It’s been a pleasure to have been the event manager for the Taupo1000 Offroad Race over the past 14 years and bringing to you some 7 Taupo1000 run events.
Thanks to you and the event team the event has grown into an international sized race meeting. This has always been the driving force behind our efforts. The team has reached it’s goal and are very proud of the acheivement. We have meet and talked to some great people from all over the world and here in New Zealand. You all have been the high-light of this event.
It is with regret that after the past 14 years of running the event the team is standing down and leaving it to the Auckland Offroad Racing Club to carry on. The event is just to big to manage as a volunteer running it on behalf of a club deal. The cost to the team has become larger as the event has grown. All good things must come to an end. Its much cheaper to race the event than put it together.
We believe that the team has left the event on an International high that is now so-well known around the world.
The new caretakers from the Auckland Offroad Racing Club are
Ernie Hogg and Greg Carrington-Hogg Their contact details can be found on the Auckland Offroad Racing web site.
We wish the new team all the very best and we will look forward to spectating and seeing you all at the next Taupo1000.
