Gnudwoc Park raceway to come alive

FOLLOWING on from being a huge success at the Grafton Show, the South Grafton Ex-Services Motorcycle Club will host the first round of the Clarence Valley Challenge Motocross Series.

This is an inter-club series between the Maclean Dirt Bike Club and the South Grafton Ex-Services Motorcycle Club and this Sunday will see the Gnudwoc Park raceway come alive with motocross enthusiasts from both clubs.

About 100 riders from the two clubs have already pre-entered the meeting.

The event will have riders from the 50cc 4-under-9 years demonstration class through to the Senior Open class, along with the popular over-35s.

The feature race for the day will be the 20-minute motocross for the Open All Powers.

The two rounds of the Clarence Valley Challenge will be a fundraiser for the Westpac Rescue Lifesaver Helicopter with a donation being made from every rider’s entry fee.

The second round of the Clarence Valley Challenge will be held July 25 at the Maclean Motorcycle Park, Townsend.

Sign on will commence at 6.30am on Sunday.

There are plenty of great viewing areas for spectators to see all the racing action. Canteen facilities will be available and admission is by a gold coin donation.

The South Grafton Ex-Services Motorcycle Club is also holding a free Come and Try Day for riders who would like to get an insight into the sport and have an opportunity to ride the motocross track.

Our club coach will be there to assist and guide competitors and all senior and junior riders are welcome.

The Come and Try Day is May 22/23.

Bookings for the day are essential as there is a limit to the number of riders. Contact Bruce or Narelle Rankin on 6642 5977.

The next event on the club calendar will be round 5 of the North Coast Motocross Series on June 19/20.

Entries for this event are now open and riders need to pre-enter with entries closing on June 9.

Entry forms are available at www.sgemcc.com.au or by phoning race secretary Narelle Rankin.
