On behalf of the Ruapehu Motorcycle Club, we would like to sincerely thank the following people, as without their help, the Cold Kiwi 2018 would not have happened:
Special thanks to The Christian Riders who helped out running the gate and numerous other tasks, they also supplied the bike hoist for the burnout. Another big thanks goes out to Drury Motorcycles, Des and his team did the tyre changes for the burnout – cheers guys/gals.
The amount of tome, effort and resources put in by these guys has been huge, which we are all grateful for – Thank You!

As announced by Mat On Facebook . Cold Kiwi has an all new site !
No small effort by the club but it looks like we’re able to confirm the details for the 43rd Cold Kiwi 2018.
The site entrance is about 2.5kms west of Waiouru, heading towards Ohakune. It’s not cricket pitch flat but it’s mostly a gentle lean with some flat tops. Free draining pumice soil, a hill climb, short access road and mountain views. Most importantly we don’t believe this site will chop up and turn to mud.

In the meantime the 20 or so members of the Ruapehu Motor Cycle Club are working on getting it all set up for this year . The club relies on help from many others as well .So far the firewood is sorted and the bonfire getting close . Paper work to get the liqour licence is underway too. The grass in the paddock is well established and firm underfoot.
We have sponsors who are very generous and supply the prizes for events etc . Outstanding contribution is the brand new Nolan helmet prize for the Hill Climb Dash. Also to mention the Horopito locals who man the rail-crossing when the trains are running. Additionally there is there security team who patrol the Rally Site all night to make sure you are all safe and sound, along with medics that are on duty 24/7 with band-aids and the like. Not to mention the guys who bought the 4-wheelers to help with the gate transfers . The list goes on.
