Steve Dinsdale Memorial ready to roll

Gum Valley Motorcycle Club will be holding the Steve Dinsdale Memorial on October 10 – 11.

This year the event will be held as a Motocross event and will attract many of the top local riders. The VMX Club has teamed with Gum Valley and will have vintage race classes on the Sunday as well.

Steve Dinsdale took up motocross in 1977 at the age of 12 and quickly proved his talent by winning numerous Central Queensland titles. He went on to win nine Queensland titles and took out Mackay's most famous race, the iconic King of the Beach at Grasstree, three times.

He took a break from motocross in 1986 to start a cane-harvesting business, and went on to become one of the most successful harvesting contractors in the Mackay district.

He made a comeback to riding in 1987 when he placed fourth in the Australian Mr Motocross Series, which could be described as his major achievement in racing.

Steve was Gum Valley’s inaugural president and one of the clubs founders. He was active in all aspects of racing in the CQ area from coaching, track preparation, and club officials as well as a well-known racer.

 The event will start from midday Saturday and all day Sunday. It will be fully catered by the local CWA ladies and the entrance fee will be $10 per car.
