2014 Series - Race 1 - Race Schedule & Course Changes

Here's the rough plan for Sunday. Please note .. it's draft, may change etc.

Our plan all along was to change the course race-to-race to keep the racing fresh and we are happy to announce that we have made a number of enhancements that should be great fun to ride.

The big news is that we have installed a beach.. well two 4x15 metre sandpits in close succession. These are gas fun to ride.

We have also cut some extra course around the off-camber out-&-back and changed this up a bit, including putting in a run-up (massive props to anyone who can ride this bit - unlikely, but some freak will probably prove us wrong).

The other major change, in case you haven't heard, is that we won't be including the Rollercoaster this round as we are currently working through a resident complaint. No doubt, some people will be disappointed, others relieved. Please bear with us as we work through this as it is obviously in everyone's interests that we arrive a workable long-term solution for our premier feature.

Race village will be bigger and more vibrant this round, and spectators should be able to see the whole race from the hilltop viewing area, including a great view of the new beach features.

Finally,there will be a separate kids course in the event village area which will be open all day for play laps. Should be pretty rad watching the kids all cutting laps together just for fun.

* Kids don't need to pre-reg (as they aren't transponder timed)
* Kids do however need to be licensed and must rego on the day and receive a race number before racing (this way we know everyone is insured)
* Kids licensing can be sorted on the day for new racers.

* All seniors need to pre-reg. (you are transponder timed and there is some computer black-magic that needs to be worked so your name, transponder numberm, race number and rego pack all align.

* We may take some entries on the day but you need to be very lucky. Please pre-reg so we don't have to run around and get all surly at you on race day.

* If you are waiting to know what the weather is doing, I can tell you now it will be sunny and georgous all day.
