There is one front row parking spot available for this meeting. $110
These spots have an unhindered view of the track right from your camp

There is also four second row spots available right behind the front row at $70 each.

Once these spots are taken everybody else will either be in the pits or the lower paddock which will be free

UPDATE: Last front row spot has been taken by Lincoln representing Qld. So we have 3 NSW, 3 QLD and 4 VIC teams on the front row. Some say that's all the Vic's will win, Some say ....well that's another story.

There is four second row spots still available. The four that have gone are all Queenslanders. Come on NSW have a crack for your club and take up the remaining four spots

* What terrain is the track, ie, what tyres to use?

* What would be the gap between class races if I wanted to run, Pre 82, Pre 85, modern & Over 55 ?

Hi John. The club will work out a race order at entry close. Heaven run junior races to minimize back to back races. And they very well understand back to back and will wait a reasonable time for all to participate. Enter champ, it's the best meet on the calander

This event is looking to really be gaining some traction. It was awesome last year on a very vintage friendly track and this year the Victorians and Queenslanders seem to be rallying troupes to try and knock NSW off. I like their optimism ;D

* What terrain is the track, ie, what tyres to use?
John it is a modern track but no one seemed to have major issues with it last year. The track is prepped to suit our older bikes and bodies. We ran Pre75 to modern last year. if you have a look at the VMX state of origin facebook page there is some video of a '73 YZ250 setting a scorching lap and on the Hastings Valley MC Club WEB page a very good track tour video. I will try to post links tonight

* What would be the gap between class races if I wanted to run, Pre 82, Pre 85, modern & Over 55 ?
You can run your modern in >55 or you could run your VMX in >55 and your modern in >45.
The program schedule is arrived at after entries closed like most meetings (except possibly stable club days) we will try to avoid back to backs and this meeting schedule is fairly relaxed so we run a reasonably good pace to allow for stoppages etc
It you bring 6 bikes and enter 7 classes then you must expect back to backs. Your selected classes for example would not follow each other but I can not guarantee you may not have one back to back if you enter three bikes in the maximum number of classes

It appears you could enter your bikes in all of the following
Pre82
Pre85
Pre90 (double up on the Pre85)
>55 on the Modern or Pre85
>45 on the modern
Open on the modern
 :o
If you did that expect back to back more than once. A pretty big commitment as well ;)

What is the break-up, state wise, for entries?

Are goggle tear-offs allowed?

we are over a 100 riders with 5 busy days of early bird entries to go.

NSW >45
Vic >23
Qld >33

Should be interesting. The cane toads and Mexicans are invading ;D . All the teams have some talent and depth!  8) 8) 8) 8)
