Classic MXWA – Vintage Motocross Club of WA combined event April 18 2021, Darkan – Event Report

Firstly the VMX club would like to acknowledge the invite from the Classic Club for us to join in the fun at Darkan…much appreciated…also to all the hard work done by the Classic Club on the track..

Saturday evening camping was fun as many times before.. the “usual suspects” kept all well entertained…though as I understand there were some sore heads Sunday morning…

Sunday was bright and early.. Sign on had some 85 riders.. of which 25 were VMX members. Great job to all those who made their way there.

Great to see the Harris clan on hand debuting a very nicely restored RM Suzuki.. a few more sorting days.. all good.

Good to see a couple of vintage stalwarts (bikes..not people) in Hayes Forsyth and Asry Bizar out for a ride.. Asry has been busy expanding the brood and brought the kids along too.. well done..

Another worthy mention goes to Stan Reid.. been a  while since we’ve seen you Stan and Veronica.. great job..

The class set aside for us to ride was “pre 80” of which the majority of bikes were pre 75.. so all good. Conditions really suited our machinery, particularly early in the day.. was lots of fun.

A real eye opener for the rest of the Classic guys was Sarah and Rob cutting some laps on the sidecar.. Interesting to see the number of people up against the fence taking videos/pictures of them going around.. You could see the expression on the spectators faces. WTF..??!!

Everyone went home happy and in one piece…great days riding..
