Riders from far and near to saddle up in the Jacaranda Dirt

GNUDWOC Park Raceway will explode into life this weekend for the Jacaranda Dirt Drags.

The 20th South Grafton Ex-Services Motorcycle Club event is expected to draw more than 50 riders from the east coast, from between Brisbane and Newcastle.

Race secretary Narelle Rankin said it was shaping as a big weekend, with a number of records predicted to fall.

"We've had a very busy build up and we've got about 50 entries," Rankin said.

"There are quite a few good riders that have entered so I think the records could be challenged.

"If any fall it'll most likely be in the mornings when the track is at its best but we've had a few fall in the afternoons as well."

All eyes will be on the Unlimited class after Kempsey's Derek Seam equalled the 8.01 second record last year. Seam will be back to challenge the title again this Sunday.

Riders will take to the track on Saturday for practice with the all competition on Sunday.

A smaller practice will be held on Sunday from 8.30am with competition to start immediately afterwards.
