The premier event on the City of Penrith Motor Cycle Club’s (CPMCC) race calendar is the Annual Classic Dirt Track Charity Weekend.
As the name implies the purpose of this two-day event is to raise funds to support a Charity.
This year our chosen Charity is Australian Rotary Health Support for Early Onset Dementia Research.
This cause is especially close to our hearts as former club Vice President, Peter “Teflon” James #910, battles this horrible disease.
The format of the Classic Dirt Track Charity Weekend differs from our normal racing events primarily because it is open only to bikes that were manufactured in and prior to 1995.
Some bikes are over 50 years old and still racing around the renowned Nepean Raceway at Castlereagh, which coincidentally is celebrating its 60th year in 2019.
Over the two days, spectators will be well catered for with free entry on the Saturday and just a Gold Coin donation on the Sunday, free parking, clean amenities, a great canteen, coffee truck … and that’s just the start!
On the Saturday there will be the “Man and Machine” versus the famous Nepean Track for the legendary two 25 Lappers for all machines up to Evolution (approx. 1984) and all machines Pre ’85 to Pre ’95.
Following that will be the “Classic Weekend After Party”! A great time to meet the Nepean legends, bench race and chin wag over a beer … plus “all you can eat pizza” and ribs and salad.
Just $25 (BYO) gets you a ticket. Riders, Family, Friends and Spectators are most welcome.
On the Sunday, there will be demonstrations rides from some of the great names of Nepean Raceway’s past. PLUS static Bike Displays, a Show and Shine and much, much more!
Of course, there will also be a full day’s action-packed Classic Racing! The thrills and spills of Dirt Track racing are hard to beat and there are great vantage spots around the track to see the action “up close”.
If you want to get even closer to the action … you can volunteer to be a Marshall for the day which offers not only a front row seat but free refreshments and lunch plus other great benefits.
Being a Charity event, we want to raise as much money as possible, so if you, your club, your business or your workplace would like to sponsor an event, please download a Sponsorship Form from the CPMCC website.
