The Australian and N.Z Summer of racing is nearly upon us!

September 28, 2015

2015 has been a huge year so far in the development of Carl Cox Motorsport, with fantastic results across the U.K and Europe for all of our teams, with UK riders Dennis/Leon/Fagan competing with consistant podiums in the Ducati Tri-Option Cup on board our P&H prepared machines, Mike"The Spike" Edwards showing the way in the classic racing, and the Kiwi duo of Colin/Robbie performing brilliantly with the sidecars in our first year of the Isle of Man TT,and F1&F2 World Championships.

 

The season is coming to an end in the northern parts of the globe but that means that the southern summer is just around the corner- and we've got some spectacular racing coming up across NZ and Australia over the festive season!

 

The weekend of October 24-26 brings about the largest post-classic meeting in New Zealand- formally known as the Barry Sheene International,the event has been re-branded for 2015 as the "Shorai Batteries International Motorcycle Classic". The event will see riders from both NZ and Australia ( and a few from the UK) competing on machinery before the days of traction control and other electronic wizardry on some very exotic machinery still capable of over 250 KPH at the Hampton Downs circuit just outside of Auckland.

 

This will be the first international journey for the 1989 Carl Cox Motorsport  GSXR1100 after it's amazing result at the 2015 Phillip Island Classic with rider Michael Neeves- this time the bike will be piloted by Melbourne based Dean Oughtred, who has become a bit of a well known personality with his exploits aboard his usual bike, the very cool Honda CR750 that he currently holds multiple period 4 titles with,as well as riding the big Gixxer at the Barry Sheene Festival of speed at Eastern Creek and multiple meetings across Australia earlier in the year.

 

This will be a great weekend's racing with the feature race of a full grid of 40 top riders for the International challenge :)
