Only teams from the four Wellington centre clubs will be eligible for the title but other clubs are more than welcome to come along test yourselves.

Racing a team trial for the Wellington Centre Hope Gibbons Shield goes back to 1934 and has a lot of history.  It’s an impressive shield and  has nearly 300 past winners names engraved on individual shields on it.
