As part of the clubs’ commitment to junior riders, we have secured the Rankmore Training Program to conduct a 50cc rider training and Kick-start course to be held in Orange on the 15th February 2014. This Training day will NOT be held at the track. Directions will be provided on enrolment.
The Rankmore Training Program is based in Dubbo and aims to promote the sport of Motorcross by giving junior and senior riders support to improve their confidence and ability.
They will also be holding in conjunction with the 50cc training a ‘Kick-start’ course, so if you’re new to the club or are interested in getting your kids ready for next season now is the time to come along.

We hope to have as many 50cc riders participate, as these skills not only improve your child’s confidence; it also makes them safer riders.

This Thursday the 12th of September 2013 it would have been Grace and Jessica Hornby’s 10th birthday. I am helping the twin girl’s parents Michael and Kelly Hornby formerly of Blayney promote their campaign Road Smart Day.
Grace and Jessica were tragically killed with their grandmother Denise Mansell in May 2009 on the Sunshine Coast when a vehicle smashed into their car.
The Hornby’s have dedicated the birthday of their young daughters to a road safety campaign which is being rolled out across Queensland and New South Wales.
On Sunday 15th Sept 2013 at our last round of Motorcross at “Newhaven Park” Clergate, as a tribute to all victims of road trauma, I am asking if all riders and their families can wear / display something Pink or Purple.
Andrea Hamilton- Vaughan our road safety officer from Cabonne and Orange City Council will set up a stand to offer advice on road safety and the Log Book Program for learner drivers.
Many young people on country and city roads speed, use mobile phones, and are often distracted by passengers, placing themselves at risk of crashing. In the country the added factors of fatigue, long distances and poor roads add to the risk of crashes occurring.
From September onwards there are more of our children getting their “Ps” and with end of year school parties the risk of our children driving on the roads increases.
Road Smart day is not a fundraiser but an event to remind people to slow down on our roads and stay safe. Road Smart should be thought about every time you get in your car. Road Smart Day is not just for Grace & Jessica… It’s also a day to remember all the lives that are lost on our roads.
