Despite being considered one of the premier circuits in the central west, Dubbo Dirt Bike Club members have pulled out all stops to build a national-level track in the city.

The track has been ripped, ploughed, scraped and widened with more than 500 tonnes of sand and bark chip mixed into the rich clay soil creating a perfect blend of racing loam.

The berms and starting area have also been extensively reshaped with the aim to create more racing lines and improve the action for the spectators on the hill.

Racers from around the region are expected to converge on the track to pit their skills against the local talent.

In the juniors Connor Albert and Lachlan Colbran have been showing impressive form at regional meetings and will be looking forward to stamping their authority over the track.

Trent Wheatley and Luke Holcombe narrowly missed the podium last weekend at Mudgee and will be looking to go one better this weekend at Dubbo.

There are expected to be some fresh starters in the senior classes with several veterans of the sport making a return to competitive riding.

Matt Cook will be keen for a good ride in the opens while Nigel Campbell is hoping to dominate the over 30s.

Local KTM mechanic Sam Williams will be a favourite to take out the Lites class.

Gates open at 7am on the day to check things out and sign on.

Riders briefing is at 8.45am, practice starts at 9am and racing starts at 9.30am.

The club extends a massive thank you to the following businesses who have made all the action at Morris Park possible: Hall’s Transport Repairs, EDH Hydraulic Repairs, LA Tractor Parts, Dubbo Sands, Coates Hire, Nicolson Projects and Chris Whitney MX Track Constructions.
