The Victoria Motorcycle Club was formed in 1971 and is Wellingtons’ premier road racing club. The “Vic Club” (or “VMCC”) is involved mainly in Road Racing, Miniature Road Racing (also known as Moto4 or Buckets) and Track Training Days.

Our major event is our annual 4 round race series held at Manfeild starting in May and ending in September.  We also run a number of track / training days during the year.  Explore our track day and racing pages for more information and entry forms.

Nice write up Jake Keller! ... See MoreSee Less

Well Round 2 of the VMCC winter series started with a bang! Ermm or was that a bang-crash? My freshly repaired and painted fairings lasted all of one morning qualifying session before a silly error on my part left me with yet more fibreglassing and painting to do. Luckily lots of trial and error has sped this process up significantly. The rest of the day went relatively smoothly from there, although starting off the back of the grid in the sprint races left me with a lot of work to. Between this and trialling some new suspension parts I really struggled to find a rhythm throughout the day. My times were a bit down on the last round and well off my best. Despite this I still managed some decent results and get a bit more of a handle on the new parts and the direction I need to take with them. I trailed the leading group in the first two trophy races with my bike feeling fractionally alien but showing a lot of promise once I get it set up. These were quite lonely races as I seemed to be in my own bracket of lap times. The sprint was a bit more interesting as i had 6 laps to move up the pack as much as I could. I wasn’t really able to post a good result due to this last place start it was still an enjoyable race with no pressure and lots of passing! The rain came down after this and though i am normally quite comfortable in the wet it has been a while since I’ve been on a wet track and i really struggled with rear grip, especially through the dreaded turn 3 -"splash" (the scene of my undoing in the morning qualifying...). I managed to come through off the back in the sprint race to 4th and finished the last trophy race in 3rd, a decent turn around after the morning’s struggles. a big thanks to all my sponsors who have been helping out; My dad Brett with Tauranga Marine Charters, TSS Red Baron motorcycles, Supreme Balustrades and 7 Electrical Now, back to my fibreglassing.....

Race Report VMCC Round 2 Junior Trophy Qualified 4th, 1.31.1 Race 1 finished 8th with best lap of 1.29.556 Race 2 finished 7th with best lap of 1.30.596 Senior Trophy Qualified 14th, 1.16.031 Race 1 finished 15th with best lap of 1.15.601 Race 2 finished 14th with best lap of 1.17.752 F2 Sprint Qualified 14th, 1.16.502 Race 1 finished 8th best lap of 1.15.266 It was a good start to the second round of the Victoria Motorcycle Club's Winter Series! The sun was out in the morning for qualifying and the first couple of races. Rain set in the afternoon. Qualifying with the Hyosung GT250R in Junior Trophy was great, Qualified in 4th on the grid, and in Senior trophy and F2 with the GSXR600 was 14th position in both classes! Race 1 started off good with a quick start off the line, but got pushed out wide on turn one and lost a few places which I couldn't make back! During the second race had a pretty big scare coming out of the last corner, I was trying to go around the outside of someone and hit the rumble strip on a full lean, but luckily managed to save in and only gave away 1 place! I had a lot of trouble with the Gsxr with poor tyre wear and grip during the entire day. This slowed me down quite a bit and wasn't able to push for a few more positions. Will be trying to get this sorted before the next round! Here is a link to watch some of the racing from the weekend, they also do live streaming. www.ctaslive.co.nz/CtasLiveRecordings.aspx All in all it was a good day, had a great time! Once again A big shout out to my sponsors Kiwibike Insurance Switched Electrical Stewarts Electrical for helping me race, couldn't have made it there without them!

OFFICIALS & FLAG MARSHAL TRAINING!
MNZ are running officials training in Palmerston North this coming Saturday, 18 June from 9.30am.

The first two hours of the day will cover Flag Marshal training. (those wanting to do just this, can come for the morning only)

Once completed, you will be issued with a Flag Marshal warrant. At sometime in the future we expect that the tracks (like Manfeild) and MNZ will require us to have 'trained' marshals at all of our events. So the more people that can complete the training - the easy it will be for us to run our events.

The warrant will also allow you to help at other tracks, and other clubs will know that you have the right skills to help them.

If you are able to come along and help out the club, please email us, or complete the form here: www.mnz.co.nz/officials/training-seminars. You need to be nominated by a club, so please let us know also: volunteer@vicclub.co.nz.
