2007 Events

2007 Burt Munro

The Burt Munro Challenge was established as a tribute event to celebrate Burt Munro and the ongoing success of the feature film, The World’s Fastest Indian. More than 2,000 bikers registered for last year’s rally and even more are expected when the second event is held in and and around Invercargill from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 November.

Oreti Park will again be the rally site for this year’s Challenge, with facilities including food stalls, rally merchandise, an enormous marquee equipped with bar facilities and a stage for live entertainment on the Friday & Saturday nights.

This year’s Racing events will kick off with Beach Races at Oreti Beach on Friday night with a Twilight meeting including NZ titles up for grabs. The action continues on Saturday with Sprint racing at Teretonga and then Oreti Park Speedway Spectacular, both venues neighbouring the Rally site (Oreti Park).

The Wyndham Street Racing will again conclude this year’s Challenge on the Sunday. A Toy Run has been added to this year’s programme which will run from the Rally Site to Wyndham on the Sunday. All proceeds to local charity for underprivileged families.
