Two-strokes back in style

TWO-STROKE motorcycles will come back to Gnudwoc Park with a vengeance this Sunday.

South Grafton Ex-Servicemen's Motorcycle Club is bracing for its biggest club weekend of the year with the Grafton Power Products Club Championship Race Day.

Major sponsor and competitor Mitch Collins has come up with a concept to spice things up on the day and attract top-class interstate riders. A 'Two-Stroke Cup' will see riders compete in 125 to 500cc in a 15-minute plus one lap moto.

"They've been doing it a little bit in the pro ranks and two strokes are making a little bit of a comeback at the moment," 26-year-old Collins said.

"Four-stroke has kind of taken over but there's still a lot of die hards out there riding two-strokes.

"So it's a bit of fun really to get everyone excited and keen to get back on the track.

"Fox Racing gave me a $500 helmet to give to the winner which has a lot of people coming to try and win. So it's definitely going to be a race to watch.

"We've got riders from Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Port Macquarie and all over."

Local budding motocross riders will learn from the best on Saturday when multiple Australian Motocross and Supercross champion Jay Marmont and his brother Ryan Marmont host an all-day coaching day at Gnudwoc Park.

While bookings are full for the sessions, spectators are more than welcome to head to the track and watch the action and meet the superstars. Read more in tomorrow's DEX.
