Club Racing this Weekend 17/09/17 – Location Change

********** Location change due to Bush Fire risk **************

Hi Everyone, Due to the current fire danger and the ever changing fire situation in the Heaton / Awaba area, the committee has made the decision to move racing to Killingworth for this round, We held off as long as we could with this change in the hope that we would not have to move venues, but unfortunately the fire is still burning so we have had to move venues. Thank you for your understanding.

To access the event centre, turn right into The Boulevarde, Killingworth and follow for several hundred metres before turning left onto the first unmarked dirt road on the left, BEFORE you reach the power sub station. Follow the access road under the freeway then right at the T junction and another several hundred meters to the event centre. If you have a car with low clearance it is better to park on the road and ride in to the event centre
