Our club is now in its 4th year and on the back of running a successful 2016 Southland Indoor Champs we will be holding it again this year.
Although we are a long way from anywhere we are achieving around 25 cars on a club night.
Our racers are excited to make this event happen again and are looking forward to meeting some travelling carpet racers.
The link below will take you to the events facebook page.

Guys, is this for Indoor On-road or Indoor Off-road?
And what classes will you be running, if either or both on-road and off-road are being run at the same event.

I'm sure we could find someone for you to stay with. I'll put the word out on our FB group. If you fly in we can sort airport pickups for you too. In the mean time this video might help give you a feel for the event.

The Southland Indoor Champs is done and dusted. It was humbling to have racers from all over the South Island attend our race meeting. They came from Marlborough, Canterbury, South Canterbury and Otago.
We had 47 cars over 7 classes and I thought the day was magic. Tough competition and a lot of new guys experiencing racing for the first time. Our club are extremely chuffed with the positive feedback. I will attach some images below of the event and the results. Thank you so much to the Otago club for running their lap counting computer for this event.
Its also my pleasure to reveal our little club in Invercargill has secured all the funding and sponsorship needed to purchase the latest and new RC4 lap counting system with club transponders.
Good times ahead.
