MotoX riders to kick up the dirt

GLADSTONE motocross riders are on the right track at Jono Porter Memorial Drive facility, according to Gladstone District Dirtriders Club president Peter Campbell.

With the club holding its Club Day number five on Sunday, it’s expected to be a perfect day for spectators and riders alike.

Campbell said the track was in excellent nick and many people commented at the recent Jono Porter Memorial Two-Day event about how well the track raced.

A highly distinguished visitor said he’d never seen a track in such quite good condition, Campbell said.

There’ll be about 100 riders competing, and the racing is expected to be of high quality between club members.

The surface was improved by 360 cubic metres of sand, Campbell said.

“There’s been a great amount of work put into the track since May and there’s lots of grip for riders,” he said.

Scrutineering and nominations will be taken on the day from 7am and practise starts at 8am. Racing is to start at 9am.

Entry is $5 adults, $3 kids or $10 per car and a canteen and bar will operate on the day.
