2015 Peter Stevens South Australian Motocross Championship Hits the Midway Point At Keith This Weekend


The 2015 Peter Stevens South Australian Motocross Championship hits the midway point of the series when round three heads to Andy Caldecott Park in Keith this Saturday and Sunday the 24th and 25th of July.

After two fantastic rounds of racing at the opening two events held in Murray Bridge and Ceduna, over 130 of South Australia’s top junior racers will battle it out on the undulating surface of the Keith track on Saturday, before a further 130 plus senior riders battle for glory on Sunday.

Returning to the South Australian Calendar for the first time in many years last year, the Keith circuit proved to be a favourite amongst many competitors and was well received by the majority of riders, providing a tough and technical track, with a mixture of deep sand, deep ruts and lime stone sections.

One rider who is looking forward to returning to Keith, is the rider currently sitting second in the Expert Open championship, Dan Banks.

The Davey Motorsports backed rider who wrapped up the MX1 South Cup last weekend at the MX Nationals round held in Shepparton, Vic, recently rode the updated Keith track in the lead up to this weekends big event.

“The 2014 SA titles at Keith was the best I have ever seen the venue and also the best the track has been in a long time.” Banks commented. The track is looking to be awesome again for this weekends round 3 of SA Titles at Keith. 

“The club committee and president Heath Rayner has put in a huge effort to get the track in awesome condition for this weekend. They have added a couple of sand sections and modified some parts of the track for the better. 

“I’m looking forward to the weekend, feeling good and I can’t wait to race on the Keith track again” said Banks

Banks will be joined on track in the Expert open class by championship leader James Booth-Elliot as well as national regulars Luke Arbon and Izak Maule who currently sits third in the championship standings. 

On track action will commence at 8.30am on both days with practice followed directly by a day full of racing action.

Andy Caldecott Park is located on Charlies Well Road, Keith, off the Dukes Highway.
