Matarangi Beach Enduro Race
05/03/2022 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pmFree – $125
We are excited to finally announce the First Round of the 2022 Summer Series on Sunday 5th March at Matarangi Beach, jet ski racing with the thundercats. This stunning beach on the Coromandel Coast has it all; a long surf beach, perfect for swimming and a big sheltered harbour. Vehicles are allowed on the beach. Bring a gazebo and pickup a tasty lunch from the bakery at the small shopping centre up the road.
Racing with Thundercat Racing New Zealand is always fun. This year they will complete their short course racing off the beach before the Enduro event. Come early and watch the crazy speeds the boats reach and the antics of the drivers. It’s a great spectator sport.
AND ….. there will be spot prizes on the day and prize money for place-getters. So make sure you stick around for prizegiving after the event!!
Membership fees are due at the start of the new race season. Your very first race event with JSRNZ is complementary, but after that the cost of membership is $20 for Individuals and $30 for Family membership (to qualify for a Family membership both members must reside at the same address).
The 2021 Race Licences have now expired. A Day Licence is included in the event registration fee. The cost of the Full Annual Race Licence is $150 (and a full medical exam). Please go to our website to find out more: https://jetskiracingnz.com/membership/license-application-form/
