They are still to build the Natural Terrain track which should be starting soon. There are no starting gates as it's a ride park facility not a race track.
They won't be changing the parking area (pits) for a one off vintage meeting but i believe they will modify 1 of the moto tracks to suit.

Would be a pity if the pits are as far away as is stated from the tracks, as we all like to watch while working on bikes, hope they have a good think, about the fact we're there for a 3day meet

thought the ide of the split was to push it back to 2 days racing at worst ?

It was three days at coffs but it wasn't essential to be there Friday from memory. I'm sure it will be what will be essential only.

Point taken but if your travelling from interstate, you'll end up being there for 3-4 days

Hi James
This is the first year of "the split". That is from now on the Australian Titles events will be held over two events. The Pre '75 and earlier classes will run at the Classic Titles and the Pre '78, Evo, Pre '85 and Pre '90 classes at the Post Classic event. This year the Classic Titles are in Queensland while the Post Classic Titles are to be held in Tasmania later this year.

Hope this helps.

Cheers
Shaun

You will all notice a big change in the rules for 2012; the split has now taken place and there is now Classic MX for Pre 78 and older and Post Classic MX for pre 90. There are a few points that should be made so here we go
Classic MX;Everything remains effectivly the same except we are adding acceptable follow-on machines and 2 examples are the DT250B and TS400 center port models. Why? these bike are essentially the same as pre 75 bikes and cheap and available; there must be ways for people to get entry level bikes and this move is designed to make it accessable and cheap to get a bike and go racing.
In the pre 65 and pre 60 please note the frame section that will allow you to build a special easily but keep in mind you will still need period engine, forks, wheels etc and the bike can not be made using components from a later era. For example you cant use a head stock from a YZ80 in your made up frame or triple clamps from a 73 Canam.
Post Classic MX;
Pre 90 is in
Age racing in EVO
Otherwise the same as it was
Brisbane has the Classic MX Championship for 2012 and Tasmania the Post Classic
Canberra has put in for the Dirt Track and it may well be negociated to run a combined meeting for the DT alone.There is strong interest for the MX Nats for future years but as yet no proposals for the 2013 and onward events
The section 18 of the rule book has been removed and completly replaced with simpler rules that should make it a lot easier to understand

James its pre78 and everything older at classic titles and everything from 78 to 89 in post classic titles. So the answer to your question is yes 77 model bike will run at queensland this year. 2seven just got that one muddled up.

                                    2012 Classic Motocross National Championships
 

                                                               UPDATE
 

        Well we have our major sponsors in place, that is "Naming rights" and the four "Feature" sponsors which make up the new poster and programn cover. This means the promotion blitz can start in earnest.
 

        We have some class and special sponsors already but are seeking more. Sponsorships available are:-
 

         Class Naming rights which include a feature ad. in the programn adjacent to that race, the right to a fence banner and small display.  $300.00
 

         Class Naming rights with heading above the rider list for that race. $200.00
 

         Special Award such as "Best performance by a Yamaha" ,Spirit of Vintage" "Best Rat Bike" etc     $100.00
 

       
 

         Volunteers-- Anyone who can help leading up to the event, and/or during the event, or who have relevant skills or equipment, please advise me or Glenn Wollenweber [ozauto@optusnet.com.au]. We will be more specific as we get closer.
 

         Sup-regs should be out in a week, and we need to promote to  riders and public strongly to ensure it's success.
 

         Connondale and Chrystal Brook set a high standard to live up to, so we need to make every effort.
 

         It is the first under the new "split" format so drag out the older bikes and bodies. Pre60 is the "Feature class" It's also an opportunity for the Pre78 guys to be the "modern glamour" class.
 

          There will be updates as we go along
