GAWLER MCC HOSTING FINAL ROUNDS OF THE SAORC THIS WEEKEND AT COONALPYN – WITH IT ALSO BEING ROUNDS OF THE AORC AS WELL – AUSTRALIA’S BEST IN SA!
The Gawler MCC have spent the past month preparing the scrubs of Coonalpyn for this weekend’s final rounds of the 2019 SA Off Road Championships, which is also hosting rounds of the 2019 Australian off Road Championships, so Australia’s best riders will be in SA, including many who will be representing Australia at the ISDE this year.
Here is the need to know for those heading down for a look – and it will be well worth the drive, as spectator sports are plentiful, and within a lazy walk of the car park – PLUS – kids will be able to wander through the pits and get to meet their off road heroes!
A gold coin will get you through the gate, and with a programme in your hands to see who is who out on the track!
PLEASE NOTE: Dogs/pets and mini bikes (except those entered) are not permitted at the event – this is land that is normally a working farm, so please respect the landowner’s livelihood, and his generosity in opening the gates for this event to happen.
