STOP PRESS! 2013 Race Day Plan

 I am pleased to announce that we can finally reveal our Race Plan for 2013 so please check the Event Calendar for the first Race Day on the 24th March and have a read of the information there as nearly everything has changed and in some cases quite a deal.

I am sure once you apply the classes to the bike or bikes you wish to ride you will see that you will get a minimum of 6 rides on one bike plus of course your warm up or sighting lap. Remember the focus on the day is to get through the whole programme which, if fully subscribed, will account for some 94 races!

We have kept our race entry fees to pretty much what you paid last year remembering that riders do not have to pay coming through the gate any more as it has been absorbed by the club in the way of additional track hire fees

One other thing not mentioned in the blurb on the Race Day page is that we will be paying our friendly people from the Scouts organisation (who have served us well at the canteen in 2012) to be 3 of our corner marshalls for each of our events.

This will elevate the always dreaded task of trying to get flaggies at our events but it does not take away the need to have the following,

  • Last lap and chequered flag person
  • Lap scorers as we are not using transponders this year
  • Starter
  • Start gate personnel
  • Race order announcer or race usher as i call it.
  • Start gate flaggie

Trying to get people to do these jobs is always a problem for any club but without people to do these jobs we just cannot race, so hopefully people out there can bring someone with them or, perhaps if they're not riding, lend a hand themselves.

What would be a great benefit, is if someone, who knows prior, that they (or a friend they know) can help out on the day would let us know upfront. Maybe you (or your mate) has a particular job eg. Chequered Flag that you would like to do …. just nominate to do that job and its yours. Another good job (if you can call any job good) is Starter!

You will see from the Event Calender that we have 4 dates this year plus the Charity Weekend. The first 3 dates being the 3 Race Round of the series and the 4th date a rain-off date should we have the need for it.

Membership Renewal

A reminder is that all club memberships are due for those that have not already renewed for 2013

Training Day

I need to also ask for expressions of interest for the proposed Training Day on the 23rd of March. This is a full day event which will cater for juniors, nippers seniors and side cars if we have the numbers to hold it. It is also the day before our 1st race meet the 24th of March so it may come in handy for some folk.

Please take the time to read the Race Plan for 2013 carefully and feel free to email any questions/criticisms/praise you may have.


 Re the Sydney Dirt tTrack series, entry forms will be sent out soon and there will be provision to enter for the 3 rounds upfront for those die hards who know they will want to ride all 3 rounds and get there spots secured on the grid.

 One thing not mentioned was that all heats and finals will be 3.5 laps

 So far i have had a great response to the new format with one member boasting that with 2 bikes he can get 8 rides!

 But, of course, change doesn’t always suit everyone and I have 2 classes which have been combined at present due to previous low numbers being the pre 75 125 and pre 70 class which is now combined and has affected a couple of members. So if there are enough guys/girls out there who wish to ride these classes I need to hear from at least 6 of you from each discipline before I can really change anything.


Hoping everyone has had a great start to the year !

RUN and WON!

Well the 10th annual Classic Charity event has been run and won. Congrats to all the winners and from all reports everyone was a winner anyway as the event was its usual fun and friendly self. 
 The riders applied themselves well to the at times very testing conditions, those that rode both days would have experienced at least 3 different track conditions from dry to  very wet but everyone rode to the conditions, showed 1 another racing courtesy and above all no one was hurt over the whole weekend, our medic Anthony didnt have a thing to do all weekend.
We ran a new format on the Saturday for the renowned 25 lappers which split the riders into 2 heats for each division, we ran 2 x 12 lap races and the top 7 from each heat went into a 20 lap final, which bought many people to the vantage points to watch.
The new concept was well received by the riders 

 An email with the results will be sent out shortly

 Many thanks once again to all those that helped out in any way what so ever.

 Our next meeting back at Nepean is only just over 1 month away, 27 Sept.

 So stay tuned for the entry forms which will also be out very soon

 Cheers Roosta



The CPMCC Charity Weekend is a 100% goer this weekend the 22nd/23rd August ..... please spread the word to anyone who may be interested.


HI Members and riders
Here is an extract from the latest news I have been given regarding this weekends event, News is that we should have a final answer by 10am Friday and as it says below that chance is 95%
Sorry but as I have mentioned all along it just has to take its course.
I will notify everyone as soon as I have the answer
"Roy,  At this point there seems to be a really good chance that Nepean will have a licence reinstated for this weekend but further discussions need to take place in the background between the relative authorities (not involving Motorcycling NSW or Nepean).  Should the legal issues be resolved,  the track licence will be issued and then the venue is right to use.  I asked if that is likely to be this week,  they indicated a 95% chance that it will so I am confident of it being so."


22nd - 23rd August - Deadline EXTENDED

Thanks to those that entered the Charity Event and an even bigger thanks to those that put up sponsorship monies.

Now we have the entries IN we can advise that some classes are down on numbers and have spaces left in them,
these classes are:

PRE 75 125
EVO 125
PRE 90 125
PRE 90 250
OVER 45's AND UNDER 45's

So if you are in a position to enter any of the above classes pls do so via by Tuesday 11th August

We are still hoping to have everything back in place as far as the licence is concerned in time for the event as all the work has been done, just waiting on other regularities to sign off.



The Classic Charity entry form is now available.

Pleases note that allthough quite a few people have a credit because of the rained out meeting we need to keep that seperate to the Charity meeting due to its costing differences, I hope everyone can work with us on this one and thanks for being patient with what has gone on since the 31st of May

Also on the Entry please note that the pre 85 class should read pre 90 motorcycles

Entries close on the 10 of August so pls get them in as soon as possible.





After tonight's Nepean meeting it was decided that due to the current situation of where we remain uncertain of when the track licence will be reinstated, we were left with no option but to postpone the practice day set down for this coming Saturday.

We also have had to move the KON to November 21 & 22.

I will update everyone as soon as more information regarding the track comes to hand along with a replacement date for our recently postponed event.




Unfortunately Nepean will still be without a licence for this weekend!

So this Sundays rec day will have to be postponed once again.

Sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment but again there was nothing more I could do

There is a meeting of the Nepean committee next Tuesday night where I will ask for a replacement date as soon as practical and will also have more news on whats happening with the King of Nepean event set down for 25 26 of July


ON ANY SUNDAY Dirt Track Racing


It is with much frustration that I at the 11th hour today was informed by MNSW that our event set down for this Sunday cannot go ahead as the track will now not be licensed for this date.

There is a free date at Nepean next Sunday which is a possibility but after consultation with the appropriate authorities it would not be feasible to announce this as the replacement date until at least Tuesday next next.
A decision will be made Tuesday evening as to wether or not we are likely to be able to run on Sunday 12 July

So sorry for this to have to happen but it was totally beyond my control and every effort was made to get this over the line.

I will update everyone next Tuesday night 7th July on what is likely to happen looking forward
