It’s official, New Zealand’s premier motorcycle rally - the Burt Munro’s Challenge- will be back in 2022 for its 16th year.
Set down to take place in the second week of February (Feb 9-13 to be precise) there was concern over dates earlier this month when a clash was discovered with Southern Field Days which is also set to run over the same week in Gore.
The 2022 Burt Munro Challenge kicks into action with a track day at Teretonga Park on Wednesday the 9th and concludes with the Invercargill Street Races on Sunday the 13th.
The iconic beach races held in Oreti Beach are scheduled for Friday the 11th of February.
Once again the Burt Munro Challenge Rally site will be at Oreti Park outside if Invercargill. Passes will go on sale from October 1st 2021 with an all access pass (which includes camping, access to all events and more) costing $120 with cheaper options also available.
Book your leave now, as always, it’s gonna be one hell of a week!
