The Sunny State Enduro season is about to kick off with the first round of the Yamaha Queensland 2 Day at Queensland Moto Park this weekend (February 13 – 14).
Some of the country’s best Enduro riders will be in attendance, including Tayla Jones, who has helped the Australian Women’s International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) take home gold for the past three years in a row.
Australian Enduro legend Kirk Hutton will again be competing, as will young gun Fraser Higlett, in his first 2 Day campaign as a senior rider.
Other big names already entered include the likes of Lachlan Stanford, Tom McCormack and Josh Green, with rumours of more factory Yamaha Off Road riders to come.
The series has again been coordinated by the Motorcycling Queensland (MQ) Enduro Subcommittee, and the team have been working tirelessly with staff from Queensland Moto Park to open a whole new section of the park for the 2 Day.
Chair of the MQ Enduro Subcommittee Mark Counsell says the tracks are looking great, and there’ll be something for everyone at this year’s opening round.
“In previous years, we’ve had feedback that the tests have been too geared towards the pros,” he says.
“This year we’ve designed four tests with every type of rider in mind- there’ll be something for the Juniors, right through to the Veterans, and a fast, technical section for the pros.
“Considering the very short time frame we’ve had to build the tracks, and the recent rain, riding conditions couldn’t be better.”
Queensland Moto Park is located at 110 Goan Road, Coulson. Racing kicks off at 9am on Saturday and at 8am on Sunday, and spectators are welcome to come and join in the fun.
