General Discussion / Australia's First Supercross
« on: April 02, 2018, 11:45:59 AM »
Australia's first Supercross. I think it had to be late 78 at Parramatta Speedway (The Speedway by the Freeway!) I was racing my Suzuki RM400C. It rained and was as slippery as ice. What's your memory?

General Discussion / Broadford Bike Bonanza 2018
« on: April 02, 2018, 07:07:41 AM »
Just did the run down to Broadford for my first bonanza. You Victorians are totally spoiled with that complex and yet again NSW is behind the times and our local government has NFI! Was great to ride around the Broadford MX Track again although last time I rode it in 82 it went anti-clockwise but it still felt familiar and brought back great memories. I was told attendance numbers were approx 5000. Pretty impressive numbers. Attended Rosco's Mini Reunion Dinner and mini Show n Shine which was a blast with a lot of great people there. Crumpy came and put on a show at the Short Circuit track and even though he was obviously riding at 70%, his 70% was still a thrill to watch. Those old short circuit guys are fun to watch and they are as tough as nails. Watched the road riding for a while on what I thought was a beautifully undulating road circuit with great vantage points. All in all a good spoil of a weekend for me and I highly recommend it.

Due to circumstances beyond our control the Maitland track is no longer available for this round. The Smith family at Dargle have come to the rescue and are making Dargle Motocross available to us. A new Classic Bike friendly track layout has been licensed just for our club and at this meeting we'll get a chance to test it out. Online entry will be open in the next few days

Competition / Maitland is cancelled for Heaven VMX
« on: March 21, 2017, 04:58:18 PM »
We’ve just heard from the Maitland Club President. He visited the track this afternoon and it is still in terrible & unrideable shape. When they walked out onto the track their boot broke the surface and sunk up to 2-300 mm in to slop. After consulting with the president and other locals who know the track and race with us and know our bikes, it is our view that even if conditions for the remainder of the week went against forecast and the track was re-opened the track would not be in a condition suitable for an enjoyable Heaven VMX race meeting. We also feel that to prolong the decision in hope would only be wasting your time. It is better to bite the bullet and make the call.
