Great day, great turnout and some awesome racing topped off with some great photos MJSmyth Images 😁More classic action on track! The last hitout before one of the best classic meetings on the racing calender at the end of November, the second round of the 2020 CAMS Championships started under grey skies and chilly temps. The forecast rain never eventuated, the clouds broke and we even got some sunshine. The pits were packed, a fantastic turnout, wicked bikes and six, yes SIX sidecars!

Thank you so much to the CAMS Club for letting me come and shoot for you and the support from all the Cams officials – especially Dave, Sue, Sarah, Shaun, Gary, Roger O, Layton, and the rest of the committee, Wayne, Lachlan, Logan, Martin, Roger C, and Campbell. And my MNZ officials, especially Steve and Martin, and all the other volunteers, from our team at sign on, gear check, bike scrutineering, running the grid, our epic flaggies, and everyone in the tower!

Special thanks to Jarrad and Kelly Winter for the lifts to and from the track on Friday, and the early morning pick up on Saturday morning. And to Pam and Steve for the lift home after prizegiving. Also to Martin. Thank you to my Blue Raven for her assistance with my hashtags! Big thanks to all of our flaggies for your hard work, dedication, concentration and for keeping us as safe as possible out there! Thanks also to St John’s ambulance officers, and the racers, families, support and pit crews and spectators – thank you! Special preview highlights, daily themed shots etc can be found on my work Instagram - @mjs_images_nz

My photos are available for purchase – And all photos with a letter code (N, E, RC, B, SL, SM, SD, SKE, RCE etc, are available for purchase in their original colour versions. Please private message me for further details. Please reference codes when ordering photographs. If you know the riders or those pictured, please feel free to tag them! ALL PHOTOS FROM THIS MEET HAVE NOW BEEN POSTED!! Thank you for your patience!

To the riders, if any, who came off and were injured - I am thinking of you and wish you a speedy recovery. Out of respect for your fellow riders - please don't divulge details of track accidents/injuries, especially names of those involved, on this page without express consent of the injured person. All the offs I have caught, not involving injuries, and chosen to post were done AFTER checking that the rider was okay. ***Please note – in the event of any serious incident – if I captured it, please don't ask to see my crash photos, they will be sent to the Steward or COC, and when permissable sent on, privately, to the involved parties ONLY. They will NEVER appear on any of my social media accounts. Please respect this.***

Thank you so much for the support, likes, private messages and particularly your comments on my photos, and your positive reviews on my page. And to those who offered them in person throughout the event – to say I was floored and emotional are massive understatements. They mean everything to me. <3 <3

CAMS History

Classic Action Motorcycle Sport Inc. (S.I) club was formed over 25 years ago in Christchurch, NZ, by a group of racers wanting to keep the classic bikes of yesteryear on the South Island racetracks, many of these machines were “SPECIALS”, B31’s, B50’s, etc. running parts that were not completely original to these bikes when they came out of their factories.
