Local offroad racers have been successful in the second round of the 2018 New Zealand Offroad Racing Championship.
Held at Puhinui in Manukau, Waiuku’s Nick Hall made a clean sweep of his class at the event last month.

Jack Hellier from Karaka and Tony McCall of Manukau maintained their in-class points domination.
It was the first time the national championship used the new 1.2km course, which was purpose-built by Counties-Manukau Offroad Racing Club. The course has been a work in progress over the last six years. Many racers gave positive feedback to its fast straights, flowing corners and use of watercourse crossings to create spectacular jumps.

After his win, Nick carries his advantage through to the third and final northern round of the championship, the 2018 Woodhill 100 in early June.

Pukekohe’s Carl Ruiterman finished the weekend just two points shy of Hall to be second in the championship.
