A matchless experience
AJS/Matchless Jampot Rally
6-8 November, 2015 – Kelso, NSW
After rally check in on the Friday at the Gold Panner Caravan Park we were taken to the National Motor Racing Museum at Mount Panorama by coach and welcomed to a tour and nibbles by the staff and a formal welcome by the Mayor of Bathurst, Gary Rush. Saturday saw a beautiful morning with all 64 entrants embarking on a ride to Sofala and then on to Hill End for lunch – a 180km round trip. Through the beautiful backdrop of the surrounding hills and valleys, despite the age of some of the bikes and hills traversed it was a very successful ride with judging being done by bike entrants at the Hill End lunch stop. For those who were not riding, a coach was again available to follow the riders. Dinner and the presentation was at the Bathurst RSL with a great meal and story of the first motor cycle Grand Prix in 1914 and following years. As this was not a concourse event, judging was done by entrants, obviously bike enthusiasts who have travelled to ride and are there for a fun time and bike ride rather than show and shine. Sunday saw us heading into the hills once again to Yetholme for a mid morning snack provided by the progress association and the grand prix circuit discussed at the dinner with entrants being encouraged to ride the old track, although it is gravel a great deal of the riders took the opportunity.
