Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

MO­TOR­BIKE rid­ers of all ages were in ac­tion as the Whit­sun­day Dirt Rid­ers held a club day on Sun­day at the Dray’s Park com­plex just out­side of Proser­pine.

Pres­i­dent of the Whit­sun­day Dirt Rid­ers Kev Burgess said there were more than 50 rid­ers in­volved on the day with vis­i­tors com­ing from Mackay, Townsville and sur­round­ing ar­eas for the race meet. “It’s al­ways good to host a club race day where our rid­ers can get the chance to com­pete against each other and vis­it­ing rid­ers. Ev­ery­one en­joyed them­selves and we have an­other dirt track event sched­uled for Oc­to­ber,” he said.

“Our com­mit­tee has found that we are able to host our own race meets this year with­out the sup­port of other clubs and the lo­cal rid­ers love rac­ing on their home track.”

Burgess said any­one who has might have a dirt bike or mini bikes in their garage to get in­volved with the club and come have a ride and en­joy the club at­mos­phere at their prac­tices ev­ery Sun­day.

The club wished to thank all the vol­un­teers, track of­fi­cials, can­teen helpers, rid­ers and spec­ta­tors that came along to make an­other great week­end of rac­ing in the Whit­sun­days.

The next club day is on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 20.
