  • Access to Raumai for the Winter Series Round 5 A large fallen tree has blocked the road before the usual farm gate we use for accessing the paddock that we use for parking etc; for our winter races. After consultation with the farmer today, we have got permission to use another gate......located on the right immediately after the bend in the gravel section of Raumai Road. Just enter the paddock through this gate( which will be signposted) and head on up to the parking area in the the top left corner of the paddock. Please stay well away from the cows which are in a fenced off area off this paddock and treat the area with respect.C u all out at Raumai tomorrow morning.Ross M.
