Mac Park Masters
Classic Master of Mac Park
4 March, 2017 – McNamara Park, Mount Gambier
Mount Gambier Motorcycle Club hosted the Classic Master of Mac Park, where over 100 bikes rolled up from Pre-War bikes through to Period 6. David ‘Davo’ Johnson put on a great show riding Shane Zakelj’s beautifully prepared Period 5 bevel Ducati; all part of the build up to the national titles that Dave will compete in once he has done his tour of duty at the Isle of Man. Fears of the P3 700 bikes being lapped by the later Unlimited bikes didn’t happen, in fact Keith Campbell was up the pointy end with many younger bikes behind him. Good weather and a largely accident-free weekend made for an excellent meeting. The event was well run by the club and their solid group of helpers. Many stayed back for the trophy presentation and as normally is the way many opted to stay the night and head home the next day.” President Andrew Saunders said they planned to make this the “No.1 Historic Meeting in Oz.” No doubt the event will continue to consolidate and as the word gets out people will know that the Mac Park track now is hosting a second Historic Only event after the Historic Motor Cycle Racing Register of SA has held the state historic titles down at Mac Park for the last 15 years!
