2015 VMX Rnd 5 – Dargle Motocross

Posted by on Jul 3, 2015 in Event Details, Events, Featured Posts |

What an event! The first meeting at the newly revamped Dargle Motocross was in 3 short words, a HUGE success. With non stop action from 10am Saturday to 4.30pm Sunday, the very technical, long, and challenging circuit tested even the most seasoned Motocrossers, and was it fun? Hell yes it was, with smiles from ear to ear on all of the 137 competitors who entered. What a great era our club has entered into where we can now book race weekends at this iconic natural terrain circuit. Here’s to good times ahead.


This is it! The much anticipated inaugural race meeting at the newly revamped DARGLE MOTOCROSS. Thanks to the generosity of Smith family, and the tireless efforts of a large portion of Heaven members who have pitched in to make this happen, the Heaven VMX club will be the very first club in decades to race the Motocross track at this iconic venue. With this circuit’s rich history of being one of the premier natural terrain tracks to race on during the 70s & 80s, it is only fitting that a Vintage Motocross race meeting kicks of this new era.

Kindly sponsored by Engineered Environments, this jam-packed event will feature ‘The ‘Hawkesbury River Classic’, the Bruce McFarland Memorial MX de Era event, Round 2 of the Roy East Classic Scrambles Series & Round 5 of our annual VMX series.

The HRC trophy events on Saturday include the:
* Pre65 Roy East Shield
* Pre70 John Hind Shield
* Pre75 Geoff Eldridge Shield
* Pre78 Ray Ryan Shield
AND a new addition for 2015
