Awesome days racing last Saturday at Levels Raceway Timaru for the Brooklands Challenge.
Big thanks to the Classic Motor Racing Club and all the officials and marshals for a great, relaxed days racing.
Thanks to all those who raced, great turn out of bikes and cars, spring weather with sunshine and lots of smiles.
Due to current Covid regulations, all entries were pre-enter only, so awesome work to everyone for respecting this, allowing us to continue to run events in the current circumstances.
Unfortunately, the 2020 Brooklands Challenge trophy was won by the CMRC car team, great effort by the CAMS team, but we missed out by a few seconds!
Regardless of us not winning the challenge, it was a very enjoyable day for all involved, cars and bikes alike.
Thanks to Sarah Dougherty for the photos.

Next event is Saturday 26th September, CAMs Round (1) at Levels.
Entry details will be posted here on Facebook and
www.cams-racing.org.nz once we know what Covid level we are operating under.

We hope to see you there!

Great pics!!

Wasn't even aware this had taken place.

Hi All,
The club has purchased a new trailer so our old girl is up for sale.
Briford trailer good usable condition with a current rego and good tires. No WOF so is sold as is . Lights work.
It has some surface rust and a couple of patches on the sheet metal that have rusted through but nothing a couple of hours with a welder and grinder wouldnt fix.
Its still water proof and doesnt leak despite the rust.
Would easily hold 2 maybe 3 bikes and has a ramp at the back.
Grab a bargain..... offers over $500 considered or possible part trade for professional sign writing services required for our new club sign at Ruapuna .
Contact Roger O'Regan for viewing and haggling

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.
