Palmerston North’s Christian Hermansen holds the title of ‘King of the Capital’ when it comes to this event, with four title wins. He’s followed by two-class New Zealand Champion Jamie Larsen on two wins, with Stephen Taylor & Shaun Dickie edge hitting the top spot once.

The 9th instalment of the Windy City Showdown will take place Saturday 19th January 2019 with support from NZ Dirt Track Racing, Hermansen Transport, Inkwise Printing, Barclay Engravers & Motomuck.
