Australian Historic Road Race Championships coming to SA
Mallala Motorsport Park is to host the Australian Historic Road Race Championships over four days from 8-11 October 2015.
Motorbikes from the early 1930’s up to 1990 will be competing.
Current Isle of Man campaigner and Norton Ambassador, Cam Donald will be competing on at least one bike and he will be, without doubt, at the cutting edge.
With him in the unlimited Period 5 bikes (up to 750cc from 1973- 1982), will be big name riders like Brendan Roberts, Steve Martin, Marty Craggill and possibly Shawn Giles. These riders are on bikes that, in their current form, are putting out 180hp through the back wheel and in the hands of these outstanding riders, should provide spectators with an action packed event.
Modern bikes continue to break records at the Mallala track, so it is expected that the historic bikes will be creating a feast of new records.
Entries have been streaming in and organisers are hoping to get close to 300 bikes on track.
There is a buzz about the Championships as many competitors have either never ridden the track or at least not ridden it for many years.
Those who have been away for years will be pleasantly surprised by what is on offer. Over 100 garages are available to competitors with each able to facilitate 2 solo bikes comfortably. There are also grassed areas for setting up pit tents.
Spectators have access to good facilities to view the racing with grassed mounds as well as stands around the circuit.
Thursday 8 October will see up to 40 practice sessions. A similar number of sessions will happen on Friday when official qualifying occurs.
Saturday and Sunday will see 3 legs of each championship race which means between 25 – 30 races on each day.
Needless to say there will be plenty of action on track as well as some static and not so static displays over the weekend.
