2019 SOUTH AUSTRALIAN RELIABILITY TRIALS CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND 3 THIS SATURDAY & SUNDAY AT ROBERTSTOWN.
This Saturday sees round 3 of the 2019 SART Championship kick off from the Robertstown Oval, the Velocette MCC’s Lew Job 2 Day Reliability Trial, which will start with almost 100 entries, solo and sidecar, from 1.30pm on Saturday and 9.01am on Sunday, and is sponsored this year by Titanium Security Australia.
Run in honour of Velocette MCC Life Member, and long time sidecar rider, Lew Job, this year’s event will one to remember, but with an old favourite missing, with Springhut Creek having a rest for the first time in many years
Once again it looks to be a dry affair, with little rain falling in the area so far in 2019, and what has fallen in the past 2 weeks will not be enough to quell the dust!
However, if you are heading out to watch, perhaps put in a rain jacket, as it wouldn’t be the first time that decent and heavy rains have started to fall down in the Robertstown Ranges not long after bike #1 starts their 2 day journey in this event!
Spectators won’t have far to go to watch some great action, with a competitive section close to main control.
So, with free entry for spectators, a fully catered event at Main Control, bring along a deck chair and sit down to watch some great 2, AND 3, wheeled action during the afternoon and into the evening Saturday of this 2 day event.
Here’s all the low down of the days;
