Mr VMX Series – 2003…..2013….10 YEARS…..10 SEASONS… !!!

  The Final Hurrah (Meeting & Prize-Giving) was a fitting end to a fantastic 10 years of VINTAGE MOTOCROSS RACING.

 Andy Christie had somehow managed to secure a superb venue at the end of the Makirikiri Valley road at Robbie & Karyn Cummins property, Those smiles on everybody’s face in the group photo carried on thru out the day and even a patch of rain couldn’t dampen their enthusiasm.

 There was some close racing in all classes with only a hand full of points covering the top 3 in most classes. Team managers were spotted converged around the computer working out strategies to ensure victory for their respective riders.

 The Prize-Giving that followed would have to be the highlight of the day/season/year and suitably recognised the winners, contributors and ‘GOOD BASTARD’s of this sport and our VMX family.
