Motocross Club Day small but still a treat

Motocross: Numbers might be down but that didn't stop competitors from having a blast at the Chinchilla Motocross Club Day.

President Jake Jenyns said it was the fourth club day of the year and, despite low numbers, it was a "good casual day”.

"Everyone seemed to enjoy the track, no accidents, the track formed up beautifully, and we had plenty of out-of-towners, people travelling from Roma, Brisbane, Kingaroy,” Jenyns said.

But he explained the low turnout this year meant the club was struggling to break even.

"Even on a club day, just with track preparation, ambulances and what not, and trophies, by the time the day is done and expenses go out, we're lucky to break even.

"(It) makes it a little bit difficult to try and improve the club, make out facilities better and move forward but, as long as everyone has a good day, a safe day, and enjoys themselves, that's what the club's there for.”

Jenyns said all were welcome to come along for a day of motocross, with free entry and great competition.

"It's always good to watch,” he said.

The club is also planning a 'come and try' day for newbie revheads.

Jenyns extended special thanks to Shaun Robinsen Electrical for help maintaining the grounds.
