The annual (and legendary) Battle of the Streets meeting is held in the small town of Paeroa, and is recognised as one of the most dynamic circuits in NZ due to the fact it is actually on public roads that get closed off only for this event!
The public always turn up in their thousands for this event- and 2014 was no exception, with full grids of some of the best riders in the country(and abroad) lining up to ride this exciting circuit.
We were very happy with the bike during practice- and even happier at the conclusion of Race 1 with a satisfying 1st place. Unfortunately the second race was cancelled for safety's sake for all classes due to a major oil spill on the circuit, which all the riders knew was needed as any track becomes dangerous with the slippery stuff!
Our success in the early race secured us the Battle of the Streets 2014 title, the first cup to carry the SSR brand, and a smile to take home to our famiies before we settle into preperations for the next round of the National Championship Series to be held at Taupo in a few weeks time :)
We must say thanks to all our supporters that came through to line the fences for us over the weekend, and once again our sponsors who made the journey to see us take home a great result, and even lend a spanner when needed!
See you all in Taupo:)
