Note the venue, Wandering “Paynes Find” not Darkan. Track location available on Google Maps or http://vmxwa.com/paynes-find-wandering/


This Sunday is the recreation day at our home track Wandering “Paynes Find” this Sunday the 26th May 2024 incorporating the Troy Anderson Memorial.
We are inviting the Classic MXWA and Vinduro WA clubs along to participate and intend to run Pre ’75, Pre ’85 (inclusive of Pre ’78 and Evolution), Pre ’95, Pre ’04 and Sidecar classes although this may change on the day depending on entries. Women can ride a modern bike in the Pre ’04 class and unfortunately we are unable to run an official Junior class. Please note that dust suppression may still be an issue on the day with our limited water supply so the format may have to be flexible throughout the day and you may need to ride to the conditions although the team will be working hard to keep the dust down with what we have available.


We require a couple of volunteers for flag marshal and start line duties for the day. If you can assist or can bring someone with you to assist on the day, please text Dave Lawson on 0494105061 or email lawsondavid62@gmail.com.
