Dirt riders looking for new faces

THERE was no shortage of excitement at Dray's Park over the weekend with dozen of motorbike riders taking to the track at the Whitsunday Dirt Riders practice day.

Riders of all ages and skill levels took to the challenging circuit to test their skills across the tight bends and monster jumps of the dirt track. Whitsunday Dirt Riders President Kevin Burgess said the club was always looking for new members who were willing to learn to ride in a safe and friendly atmosphere. "Our membership ranges from four to 72-year-olds and everyone is welcome to come along and try and give it a go. The club holds different race meets here and there but there is also a strong social aspect to the club," Burgess said.

"There is nothing better than seeing a family come out and ride together or one of our older members giving the youngsters a few tips on how to handle the track."

The club holds practice sessions every Wednesday from 3-6pm and again on Sundays from 2-6pm

"We are also seeking volunteers to assist with the co-ordination of race meets, assist in the canteen and manage the club facilities."

Anyone wishing to get involved should phone Kevin on
