2018 Cold Kiwi Motorcycle Rally
Time & Location
About The Event
Date: 31st August to 2nd September
Location: 2.5km West of Waiouru, follow the signs on the day
Lock in the weekend of August 31 to September 2, because the Cold Kiwi Motorcycle Rally is back for the 43rd edition!
For the new and uninitiated, the Cold Kiwi is a Motorcycle rally held every year on or around the slopes of Mt Ruapehu. Traditionally held over the first weekend in September, the beginning of spring often brings clear skies and chilly nights with it, sometimes it even snows.
Around June or July each year, the online shop is available to pre-purchase tickets and apparel. The cheapest way to get a ticket is via the online shop, however you can also fill out and send in an entry form, and can also buy a ticket at the gate, if you are the last minute impulse type.
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.
Entry costs for this year:
Online purchase $40 + $8 for a badge
Postal entry $43 + $8 for a badge
Gate entry $55 + $10 for a badge
(All badge purchases optional)
Trailer entry fee $20
