Bikers get on the track ahead of Supermoto V2.0 event

THE weekend offered a chance for local members of the Whitsunday Moto Sports Club to get some practice in ahead of the Supermoto of Champions V2.0 event in July.

It may have taken a little longer for the sun to heat up the riders, but once they were suited up and engines running, things got hot very quickly at Whitsunday Raceway on Lacelles Ave on Sunday.

Local supermoto competitor Aaron Barr got a jump start on his rivals ahead of the upcoming supermoto event with a good session on tarmac and dirt track. Young Donny Algie, who enthralled spectators at the open day, made a return appearance to tear up the track again on his PW50.

New road riders took their bikes to task and enjoyed the lack of distractions found on the road to hone their craft.
