Can you be the rider to beat him this year?


Labour Weekend brings the 29th running of the Greymouth Motorcycle Street Race. Join in the excitement as more than 100 riders on a wide range of machines battle it out to be first over the line in their respective classes. There are eight motorcycle racing classes each having three rounds of racing throughout the day. Practice starts around 8.30am, with racing from around 9:00am.

Unique to the Greymouth event are the Westland Kart Club demonstrations which are spread throughout the day’s racing. These guys put on an awesome display of fast sideways action that always pleases the crowd.

Another unique attraction to our event is the Super Motard off road dirt section which sees the motocross-based machines running on the main sealed circuit with a deviation onto the off road dirt section. A technical section of berms, jumps and undulating surfaces provides a challenge for the riders.

If you are here on Saturday, take the opportunity to meet the riders and check out the wide cross-section of machinery at bike check, from 1 pm at Aratuna Freighters yard on Gresson Street.

The Greymouth Motorcycle Street Race committee is also proud to present the Greymouth Aerodrome 1/4 Mile Timed Sprints on Saturday, October 20, at the Greymouth Aerodrome from 9am.

It’s free for spectators, great viewing from around the aerodrome, although, due to safety requirements, only competitors will be allowed onto the aerodrome grounds.
