The 2023 The Construction Team Central Coast Cup long track motorcycle meeting will be staged this weekend (September 9 and 10) at the Allen Park track at Somersby, near Gosford.

Since its inception in 2005, the Central Coast Cup meeting has established itself as one of the major non-championship meetings on the dirt track calendar.

There have been many significant names in the sport who have their names on the honour roll of winners in both the senior and junior (13 to U/ 16s) cups.

Two previous winners of the senior event will be trying to add another success to their records while as often happens there must be a new name added to the honour roll of winners of the junior event this weekend.

Host club member David Smith has a chance to become the winningest rider in the history of the event, an honour he currently shares with Queenslander Jace Castles with three wins each.

Hunter Club rider Luke Bush is the defending champion and he is striving to become only the second rider ever to win the event in successive years.

But there could well be a different rider standing atop the rostrum after the 8-lap final with a number of serious contenders headed by former Junior Cup winner Grant Charnock from Forbes who has recently scored a class win and a third placing at the Australian Senior Track Championships.

Kurri Kurri duo Cody Lewis and Angus Hutchinson, Brayden Gay and Jacob Richardson from the Hunter, Tamworth’s Blake Wilby, another host club rider Peter Smith and former speedway star Taylor Poole all come with good credentials.

There is only a small field for the Junior Cup with one Queensland visitor Bodie Paige throwing out a challenge to Hugh Hope-Hodgetts from Forbes, Jayden Holder from Kempsey, Max Earl from Newcastle and local Lachlan Russell.

The other junior classes will feature a number of riders who were successful at the Australian Junior Track Championships back in July including champions Jake Paige (9-U/13s) from Queensland, Cohen McCosker (7-U/9s) from the Hunter and both girls’ champions Romee Flewell-Smith from Queensland and host club rider Amelia Kotze.

Many of the riders contesting the Senior Cup are also riding in the MX Open and Pro 450 classes which will culminate in a final after five rounds of heats.

There is also a class for the Over 35s which always provides some close racing.

Action fires up on Saturday morning with practice then three rounds of racing for all classes before the Clock on the Wall KO format for both seniors and juniors in the afternoon.

Sunday action gets underway at 10 am with two more rounds and finals of all classes before the 8-lap finals of both the Junior and then Senior Cup will wrap up the program early in the afternoon.

Entry fee for spectators this weekend will be $10 per vehicle payable at the gate as a tax-deductible donation to the St Johns First Aid.

The Allen Park track is situated at Debenham Road North, Somersby, NSW.
