THE BURT MUNRO CHALLENGE

Six racing events over four days and the largest motorcycle rally in the southern hemisphere.

BURT MUNRO CHALLENGE

2022 Burt munro challenge - Cancelled

The Burt Munro Challenge Committee has made the tough decision to cancel the 2022 event. This decision has been made in light of the Government's COVID-19 Protection Framework, and uncertainty around being able to hold large events over the summer. We know that you will be as disappointed as us the event has been cancelled and we wish to thank you for your continued support of the Burt Munro Challenge.

We look forward to delivering you the event in 2023 when there is more clarity around hosting major events in New Zealand. 

Lock in 8 - 12 February 2023 as we'll be roaring back into town full throttle then! 

Craig Hyde
Burt Munro Challenge Chairman
