HORSHAM Motorcycle Club vice president Merv Williams is confident Dooen Raceway will be in ideal condition for the MX National Championships next month.
The club hosted the Victorian Senior Motocross Championships final round at the weekend, with riders adjusting to a muddy track.
Horsham Motorcycle Club will host round seven of the MX National Championships on July 15. The round was originally scheduled to be at Barrabool in Victoria.
“There is a really big three weeks ahead of us to get organised,” Mr Williams said. “It’s not a problem at all. We could have panicked with the short notice we had for nationals but we have such good people behind the club and they make it great.”
Mr Williams said club members worked on Dooen Raceway during the Victorian round at the weekend, ensuring it was in the best condition possible.
“The 40 millimetres of rain we had throughout the week affected it,” he said. “Traditionally out here, if we don’t get more rain than that, it goes really tacky and once the bikes churn it up, there is really good grip on the track.”
Mr Williams said club members rolled a tractor over the track twice on Saturday once prior to racing and again after day one events were complete.
He said the track was rolled again yesterday.
“If it does rain in the next week or so it won’t soak in, it will roll off,” he said.
“We had to bypass a couple of jumps because it was too sloppy.
“The awesome thing about the Horsham track is its flexibility, you can cut a little bit out and still make it ridable.
“We ended up with some of the best, tightest races at the weekend.
“Mud becomes a leveller.”
Horsham’s Tamika Edwards finished fourth overall across the four-round state event in the women’s 250cc category.
Fellow Horsham competitors Brett Harris and Jory Hancock also competed.
