Riders Geared up for Bathurst Long Track Masters
Some of the country’s best Long Track competitors are set to converge on the Bathurst Showground in the central west of NSW this Saturday (March 4) to battle it out for the Group One Site Services Bathurst Long Track Masters.
The Bathurst Long Track Masters is regarded as one of Australia’s best Long Track events and because of this prestigious honour it attracts riders from all around the country. For this year’s event, there are over 250 competitors raring to go, which will also see many of the competitors run in multiple classes.
Apart from riders coming from all over the host state of NSW, there is going to be a large contingent of interstate riders venturing from Victoria, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory.
The Bathurst Showground is a total of 810 metres in length, and it sees riders in the leading classes, such as the Long Track Sliders and Pro 450cc, reach top speeds of 150km/h, so there is certainly going to be no shortage of action and excitement.
To say that the event’s hosts, the Panorama Motorcycle Club, is excited about the upcoming Bathurst Long Track Masters would be quite the understatement.
“This year’s Bathurst Long Track Masters promises to be one of the biggest events of the year and there is no doubt that the action out on the track is going to be thick and fast,” commented Panorama Motorcycle Club vice president Wade Carter.
“The entire Panorama Motorcycle Club committee has been working very hard over the past 12 months in ensure we are able to host a fabulous Long Track event for both spectators and competitors alike.
“Since the entries for this year’s Bathurst Long Track Masters opened late last year, the fields for each of the classes filled up very quickly, which is a testament to what this event means to the competitors.
“The Bathurst Long Track Masters will be an action-packed event from beginning to end and the rider talent on show is very exciting as there are multiple current and former Australian and state title holders across many of the classes.”
This year’s Bathurst Long Track Masters classes are going to consist of Pro 450s, 250cc 2-strokes, 250cc 4-strokes, Womens Open, Hooligan Twins, Long Track Sliders, Pre 90s Classics MX, Unlimited 2-stroke MX, Long Track Sliders EVO, Over 40s Unlimited, Bathurst Unlimited, Dirt Track Sidecars, Flat Track 19s, Junior 85cc / 150cc (9 to Under 13 years), and Junior 250cc / 125cc (13 to Under 16 years).
