THE GREAT CEMETERY CIRCUIT STREET RACE JUST GOT BETTER

THE GREAT CEMETERY CIRCUIT STREET RACE JUST GOT BETTER

At the beginning of the year, Cemetery Circuit Ltd conducted a survey to improve their Boxing Day race event and positive feedback confirmed for them that the Suzuki Series is heading in the correct direction.

Based on responses, Cemetery Circuit has acted, and below are some of the actions and improvements.

The response that the international riders provide value and prestige to the event was exceptional and this will continue to be pursued. The line-up for 2018 will be fantastic, with internationals including Peter Hickman (UK), Horst Saiger (Liechtenstein), John Holden (UK) and Robbie Shorter (NZ) and Gary Bryan and Phil Hyde (UK).

It will be great to see if they can compete with amazing local talent that will be stronger than ever this year.

Cemetery Circuit also thanks Carl Cox for his support because, without him, the international presence would not be possible.

Don’t miss out on tickets to Carl Cox concert after the races, tickets are available HERE

Many people indicated that they would enjoy VIP hospitality and, as a result, you can now receive the royal treatment on race day; details HERE

There is a limited number of tickets, so you are advised to purchase your tickets now if you want to be waited on, enjoying fine food and premium beverages as you watch the bikes zoom by at the best location at the track.

Cemetery Circuit Ltd is also going to increase the variety of food available at the food caravans.


The track has two locations, identified on the track map, that allow the public to cross the track at any stage during the race day and they are at points 8 and 15.

To make the event as safe as possible this year, the organisers have purchased another 12 extra-large deflector airbags and 27 water-filled barriers, all thanks to Four Regions Trust and NZ Community Trust grants.

Ultimately, Cemetery Circuit wants to eliminate all straw/hay bales to align the event with FIM regulation changes effective from 2020.

The track has two locations, identified on the track map, that allow the public to cross the track at any stage during the race day and they are at points 8 and 15. The alternative crossings are at gates which will be opened when possible. This won’t necessarily be at the end of each race due to timing and health and safety issues.

There is going to be the introduction of complimentary events to create a Speed Week, please keep an eye out on our social media for details which will to be released soon.

Cemetery Circuit wishes to thank all its sponsors, riders, over 200 helpers, including Allan Willacy, the event organiser, and the thousands of spectators that make this event possible.

Please go and support the Suzuki Series again and especially the Cemetery Circuit final round, “What else would you do on Boxing Day?”
