CALLING ALL BUDDING ROAD RACE CHAMPIONS – either those who are yet to enter the exciting sport that is motorcycling, or those who are already in the sport and riding on dirt but might just like to see what all the fuss is about on bitumen!
MOTORCYCLING SA, in conjunction with the bLU cRU SA JUNIOR CUP, are excited to announce a 2 day Come N Try Road Race weekend at the MONARTO GO-KART CIRCUIT, OLD PRINCESS HIGHWAY, MONARTO. Gates will open at 8.00am each day for an 8.30am sign on, followed by a 9.00am start.
With this Come N Try happening as part of the official 2023 bLU cRU SA Junior Cup Coaching Camp, you will also get a front row seat to see what is offered to junior road racers in South Australia – and get some tips from riders that are not long in the sport themselves – as well as get all the details on the bLU cRU SA Junior Cup programme.
There may also be giveaways and other activities happening on the day – keep an eye on the Motorcycling SA socials over the next week to see about any and all updates! In the mean time though, scroll down to see what you will need to do to be involved, as well as what you will get for your time.
