Location - Rosebank Road Speedway is all of five minutes up the

solo riders would be the highlight of most seasons.
Also worth attending - Auckland solo and sidecar champs.
Best spot to sit - Seating is limited to the top of turns 1 &

Classes run - Solo's, Sidecar's, Quarter Midgets, Junior Solo's
