Our Ride Days are not a race or race practice days, they are aimed squarely at the leisure ride day motorcyclists wanting to have a fun day at the track.

    If you want to test the speed and limits of your motorbike in a controlled environment, without speed cameras, other cars, or other hazards that you get on the road then a ride day is a great way to spend the day riding and socialising with like-minded enthusiasts and mates.

    The Four Groups You Can Enter:

    Formula Group / For entry level riders and those who prefer to ride at a casual pace.

    GT Group / For riders who want to take a step up in pace from the Formula Group.

    Corsa Group / For advanced riders who have experience and pace beyond either the Formula or GT groups

    FX Group / A group for the most experienced riders with dedicated track bikes who ride at pace beyond the other three groups.


    So not really for racers
    so is there a pace/speed requirement ? is there coaching ? can I just book whatever group I'm feeling ?
    Rest in Peace

    Not being an arse (seriously), but would be much better to ask the organizers?

    It's based on laptimes you will be put in a group depending on what laptimes you do. You book what group you think you should be in and they will move you around to balance things out.

    So, was talking to a racer today who had pretty solid 'evidence' that the mob involved in Talem Bend SA [Peregrine Corp? ] has disclosed a great interest in a 5klm course located next to the Motorplex in Kwinny.

    Is meant to take up the old Alcoa mud lake/tip , and is being closely looked at by the relevant authoritahs.

    So, we go from 2 tracks, to one upgraded, to maybe 2, to hopefully 4 tracks in the area.

    'Apparently' the vehicle booking for Barbs can take up the vast majority of available weekends , Keysbrook might only be allowed 14 weekends a year and not sure about Collie. Maybe there IS room for another privately managed track?

    Plenty of bitumen available , plenty of variety and hopefully plenty of access for ALL forms of motorsport/ training/ track days.

    *Bought to you by your local gossip dealer...
    Sventek, being a predominantly lazy fuck can you please purchase some for me, bring me the stuff, create something I want after you think of it for me then clean my house, wash my car, dog, bike breathe for me.

    Thatís good for all us non racers who use the tracks.

    Watching the Foxtel coverage of MotoGP last night was rather pissed when Mat Miladin said MA were doing a great job with bike racing at the moment.

    Come on, the majority of Australia doesn't consider Western Australia to be part of Australia, everything west of 129įE is just dragons, myths and mining royalties.

    The federation in 1901 was fake news, most of those in QLD/NSW refuse to acknowledge its existence, as they've never seen it before, and to Victorians the thought of 3 sunny days in a row gives them nose bleeds.

    I believe they were interested in the Motorplex but the deal didn't include the extra land so they have pulled out

    Used to work at alcoa, the difference with the land to the east of motorplex is its proximty in to residential areas off thomas rd. Due to the."offroad area" the current motorplex facility location didn't have the same affect.
    Also land to the east was more built up i believe, so the noise affect was greater in distance. This was a fair while ago now though...
    yes, i am ignorant

    Both really valid points and likely to carry more weight than my mere gossip. Also the relatively close proximity to the Keysbrook track did seem somewhat irregular.

    It would be the perfect breeding ground for an engineering hub in between however. Something that the Govt. would like to associate themselves with as they can use that famous tag word, 'JOBS' .

    Shit it would be exciting to think that the WA motor racing scene had finally taken an exponentially forwards step though.

    Oh well. I guess we really do require another lawn bowls centre for the aged, and the accompanying entertainment area that never gets patronised...

    The thing that concerns me most is Keysbrook being limited to 14 weekends/year? I hope that too, is mere gossip. That's like 27% useage on weekends throughout the year... what a waste.

    From their original proposal, it was something like 10-12 motorcycle race weekends a year, with 4-5 Ridedays style events a month on top of that... That was just the motorcycle events.

    Very true. Initial report suggested 40 weekends a year and full time week days for training, etc. Again, rumour and innuendo.

    Hopefully the 14 is inaccurate , as the noise abatement plan has well passed public comment. Seems the property owners close to the proposed track were the primary opponents, but the Shire are in full agreement. Perhaps the 14 weekends was a way to placate them and get it passed.

    Once the track is done and hopefully the previous owners eventually move on/die, then the plan might be changed.
