A spe­cial func­tion to be held in Novem­ber, 2014 will cel­e­brate one hun­dred years since the run­ning of the Aus­tralian Grand Prix for mo­tor­cy­cles. The race was held over a fairly rugged 60-kilo­me­tre per lap road cir­cuit in the Kirk­con­nell-Yetholme area and won by Edgar Meller rid­ing a Dou­glas. The Aus­tralian Dou­glas Own­ers Club are plan­ning their own cel­e­bra­tion, and will be stag­ing their Na­tional Rally in con­junc­tion with the GP event which will run from 5-7 Novem­ber. On Satur­day Novem­ber 8th, a func­tion to mark the GP will be held on part of the orig­i­nal track in the for­est at Kirk­con­nell. The rally base will be at the car­a­van park, with a spe­cial time trial around the Old Vale cir­cuit on Fri­day morn­ing and a dis­play of bikes in Kings Pa­rade that evening. The event will be sup­ported by the His­toric Car Club and Bathurst East Ro­tary Club. A may­oral func­tion will be held on Thurs­day evening at the Mu­seum and a cel­e­bra­tion din­ner on Satur­day evening. For all en­quiries con­tact Ge­off Fry at Ge­[email protected]­off-fry.com.au
