Club revs up plans

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS - Bryce Luff

THE Coastal Mo­tor­cy­cle Club is one of the old­est mo­tor­cy­cle groups in Aus­tralia and now its mem­bers are keen to make it one of the most mod­ern.

The Hen­der­son-based club has un­der­gone plenty of changes since form­ing in 1919.

As a not-for-profit club, most of its changes have been made thanks to the skills of its mem­bers, and im­por­tant grants and do­na­tions from the pub­lic.

Pres­i­dent War­ren Lit­tle­fair said the club now hoped to se­cure ex­tra sup­port from the cor­po­rate sec­tor to help the Cock­burn Road fa­cil­ity reach its full po­ten­tial.

Mr Lit­tle­fair said im­prove­ments to the track, play­ground, car park, toi­let blocks and land­scap­ing were among an ex­tended list of things to do.

An up­graded view­ing area is another pri­or­ity.

“It’s one of the only venues in WA where you can view the whole track from the one spot so we want to make sure peo­ple are as com­fort­able as they can be when they’re here,” Mr Lit­tle­fair said.

Cock­burn MLA Fran Lo­gan de­scribed the club as “a great in­sti­tu­tion” for the state. “It is very im­por­tant for WA,” he said. “It’s done well for close to a cen­tury but it’s strug­gled along with­out much out­side sup­port.

“Cock­burn has had is­sues with off-road mo­tor­cy­cles. This fa­cil­ity en­cour­ages peo­ple to ride in a safe area.”
