Pukekohe Car Club’s annual Speed Weekend is fast approaching.

Held on 18-19 November, the event consists of two hill climbs; a sealed road on the Saturday, and a gravel event on Sunday. This year’s tarmac event will be at Port Waikato-Waikaretu Road, which the club hasn’t used for a few years, and the Sunday will be in the traditional location of Murray Road, Pukekawa. The public is most welcome to check out the action at Murray Road but spectator access to the Port Waikato event is limited.
PCC member Jeremy Dawson said the club is great for like-minded people. “I’ve been doing it for long enough, I just love it,” said Jeremy.
“We come together, have a bit of a skid and there’s plenty of fun swapping stories afterwards.”
The competition motorsports club has a wide range of members from grass roots club level to international competitors in high profile events around the world. It was established in Franklin in 1962 and has included some well-known drivers throughout the years, including the late Peter ‘Possum’ Bourne.
