National Come N Try Day Wrap Up
Come N Try Days are a fantastic way for motorcycle clubs to recruit new members and encourage potential newcomers to visit and try out one of the sport's various disciplines of motorcycling, which includes Motocross,Road Racing, Enduro, Speedway, Moto-Trials, Dirt Track and Quads.
Nine affiliated clubs hosted National Come n Try events with great turn outs at all venues. Just over 350 brand new come n try riders came out to participate and give either Motocross,Dirt Track, Speedway or Moto Trials a go. On top of this a further 150 regular practice riders also participated showing the new comers what the sport is all about.
By taking part in the National Come N Try Day riders had the chance take up a Free annual recreational license to the value $105, providing a great incentive to get into the sport. By taking up the annual license, riders can continue to come back out their local club to ride at practice and ride days and when confident to upgrade to race.
Hosting clubs did a fantastic job encouraging young juniors to get some coaching and complete their Kickstart program to upgrade to a full race license to take full advantage of the discount. Participates from the day also went home with a great show bag full of all sorts of information about the sport, clubs which also included a 2015 Fox Catalogue thanks to Fox Head Australia and a Honda Sticker Pack thanks to Honda Australia.
Since the come n try’s over 100 new riders have claimed their free license or upgrade to a race license, which is great, but there are a lot more that can still get in their application to take up this offer. Riders have until the 30th April to claim this, so make sure you don’t miss out!
If you are interested in still attending one of these days there are a few days still remaining. Speedway Riders Association will be running a Speedway Come N Try day at Gillman Speedway on June 7 from 2pm. Enduro clubs will also have a go later on in the year in September, however more information will be provided closer to those days.
