Flying fun at Maclean dirt track

THE MACLEAN Dirt Bike Club held round 1 of its Club Championships on Sunday.

Riders from all ages competed at the Maclean Motorcycle Park, Townsend in perfect conditions according to club president Colin James.

Not that the weather was ever going to have a say on whether the riders rolled out for the opening event of the popular competition.

“We had a fantastic turnout, we had between 70 and 80 riders on the day,” James said.

“There were plenty of good races throughout the day in ideal conditions.”

Riders from four-year-olds through to over-35s were on display during the day with two demonstration classes.

A senior’s social class was also on the card for those who enjoy having a social ride rather than competitive racing.

James said members were already looking forward to the club’s next meeting on April 24 which is an opportunity for not so serious riders to test their ability on the track.

“The 24th is our Recreational Day or practice day where anyone can have a go on the track...as long as they are licensed,” he said.

“It will be the third time we have introduced a social class event which has been very successful.”
