Rid­ers gear­ing up for Club Cham­pi­onships

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sports Club is gear­ing up for the Club Cham­pi­onships next week­end.

Whit­sun­day Raceway will host the ac­tion-packed event, with rid­ers from Townsville and Mackay set to com­pete in round 2 of the four round se­ries.

Whit­sun­day Mo­to­sports Club pres­i­dent An­drew Auld backed his rid­ers to do well come Au­gust 16-17.

“They’d be high [the club’s chances]. We’ve got some good lo­cal rid­ers around at the mo­ment,” he said.

“We haven’t done a great deal of rid­ing lately so every­one is re­ally keen to get back on the track. We will get a strong crowd up from Townsville and Mackay so we should see a lot of good, com­pet­i­tive rac­ing.” Auld said home track knowl­edge would count for lit­tle now most of north Queens­land’s rid­ers had raced on the course.

“A lot of the other guys have rid­den on the track too. Every­one knows it now so it will come down to who’s the fastest on the day,” he said. Round 3 is set for Septem­ber 7 while the se­ries will con­clude with round 4 on Novem­ber 16. Round 1 was held in April.

In other news, the Mackay Drift­ing Club at­tended the ra- ce­way at the week­end, with more than 40 cars com­pet­ing.

The event fea­tured a rare night run on Satur­day, which by all ac­counts proved espe- cially en­ter­tain­ing.
