Weekend of Turmoil and Upsets at Hampton Downs

The 2017 NZ Superbike Championships
Press Release: 06 March 2017
At least two titles are already in the 2017 NZ Superbike Championships

There was massive turmoil and upsets aplenty at the final weekend of racing in this season's New Zealand Superbike Championships at Hampton Downs.

Arriving at the Waikato circuit with huge points leads, it had looked almost a formality that Whakatane's Tony Rees and Wainuiomata's Shane Richardson would go on to wrap up title wins in their respective superbike and 600cc supersport classes at the weekend's fourth and final round of the 2017 series, but, in the end, it was their main rivals who would rise up to snatch the title wins away.

The margins for error in this sport are always tight, but perhaps nobody could have predicted that last year's champion, Wellingtonian Sloan Frost, would overcome a 32.5-point deficit at the start of the weekend to win the superbike crown for a second consecutive year or that Rees' 21-year-old son Damon Rees would see his 20.5-point deficit wiped out so that he would emerge with his first national 600cc crown.

Superbike Nationas Set To Resume In Taupo

2017 NZ Superbike Championships
Press Release: February 21, 2017:

It's been quite a couple of months for New Zealand road-racing icon Tony Rees.

The 49-year-old multi-time former national road-racing champion from Whakatane took his Honda CBR1000RR to win the three-round pre-nationals Suzuki Series in the formula one/superbike class in late December.

Perhaps that was an omen of things to come because Rees also leads the Superbike class after the second of four rounds of the New Zealand Superbike Championships in Invercargill in January.
