Get out on the track


April 28, 2018 by admin

Are you one of the many dirt bike riders riding in the scrub areas around Whyalla?

Looking for a controlled area, a prepared and watered track, full canteen and bar for after the ride and the all important presence of St John Ambulance?

Then come to the Whyalla Motorcycle Club race meetings.

The club has recently started a class where riders who haven’t raced previously, don’t have the latest bike and don’t want to take racing too seriously or would just like to give it a go, can come and ride with other like minded riders.

The clubs O grade is just for that purpose.

Whyalla Motorcycle Club event promoter Graeme Nolan said the club saw a need to cater for the riders who just want to have some fun and would enjoy the benefits riding at the track and riding against their mates.

NEW: 57-year-old Kevin McEwin riding his 250cc dirt-bike in the newly-introduced O-grade class.

“We started the O grade last race meeting as a means for the local bush riders to come have a ride and see what it’s all about without having to line up against serious racers,” Nolan said.

“There was a good turnout of riders who had a blast.”

The class is about no pressure, fun riding, whatever bike, whatever age, you come have a great day riding on a well prepared track with all the benefits of a club meeting.

Other benefits to the club days are that riders are covered by MASA insurance, if the rider is injured.

The track is fully flag marshalled and the St John Ambulance is always on hand should the unfortunate happen.

Another great benefit to the day is that once a race is finished there is the opportunity to watch some of the best riders in the state race.

The club has some of the best riders in the state competing at its meetings.

The club has pro-open, pro-lites and mini bike riders competing in various classes through the day.

These riders also compete at state level and there are a few that have competed at national level.

The club also has the ever popular vintage bike, most of the riders are also vintage and pee-wee classes, also more recently the female fast fifties.

The female fast fifties is a new class where only women ride and are on the popular “pit bikes”.

They ride on a modified track and are always looking for more riders.

The Whyalla Motorcycle Club is holding its next race meeting on Sunday, September 9 and invites all riders interested to attend.

The track is located on the Lincoln Highway, about 10 kilometres out of the city, spectator entry is free, a full canteen and bar is available as well as full amenities.

Rider sign in is at 8am, practice at 9am and racing gets underway at 10am.

Club meetings are held at the Keith Street Clubrooms fortnightly, the next one being Wednesday, September 5.

The club meetings are a family affair and start at 8pm, all riders welcome.
