Trev Terry / Yamaha Summer Series, Rounds 4 & 5 – Kinloch, Lake Taupo

March 18 @ 8:00 am - March 19 @ 5:00 pm

ROUNDS 4 & 5

The fourth and fifth rounds of the 22/23 Summer Series on the weekend of 18th and 19th March, will see us return to Kinloch, on the northern shores of Lake Taupo. A favorite race venue for a number of years, this holiday village location is perfect for racing, relaxing, spectating and as a starting point for exploring Lake Taupo by water. The race site is located at the Kinloch Reserve at the end of the Marina Terrace.

You’ll need to purchase a two day ramp pass and launch your ski at the Kinloch Marina in Mata Place.  A Day Pass costs $20.  There is plenty of trailer parking in the car park across the road from the marina.  Petrol is also available at the marina if required.

For accommodation options take a look at Bookabach or  AirBnb – Kinloch,  Holiday Houses- Kinloch , Bachcare – Kinloch.  The local restaurant, Tipsy Trout is  located next to the village store and is open from 9am in the weekends, serving coffee and meals.
