Saturday 16th December:
Yes folks its that time of year again when we head north for the SERIES FINAL of the Troy Lee Designs NZDH season to the famed Dome Valley course. The course is probably the most intense track on the circuit and certainly one of the quickest in terms of average speed. The hard clay surface providing grip on the center and marbles on the edges. Riders will looking to keep it clean and minimizing any mistakes.
The AKDH club have put plenty of work into the track over the last month and looking at the track preview from the Bethell Brothers – its fast.
Check out the preview here:
The track is access from Kraak Road which is 12 minutes north of Warkworth on SH1 – at the top of the hill there is a tricky left turn which will be sign posted – once on that road – follow your nose to the top of the track. The access road is steep and rough so if your vehicle is low, leave it at the top and get a ride down in a shuttle van. The shuttles also use the access road – so try not be late as it is hard to pass in places. Parking is also pretty tight at the bottom, so be aware.
At the end of racing we have the prize giving for round 5 – followed immediately by prize giving for Overall Series placings.
Take plenty of water as it’s as hot as a four-peckered billy goat on acid !
