Time to dust of those human powered vehicles – the Victorian HPV Series is gearing up with round one on the 2015 racing calendar, starting on February 28 at Casey Fields.
President of the Casey Cardinia HPV and Cycling Club and a key organiser of the Series, Nathan Boon told the EB News Crew that the committee had attracted good interest before school started for the year:
“We’ve already received plenty of entries for our first event in 2015 including one interstate team for our event later this month – and we are really looking forward to receiving more in the final days.”
Round 1 of the Victorian HPV Series will be a 6 hour endurance event held at Casey Fields in Cranbourne.
A perfect race length to testing all student and rider abilities around the 1.6 kilometre track and a good way to introduce new students to the world of human powered vehicles. The committee are looking forward to building on a successful previous 2014 season; with a strong field of participants in Round 1 and 3 in hoping to reach and hold the title of the most entries entered in a Victorian event.
Will your school or team help us get there?
Entries for Round 1 will remain open until 5pm on Friday 20th February 2015.
The committee are also pleased to announce that Round 3 will be held in Bendigo on Saturday, August 22nd and will be a 10-hour grand prix allowing riders to compete in both day and night conditions around the Bendigo Livestock Exchange.
