Sponsorship:

Monday Night Racing is generously supported by Midway Motors Dunedin. Chris Henderson, managing director at Midway Motors is a well-loved member of the Cycling Otago community, who has always had a knack for supporting racing and developing younger riders.

We deeply appreciate the continued support Chris provides in the club, and we hope that our riders choose to support Midway Motors in return.

Marshalling:

Every round of MNR requires three volunteers to marshal a corner of the circuit.

Our racing can only go ahead and thrive while we have people willing to offer to fill these positions.

Race Managers and Marshal’s will receive a points allocation at the end of the season (10 rounds) based on an average of their racing results. (points awarded for a maximum of two events only per RM and marshal.
