ALREADY one of the safest and most popular layouts on the Gippsland Motocross scene, the Korumburra Motorcycle Club has taken its Outtrim track and made it even better.
Track manager David Webb, and his team of specialists have gathered all the best aspects of tracks they’ve visited far and wide and changed their Outtrim base for the better.
And last Saturday, at a club practice session, then on Sunday at one of their annual ‘Come and Try’ days, riders got their first chance to see what the new layout will look like once it is completed.
“We’ve kept the feature jump at the finish but we’ve redesigned the layout to make it safer and also better for the riders and spectators,” said KMCC President Graham Bird.
“For example, we’ve turned the first straight so that the riders start towards the crowd and they can get a better look at the all-important action at the beginning of the race.
“We’ve also changed a few of the corners, looked at a few speed points and improved safety at a number of other spots. We think it will come up really well,” said Graham.
Last Sunday’s ‘Come and Try’ day was the last main event for the club before it stages its popular Christmas Party ride day for members on Sunday, November 20.
“It’s a day for all members to come along, have a free ride and lunch and then we have our presentations.
“This is the off-season for us now but we’re planning to have another Come and Try day in February and then it’s back into the new season in early March.
“These days are about giving new riders a try at the track and hopefully some of them will come on as members. It’s a good opportunity.”
About 50-60 riders tried out the Outtrim track which had been nicely wetted down by recent rains – no dust!
There was a wide array of equipment on display and for riders who don’t compete even at a club level, there was some pretty talented riding and jumping going on.
