remember that motorsport is dangerous, the above rules are for everyone’s safety and to ensure we stay within the conditions of our use of Goudies Road.

Keep an eye on the LSNZ Facebook page for updates in relation to the event.

If, due to adverse weather, the event cannot be held on Sunday the 2nd December, it will fall back to Sunday the 10th of February 2018.  If this happens, the change will be announced on our Facebook page and communicated to all participants.  Please note that there are no refunds of entries, instead your entry will be carried forward to the rain date.
