Old Bike Australasia - - • BATHURST CIRCUIT • BROADFORD BONANZA • HRRC 2019 -

Con­tin­u­ing its an­nual mi­gra­tion, the 2019 His­toric Road Rac­ing Cham­pi­onships will be pro­moted by the His­toric Com­pe­ti­tion Mo­tor­cy­cle Club of Western Aus­tralia at the Col­lie Mo­tor­plex from 27-30 Septem­ber. The 4-day event will use the new 2.55km cir­cuit, with 27th Septem­ber be­ing a pri­vate prac­tice day. HCMCWA Club Pres­i­dent Bob Humphreys said, “We’re very proud to run the fourth Aus­tralian His­toric Road Rac­ing Cham­pi­onship in WA and we have run three be­fore. The up­grades made to the Col­lie Mo­tor­plex will be very suitable for his­toric bike rac­ing. The lo­cal Cham­ber of Com­merce are get­ting right be­hind us and it will be one of the best events to oc­cur in Col­lie for a long time. It will take place dur­ing Queen’s Birth­day week­end and we are go­ing to do our best to en­cour­age in­ter­state rid­ers to take part and we have meth­ods in place to as­sist in trans­port­ing bikes for com­peti­tors. All classes of His­toric bikes will be in­cluded. Let­ters have been sent to all states invit­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est from rid­ers of solo ma­chines and side­cars. We have a re­li­able trans­porter who would be happy to ar­range a round trip for sea con­tain­ers with crated ma­chines. Clubs who send a con­tainer with 10 or more bikes will re­ceive an as­sis­tance of $1,000 to help with travel costs.”

“Col­lie is lo­cated 200 km south of Perth CBD, in a re­gion famed for it’s scenic forested hills, fruits and wine. The Town and peo­ple of Col­lie are get­ting right be­hind this event. They are work­ing to have a Fes­ti­val week­end, with var­i­ous at­trac­tions. The race cir­cuit is lo­cated 15 km South East of the town.” MWA CEO, Rick Gill said; “It means a lot to MWA to have this event come to our state. It’s a na­tional cham­pi­onship and the ul­ti­mate des­ti­na­tion for his­torics. It also gives a chance for our lo­cal rid­ers to show off their skills at a ma­jor event and go for the ti­tle. The Col­lie Mo­tor­plex is ide­ally lo­cated and it has re­cently had an ex­ten­sion which will make it one of the most ex­cit­ing tracks in WA. It’s also worth not­ing, the HCMC of WA have done an ex­cel­lent job in the past of run­ning and pro­mot­ing the cham­pi­onship and I’m sure they will raise the stan­dard once again. We re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate hav­ing a ma­jor cham­pi­onship here and I’m sure it will at­tract many spec­ta­tors come race week­end,” For more in­for­ma­tion about the His­toric Com­pe­ti­tion Mo­tor­cy­cle Club of WA and news of the event see http://his­tor­i­crac­ing.asn.au/
