Classics return to McNamara Park

Mount Gambier’s McNamara Park will host the Laurie Fox Memorial Classic Master of Mac Park this weekend.

The weekend’s action will kick off with practice on Friday, qualifying on Saturday morning and racing Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday.

The racing will culminate with the Classic Master of Mac Park feature races, as well as the Laurie Fox Memorial sidecar handicap races.

There has already been a large number of sidecars entered, ensuring these races in particular promise to be a great spectacle.

Father-son sidecar duo David and Stephen Jones will compete on separate bikes this year, so competition between them is guaranteed to be fierce.

With more than 100 riders entered, and many bringing multiple bikes, there will be large grids across all classes. An amazing array of bikes will be featured, some up to 80 years old, with different classes catering for different bike age and capacity.

The event promises a friendly atmosphere with the ability for spectators to wander through the pits and get up and close to the bikes, with plenty of great viewing opportunities.

Entry is $10, under 16 free, with full canteen and bar facilities available all weekend.
