King of Neapean 2012 Dirt Track, Flat Track Racing
We were invited to attend this awesome event by Nepean Motor sports Club secretary, Greg Heatley.
Dirt Track or flat track racing has a long and established history in Australia.
The Nepean Raceway which opened in 1959, is run by a handful of Sydney motorcycle clubs on a volunteer basis. The effort to make an event like this happen is astounding. Countless hours organizing and dedication to keep this sport healthy insures that spectators like ourselves are subjected to one hell of a show!
The Program on the left shows riders at Nepean in 1973 going hard. Today the spirit of dirt track racing is just as strong.
From Sidecars to MX there was plenty for everyone.
Many riders coming from across the State to compete at race days and some as young as 10yrs old. Nepean raceway also holds coaching clinics.
Overall a great day out with lots of race action. A big thanks to Greg Heatley for his endless efforts to promote the event and the volunteers who helped make it happen.
