Who will take out Sunday's Rum and Port Cup?

MOTOR BIKES: Benaraby Raceway will host a keenly-fought battle between riders from Gladstone and Bundaberg on Sunday from 9am

Why? Because there will be points up for grabs which will determine whether the Gladstone or Bundaberg club will win the Rum and Port Cup.

The winning club will keep possession of the cup for 12 months and Gladstone and Districts Dirtriders Club publicity officer Julie Maeyke says there will be action aplenty.

"It is just the same as our usual meetings, but the only difference is the two clubs Gladstone and Bundaberg add their member's points together and we have a cup the winning club gets to keep for a year,” Maeyke said in reference to the Rum and Port Cup.

"There will be all classes from the four-year-olds in the demonstration class through to the senior open and senior lites classes.”

Maeyke predicted that the Gladstone representation of Sam Castle and Matty Sinclair, in the 65cc class, and the mini-lites contingent of Josh Castle, Dylan Holland, Ryan Scarborough and Luke Brown, will feature prominently.

"Gladstone is going well in the mini-lites, junior lites and clubman lites classes,” Maeyke said.

"We need all our members to turn up to win the cup back off Bundy.”

Maeyke said there are several senior riders in the running for valuable points.

"In the senior classes there will be Daniel Boyce, Tyson Baxter, Josh Hill and Shannon King and in clubman there's Dylan Bradley, Jason Geddes and Scotty Campbell,” Maeyke said.

Despite forecast showers on Friday, the weather is expected to clear for the big day on Sunday.

Entry is free and there are food and refreshments available.
