The tough decision had to be made and due to several factors out of our immediate control we have had to cancel
The Kennards Hire Short Shift Showdown.
THE KENNARDS HIRE SHORT SHIFT SHOWDOWN
This could be BIG……
We have adopted components from 3 very successful Australian Flat Track events to try something New, something Fun and something Exciting….Pulling Gears and Sliding Rears at THE KENNARDS HIRE SHORT SHIFT SHOWDOWN, brought to you by the Coffs Harbour Motorcycle Club.
Too much seriousness, not enough racing.
Let us fix both of those gripes in one event.
Limited entry numbers so everyone gets loads of track time, one condition…..you have to have fun and have a laugh.
Start prepping those ‘Maddest Modified’ bikes you have always wanted to punt around a proper Flat Track.
Start thinking about a spongy, safe ‘Appalling Apparel’ costume to take some seriousness out of it.
Gee up your riding buddies…. the Recreational riders can have up to 24 on the track together, which should slow you all down a bit…. You can even share a bike if you get too buggered from laughing.
If you think you can pop a mono.…try your luck at going for the prize of ‘Longest wheely in 2 minutes around the Hoon Loop’.
The fast guys get a turn as well with 5 x 10-minute practise sessions to get the feel of the 5 different tracks.
The competition riders better be on their game though, because to top it off …. one of the rounds will be a qualifying round, so the fastest 12 riders progress to a 12-lap final RACE.
Prize money will be awarded down to sixth place for both of the ‘Big Gun Fast Classes’.
And if this isn’t enough entertainment for one night.…. well, then some of the country’s fastest hotted up posties are going for the title of ‘Fastest Mail Delivery’.
Don’t miss this one people…. It’s going to be a hoot of a time.
This exciting new event is setting the industry a buzz with anticipation and it is bound to entertain many people from far and wide. With your help, this event has the potential to grow into a major event and merchandising bonanza.
If you would like to get on the band wagon for this unique first-time event that has been rescheduled for the 25th September 2021, please contact Phil Crough via phone or email to discuss your involvement.
The Kennards Hire Short Shift Showdown has the potential to be another good fundraiser to continue improving our tracks and facility.
