A motorcyclist is dead and another is seriously injured after a crash at the Manfeild race track in Feilding.
The two-bike crash took place about 12.30pm on Saturday, Feilding police Sergeant David Burmeister told NZ Newswire.
A 45-year-old male motorcyclist died at the scene, while the other was taken to Palmerston North Hospital by ambulance with serious leg injuries.
The dead man's name would not be released until his family - some of whom live overseas - was informed, Sgt Burmeister says.
The serious crash unit is investigating.
The crash occurred as the Wellington-based Victoria Motorcycle Club hosted the first round of its winter series at Manfeild.
