Taree Motorcycle Club's Old Bar Roadside Circuit was the home to dozens of competitors last weekend for a come and try day and club championship round.
Many of the junior competitors at Sunday's round four championship event entered in a number of classes, with three point-scoring rounds in each class. A fourth, non point-scoring round was run on the long track for both the junior and senior riders.
Will Bisley achieved two firsts and one second placing while Ryan Smith achieved two firsts in the junior classes.
Experienced motorcycle rider, visiting senior Craig Clark, travelled from Brisbane to Taree for the weekend to experience his first practice and then first race meeting on an oiled dirt track.
Seniors Kye Andrews and Beau Baff joined Dale Austin, Ken Bisley, Craig Clark, Daniel Evans, Callum Gore and John Openshaw in the senior races on Sunday. Dale, Craig and Callum had a busy day with all competing in four different classes over three rounds. Kye and Daniel competing in three three classes while and Beau, Ken and John raced in two classes.
While all competing seniors earned one or more places on the podium, Ken Bisley achieved two first placings at the championship round.
