Mackay MotoCross club member Bianca Ross said competitors had been practicing hard in the lead up to the event, and riders were still welcome to use the Mackay track to train.

She said to replace the Queensland Motocross champi- onships on the July 10-11 weekend, the Mackay Junior Motocross Club would host a Club Day for those who can make it.

“This will be the first inter- club series with the last three club days taking place over the coming months,” she said.

“We have major funding from Mackay Regional Council. They have jumped on board with us with a grant of $10,000 for mar-keting and promotion, so that has been a huge help to us."

Ross said with three hundred members of the club showing up to practices during next few months, clubs from other areas were also welcome to come and ride.

“With more than one hundred riders showing up on any given weekend on practice days, members from as far as Arlie Beach were attending the weekend practice,s as well as members from Whitsunday dirt bike riders.

“We have also had members from Moranbah, Dysart and Emerald starting to come to the sessions.

“Riders are very keen to start the races, but we just have to set- tle on a date that people can compete.”
