Come-and-try club day

Busselton Dunsborough Times

The Southern Capes Motorcycle Club is revving up for its come-and-try day on Sunday, February 25.

Motocross bikes, mini bikes, farm and road trail bikes are encouraged to try the club’s national-class motocross track.

The invitation also extends to non-members and new members who do not hold a WA motorcycling licence.

The club caters for riders of all ages and abilities, from children straight off training wheels to veteran riders, and offers several classes of racing including nippers, juniors 65cc, juniors 85cc, junior lites, senior lites, senior opens, veterans and a women’s class.

Located in Jindong, SCMCC have held open events, junior and senior State Championships and Australian Quad National titles, as well as the classic vintage Australian titles. Mitchell Blakers was last year’s highest performing rider for SCMCC, finishing second in the interclub clubman division series.

The club’s oldest rider and member, Vic James, is still riding the tracks at age 75.

The come-and-try session will begin with a sign-on from 7am and a riders’ meeting at 8.05am, followed by riding from 8.15am until noon.

Approved helmets, boots, body armour, goggles and gloves are essential. The cost is $10, which includes a free come-and-try licence.

A practice session for members only will be held after lunch on Sunday.
