Moto Academy NZ Event Reports



Thank you to all our supporters and suppliers

Once again as another successful year of racing and coaching comes to a close (with the new one just around the corner!!) I would like to thank all of the people and businesses that have helped us out this year 2012:

Mel Jackson: a good mate, a good mechanic and a pretty good rider motivator too!  Cheers mate. Same again next year??

Peter Clifford: thanks for the support from Europe, the chance to host Hafiq and be a small part of Rookies Cup. Same again next year??

Greg Percival: while not able to support us the same as in the past, Greg has always been there for advice and assistance.

Phil Snowdon: also a good mate, even though along with Mel he has moved to the dark south (Chistchurch). See you again next season.

Stuart (Pretzel): a talented automotive painter and now a good mate, Pretzel has been painting the bikes from day 1 and always does a fantastic, quick and cheap job. Unfortunately for us all Pretzel has developed MS and is no longer able to work as he once did. I wish him all the best and will catch up the next time we are at Manfeild.

W White Wholesale and Eurotred NZ: Ross and the crew have been supporters from day 1 of Moto Academy NZ and have never failed to come through with the right product at the right time and the right price. Also a huge thanks for selecting Tyler as the inaugural recipient of the Bridgestone NZ scholarship. We hope that we will do you proud and we will always be with Silkolene Oils, NGK Sparkplugs, Shoei Helmets, RK chains, and Bridgestone tyres.

Interislander: without Hanna and now Liz at Interislander we would probably have been unable to put together our programme. We are eternally grateful to your assistance and hope that it will continue.

Race Supplies: thanks go to Kevin for advice, information, great parts supply and good prices.

Dold Industries: again, another supplier that has been with us since day 1. Our bikes always stop the hardest with SBS brakes and our riders are protected with Forcefield back and chest protectors.

Crown Kiwi Enterprises: while not so active with us this season, Crown Kiwi was on board from day 1 and Tyler was wearing Alpinestars equipment supplied by Crown Kiwi.

Henshaw Signs: Thanks to Mark and his crew the bikes and the trailer were looking a million dollars.

Just Fairings: thanks to Glenn for supplying fantastic quality, light and strong fairings in great time for a fair price. Cheers.

Motomart: thanks to Pat and the crew for support and dyno time.

Blue Wing Honda New Zealand: thanks to Paul for the support and paddock clothing. Helped make us look at least semi professional.

Victoria Motorcycle Club: thanks again to the club for continuing to support Moto Academy NZ. I hope that we will get where we all think we should. Cheers.

Hafiq and Dato Azmi, Tyler and Jason Lincoln, Glen, James and Kyle and all the other 125GP racers this season. I really hope that we can build on our success and bring on a new cohort of young riders and take the NZ title next year.
