Conceived in 1978, the A4DE is renowned for its fierce competition nationwide, and the Erica location will provide the perfect landscape for the highly anticipated event in the local shire of Baw Baw. The event will include excellent spectator vantage points, plus easy access from the township. Scheduled to be held 6-9 May 2020 the Championship returns to Victoria when it was last hosted in Mansfield back in 2016.
With the 2020 A4DE to head back to Erica who hosted the prestigious event in 1987 Frank Gogol of the Dandenong Motorcycle Club commented:
‰ÛÏMany older Enduro enthusiasts will have fond memories of the 1987 A4DE at Erica with the Park Ferme on the edge of the State Forest that contains epic enduro trails in typical Victorian heavily treed gum forests.
"With the event scheduled for May, the trail conditions should be prime. With the assistance of DELWP (Forests Vic) and Parks Victoria the trails have been approved for use and are vast within the surrounding State Forests. Long trail loops planned with the Park Ferme at the hub of the expansive trail network.‰Û
