Champion's Ride rated a great success first up at raceway

MOTORSPORT: Seventy riders were in Warwick for the first Champion's Ride Day at Morgan Park Raceway last week.

The riders came from as far as Hervey Bay, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and northern NSW.

Ten staff members from Champion's Ride Days will travel from Yatala to Warwick each fortnight to organise the days at Morgan Park.

Most riders bring their own bikes to the track.

A fleet of Kawasaki bikes is transported to each ride day for any riders without their own bikes.

There are no races or lap times at Champion's Ride Days, it is purely a social day where riders can test the limits of their bikes in a controlled environment.

Champion's Ride Days event and marketing manager Lauren Fendley said the days attracted riders from the Southern Downs as well as visitors from near and far.

"Positions for our second day at Morgan Park Raceway on July 19 are selling quickly and I am expecting the day to sell out prior to the event,” Fendley said.

Southern Downs riders keen to register for the July 19 program are asked to call the Champion's Ride Days on 3287 4144.

The days cater for bikes of all sizes and riders of all capabilities.

"There will be superbike riders involved on July 19 as they prepare for the national series at Morgan Park on August 18-19,” Fendley said.

"Spectators are welcome to have a look on July 19 and talk to the ride days team.”

Riders are split into four groups depending on bike size and experience so a rider with a small bike at their first Champion's Ride Day will not be in the same group as a superbike rider.
