Rid­ers on track for first race of sea­son

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

LOOK­ING for some dirt ac­tion this week­end?

Some of the state’s best rid­ers will con­verge on Her­vey Bay’s mo­tocross track this Sun­day for the first race of the lo­cal club’s sea­son.

The club is an­tic­i­pat­ing a big turnout this meet, ahead of next month’s first round of the Shell Ad­vance Sun­shine State se­ries, which is be­ing held on the lo­cal sand track.

“Last year we had about 130 rid­ers prior to the Shell so we be­lieve it will be about the same this Sun­day,” the club’s spokes­woman said.

“Most rid­ers like to get a bit of prac­tice in on the tracks be­fore they race on it at the Shells.”

The Shell Ad­vance Sun­shine State se­ries draws rid­ers from all over the state, New South Wales and in­ter­state and will be held on March 12–13.

Nom­i­na­tions are open for this event via www.nom­i­nate.com.au.

The club is also host­ing a round of the Go Girls Aus­tralia se­ries on April 2–3 and it has been con­firmed this week the club has se­cured the last round of the Queens­land ti­tles on Au­gust 13–14.

“This is a great coup for the club and the lo­cal area to be able to host the fi­nal round of the Queens­land ti­tles at our home track.

“Usu­ally about 350 rid­ers take part and they bring their fam­i­lies and sup­port crew, so this will be great for ev­ery­one.”

Lo­cal rid­ers are wel­come this Sun­day.

Sign-on starts from 7.30am and rac­ing from 9am. All rid­ers must pro­vide a vol­un­teer to help on Sun­day for about one hour. The club is hold­ing a work­ing bee on Satur­day.
