Motorcycle Racing Returns to Blayney Show-grounds

Posted:

Motorcycle racing will return to the Blayney Show-ground next month for the staging of the 2013 New South Wales Senior Track Championship meeting on November 2.

There is a great history of long track racing at show-ground tracks in the central west of the state after former world speedway champion Ivan Mauger staged meetings at the Bathurst Show-ground in 1989, 1990 and 1991.

The Panorama Motor Cycle Club then took over the reins and promoted an annual meeting at Bathurst from 1995 through to 2005.

From 2006 it was the Blayney Show-ground that hosted long track racing through until 2010, but in the past two years the Panorama Club did not stage a meeting due to a number of reasons.

So that the tradition of a major annual meeting, normally around early November, continues the controlling body of the sport in New South Wales has stepped in to organise the 2013 meeting that will hopefully ensure it continues into the future.

Like the majority of meetings staged at Bathurst and Blayney over the years, the November 2 meeting will have plenty riding on it with New South Wales titles on the line.

In a first for Blayney this year will see a day / night meeting with temporary lighting in place to allow racing to continue through to around 10pm.

Entries for the meeting will be taken through to the end of this week allowing organisers to formulate the program.

Fans travelling from Sydney will have the opportunity to call at Ash‰Ûªs Speedway Museum at Bathurst on the way through to Blayney. Museum curator Ash will announce the earlier opening time for the museum once the race program is complied.
