THE 2ND WEEKEND IN JULY – MUST BE TIME FOR SA’s ICONIC ‘HARDI’ 24 HOUR TRIAL!
The 2nd weekend in July is here – and with it comes the running of South Australia’s most iconic motorcycle event, the 88th running of the 24 Hour Trial, which will be celebrating its 97th Anniversary with great naming rights sponsorship from Hardi!
HEADLINING THE WEEKEND’S ACTION!
24 HOUR TRIAL COMMITTEE HARDI 2021 24 HOUR TRIAL RELIABILITY
Saturday & Sunday, 10th & 11th of July! This year the event is returning to the traditional home at the Kapunda Harness Racing Club Complex, Kapunda.
First run in 1924, this year’s trial starts with the first machine leaving from the Kapunda Harness Racing Club Complex on Hancock Road at 11:00am on the 10th of July, and if all went well the first machine will return again at 11:00am on the 11th of July.
The weather will dictate a lot of the difficulties of the course, but whether wet or dry, it will be hard on both bike and rider (and passenger), and there is usually an attrition rate of at least 50%. The trial could not be run without massive support from many clubs, organisations and individuals, and the 24 Hour Trial Organising Committee thank them for their dedication to this great event.
Over 135 riders, as well as nearly 30 passengers will tackle 4 laps of the 200k course this weekend, with the Sidecars leading the way, with 2019 and reigning winners, Max & Sam Hutchesson leading the field away. Leading the Expert Solo field away will also be the 2019 & reigning Champion, Sean Throup, keeping in mind the event is returning after a year off in 2020 due to COVID-19.
The Hardi 24 Hour Trial is also round 4 of the 2021 South Australian Reliability Championships, so riders will be keen to ensure they cross the line on Sunday, to pick up valuable Championship points.
For all the details regarding this event, catering, spectator sections and heaps more, including the draw for the weekend, head to http://www.24hrtrial.com/ or check out their social media pages, Facebook & Instagram.
As well as the rugged men & women who ride the event, this has been and always will be as much a fun weekend for the spectators, as they watch their favourites from some of the best, most beautiful scenery in South Australia.
The 24 Hour Trial Organising Committee do ask spectators and all who attend to respect the land owner’s property, and to take your rubbish away with you please, to not camp on private property without permission and also to drive or ride carefully on the roads and not in any properties.
Also keep in mind that this event will run under all current COVID-19 requirements, so please QR Code when asked, adhere to all physical distancing requirements, and, if feeling unwell, please stay at home! Thank you!
