The first round was held in Palmerston North on September 26. Drivers compete in four short course laps. Points are added together from both rounds and the person with the highest amount of points win.
This is the second year the club has run the ladies race, where drivers compete in four short course laps. Jesseka says the only requirements to participate is being able to drive a vehicle registered under Oranz (Off Road Association of New Zealand).
She says the trophies for the events are sponsored by local businesses.
"The trophies for the top three are sponsored by Energy City Motors. They are also sponsoring the trophies for second and third for the ladies race. Dan's Tractor Repairs in Hāwera is sponsoring the ladies race first place trophy."
