For many years the Old Bar track near Taree had the honour of opening, and closing, the dirt track racing calendar in New South Wales and that tradition will continue in 2019.
From 2014 to 2017 the Troy Bayliss Classic meeting opened the calendar, but this year the Taree Motorcycle Club has scheduled the Twilight Open meeting for Saturday, January 19.
The dirt track scene of course continues to produce exciting action for fans at the same time as producing exciting young talent progressing through the junior ranks in to other disciplines of the sport like speedway and road racing.
The twilight meeting will give riders the chance to blow away the cobwebs after a break from competition over the Christmas ‰ÛÒ New Year period.
As well as senior and junior 2-wheel action there will also be sidecar and ATV racing.
Entries close on January 11, but Race Secretary Lyndel Butler has encouraged riders to get their entries in early as there will be a cap on entries for some classes to ensure a streamlined program for riders and fans alike.
