Winter Racing, Round 1 – Hannah’s Bay, Rotorua – 15 July, 2023


Jet Ski Racing Winter Racing, Round One,

Hannah’s Bay – Rotorua

This venue will be home to Round 1 of the 2023 Winter Enduro Series on Saturday 15th July!  Situated on the quiet, beautiful Eastern shore of Lake Rotorua, it is only ten minutes to the city centre. It is a perfect venue for racing and a great venue for spectators, with plenty of parking, public toilets, a playground for the kids and barbeque facilities.

Stock and modified and skis all race together in Enduro events, providing an easy introduction to racing for new riders. You simply follow the leader. Points are allocated to the riders within their appropriate class to establish the placings. We will be running both runabout and pole ski classes on the day.

Come along, and enjoy a great day out!

What You’ll Need

You’ll need a full-length wetsuit, gloves, boots, helmet, windbreaker or tour coat.  Apparently, fleecy kitchen gloves under your racing gloves help keep your hands dry and insulated against the cold.  And don’t forget to bring your beanie, towels and warm clothes for afterwards.

The Venue

To find the venue take Lee Road, just before the airport and the entrance to the reserve is at the end of the road on the right.  Launching is available from the reserve.  You’ll need to bring your own food and refreshments for the day, as we don’t have a food trailer or coffee cart in attendance.  If you’re looking for a weekend away, All Seasons Holiday Park is virtually opposite the entrance to the reserve.
