The NZ Classic Motorcycle Racing Register is holding its 31st Classic Festival 2010 at Pukekohe Park Raceway, Pukekohe.

The Centenary of the famous Rudge motorcycle will be celebrated with a huge display of both racing and road machines. Included will be an ex factory 1932 Rudge which won 4 NZ Tourist Trophy races, all held on Waiheke Island in the 1930s. 

Rudge motorcycles were produced from 1911 to 1946. The firm was known for its innovations in engine and transmission design, and its racing successes. Their sales motto was "Rudge it, do not trudge it."
