‘Bet­ter than clock­work’: Watts

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

High-qual­ity rac­ing, per­fect spring weather and rel­a­tively seam­less op­er­a­tion and or­gan­i­sa­tion have com­bined to make Hor­sham’s pre­sen­ta­tion of Aus­tralian Mo­tocross Cham­pi­onships a suc­cess.

Hor­sham Mo­tor­cy­cle Club spokesman Kenny Watts said the week-long event at Dooen Recre­ation Re­serve had been op­er­at­ing ‘bet­ter than clock­work’.

“It’s just awe­some in Hor­sham. We’ve turned the weather on, turned the rac­ing on, turned ev­ery­thing on. We’re re­ally pumped with how it’s all go­ing,” he said.

The KTM cham­pi­onships, which fea­ture world-class ju­niors from across Aus­tralia and be­yond, rate as one of the largest par­tic­i­pa­tion elite mo­tor­cy­cle events in the coun­try.

Cham­pi­onship rac­ing, fea­tur­ing rid­ers aged from seven to 16 and with com­peti­tors from New Zealand, New Cale­do­nia, Es­to­nia, Thai­land and In­done­sia as well as Aus­tralia started at the week­end and will con­tinue un­til Fri­day.

Mr Watts said spec­ta­tor numbers had been good but re­minded Wim­mera peo­ple that at­ten­dance was free.

“This is a rare op­por­tu­nity to see some of the world’s best young mo­tocross rid­ers tak­ing on one of the best tracks in Aus­tralia – and it’s free,” he said.

“If you’re on the Henty High­way, driv­ing past Dooen and you no­tice that there’s some­thing quite big hap­pen­ing at the re­serve then don’t hes­i­tate – come in and have a look and see what all the fuss is about.”

Rac­ing con­tin­ues today, to­mor­row and Fri­day from 9am.
