Take your bike onto the track at Morgan Park Raceway

As part of Round Four of the Pirelli Southern Downs Road Race Series, there will be a parade lap for registered motorcycles and their riders/pillions during lunch on Sunday the August 2.

The parade will give riders an opportunity to ride on the circuit and experience the track from a racer’s perspective. There is nothing like riding a track to experience the extent of the elevation.

See exactly how little the racers can see on the blind turn three under the bridge and the hairpins of turn four and turn six. See if you notice the dip on the apex of turn seven that makes it exceedingly difficult to get perfect drive out of it. Next you have to deal with the bumps through the very fast turns eight and 9. See how the riders can so easily get sucked in to turn ten too early, and then see if you can see the best way through the final chicane before the front straight.

Morgan Park Raceway is a rider’s circuit, and this is your opportunity to see exactly what the racers are riding on. So get out to Round Four of the Pirelli Southern Downs Road Race Series at Morgan Park Raceway in the lovely town of Warwick and be a part of the action!
