Congratulations to Mike Tall for winning the last time event which he won on the last run in a tight battle with a few others!

An old favorite Rakaia Zig Zag Gravel Sprint is coming up on the Sunday 23rd April 2023, with a slight change due to some requirements so finishing a little earlier than we have in the past offering a chance for a new record to be set. 

It’s approximately 2 km of gravel public road flowing on a hard base on the steep country side right by the Rakaia river. 

We are at maximum capacity with 50 drivers confirmed this Sunday April 23rd the Rakaia Zig Zag Rd Gravel Sprint with some drivers on the waitlist.
Please contact us ASAP if you need to withdraw so we can let someone on the waitlist to go racing.
A reminder, documentation starts at 8:30am.
Enjoy seeing all sorts of cars and quad bikes race up one of our old favourite gravel roads.
Racing starts from around 11am.
Thanks to the Selwyn District Council, local residents, volunteers and supporters who have made this event possible.
