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!
