Fantastic News Team .... we are all go again for 2020 !!! Cant wait !! 🥳🥳

Morning Everyone,
Day 1 of the lockdown, hope you all stay safe and we beat this bloody virus.
Based on government advice CAMS have had no choice but to cancel Championship Round 6 at Ruapuna on the 4th 😞
MNZ have also cancelled ALL permits for the lockdown period . Hopefully it wont get extended.

On the plus side you now have quality time with your race machines to get them in tip top condition 👍

Look after yourselves, stay safe, be kind and make sure you're looking out for for any vulnerable fellow racers, friends, neighbours and family.

Regards
The CAMS Committee

    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.
