Thanks for the great pics of a great day MJSmyth Images 👍📅 CAMS Championship Series Round 6
📍 Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Christchurch

Despite rain being forecast through the morning, it had started to clear before we even got through sign on. In the end we had a warm, overcast day with light winds only picking up in the afternoon. Many a racer packed the pits, and it was lovely to have such a relaxed and cruisey day to shoot the classics which were on show.

Special thanks to everyone involved with the CAMS Club and committee members - especially Red, Eth, Gaz, Laz, Sarah, Shaun, Stu, Bailey, Logan, Roger O, Wayne, Lachlan, Martin, Roger C, and Campbell. And to the onsite MNZ Officials, Bob, Sandra, Roy and Martin, thank you for keeping us as safe as possible, and all the other volunteers including Brett and Lara in timing, our team at sign on, gear check, recovery crews, tower officials, bike scrutineering, running the grid, starters, food and drink vendors (yes Steve, I mean you!) and our epic flaggies, who always do such a great job, thank you for your hard work, dedication, and concentration! Thanks also to St John’s ambulance officers on site, Christchurch Hospital, the racers, families, support and pit crews and spectators – thank you!

Fantastic to share the track again with Clint Thambi (Mad Angles Photography), check out his FB and Instagram pages for pics from the day too! Special preview highlights, daily themed shots etc from me on the day can also 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 happen to have 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.
