New Track Season Information
After a short break it will be time to dust off the Track Bikes and get on down to the track, with Track Training on Tuesday 23rd and 30th September, Before our Track Season Begins on Tuesday 7th October and Every Tuesday night from 6:30 pm for the remainder of the year. Sign on will open from 5:45pm.
The First two weeks will be Track Grading nights where we will be determining which grade you will be competing in for the season, so no points towards the point score will be awarded for these nights.
Please note that the schedule of events has been amended from last year.
To allow all riders to be aware of order of race events please read the following schedule.
2014/15 Track Racing Schedule (20 KB)
The Schedule will also be available at sign on for your perusal.
Tiny Tots, Super Tots and Junior Development will have 3 races
Junior Division 1 & 2 will have 4 races
Senior Division’s will have 5 races - this will include a feature race that will be changed each week.
We will endeavour going forward to conduct a “Novelty” Race for Junior Division 1 & 2.
1. Note: In the schedule for Junior Division 1 & 2 there first two races will be after the first Senior Division’s races and then there last two races will be before the last Senior Division’s races. This has been scheduled to allow for the Senior Feature Race to be included into the program.
2. Note: As the schedule of events will be available to all riders, please ensure that all riders are ready (with equipment eg shoes,helmet,gloves on etc) the race prior to your event. Races will not be delayed waiting for riders who are not organized. We all want to enjoy our racing and make sure that we all finish at a reasonable time.
3. Note: Handicap events will require a “pusher”. Please ensure that riders organise this prior to night racing. Any rider that does not have a “pusher” will have to start “off the fence”.
If you do not want a pusher that’s fine you can just start of the fence.
Thursday Night Track Training and The Tuesday Training Sessions Before Season Begins will commence from 5:30 pm for Juniors and Seniors on Track from 6:30pm (No Seniors are allowed on the track while Junior Training in Progress) .
As the season progresses we will also have a Saturday morning Training session from 7am for Juniors and 8am for Seniors, the club also has use of the track on Sunday mornings from 7am to 9am however there will be no organised training, but there could be others to train with.
Please Note: Due to Roadworks / Water pipe replacement in Darling St , the main entry to Victoria Park is currently closed, entry is available from the back entry via Victoria Lane which is accessible from either Talbragar St or the back of the Western Plains Cultural Centre car park in Wingewarra St
Club Track bikes will be available once again this season to give riders the opportunity to enter the sport without the expense of purchasing a track bike. The bikes are limited in numbers and are there to support the growth of the club therefore consideration is given to providing a club bike for a second or subsequent seasons. If your family has used a club bike in the past please do not assume a bike will be available again this season.
For further information please contact Craig or a Committee member down at the track on Tuesday and Thursday nights starting this week or give Craig a call, contact details are available from the contact page.
Road Race Presentation Day
Road Racing Presentation Day will be held at the Western Plains Zoo Safari Park Playground on Saturday 11th October at 11am.
There will be prizes for the Top 10 places for the pointscore competition run throughout the season as well as medals and trophy's for the Graded Club Championships for both Junior and Senior riders.
We will supply the meat for a BBQ lunch but can we please bring a salad or desert to share as well as a chair to sit on.
RSVP to Craig (email@example.com) before the 7th October.
There are a number of road perpetual trophy's that will need to be returned so they can be prepared for the event so if you have one of these can you return it to Craig who will be at the track from 5.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting the 9th September, or drop it to Macquarie Automotive 2/55 wheelers lane between 8.00am to 4.30pm week days.
