Papamoa Classic  22nd Feb 2003

  

Smaller event than usual this year, 18 teams compared with 43 last year, but lots of enthusiasm,  new crews & the return of some teams we haven't seen in years.  And what an impressive support  team it was. TEAM ORIX  from Waipu Cove, with the ex champion Hayden Campbell as manager. See group photo. Just have to polish  the crews up a bit (like a little training) and we might see them up there with Paekakariki & United. These 2 teams fought every race  right up to the last race before the top overall points score gave Paekakariki the title by 1 point.  Great racing. perhaps United may have been distracted by the film crew that was filming Jason's team for a TVNZ documentary on Piha to be shown latter this year.
