Winter Racing, Round 3 – Stump Bay, Taupo – 14 October, 2023

October 14 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Jet Ski Racing Winter Racing, Round 3

Stock & 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.

Prize Giving

Trailer Launching

There is plenty of parking at the reserve and if you have a trolley you can launch your ski directly off the beach. If you need a boat ramp, the closest is around 10-15 minute ride away. Tokaanu Southern Boat Ramp is south of the venue near Turangi and Motuoapa Marina, just north of the venue.
