The 2016 Pirelli Masters of Morgan Park is set to kick off this weekend (May 14 – 15).
With the fastest and flashiest European and American bikes entered in the BEARS F1 class, you have an opportunity to enjoy the sights and sounds of the flagship bikes from BMW, Ducati, EBR, Aprilia and KTM. The other BEARS categories will showcase many other British, European and American Racing gems.
If you like your motorcycles to have a bit of old fashioned character, then the Historic classes will have everything from the 1950s through to 2000, some with riders to match. The historic machines are not just there for display, they are there to be pushed to the limit. The top 30 fastest historic machines will compete in the Gregg Hansford Memorial Race. The winners take home prize money as well as the honour of winning the race named after one of Australia’s two wheeled greats!
Do you prefer three wheels to two? Come and see the sidecar crews work as a unit to push their machines to the limit. These complex beasts require rider and swinger to be in tune with each and understand their machine before they can really begin to push! With a good number of chairs on the grid it’s going to be a spectacle.
A weekend pass to the Pirelli Masters of Morgan Park is $15 for Adults and you receive a free sausage sizzle. Pensioners and children under 16 receive FREE entry. So come out to Morgan Park Raceway and check out some of Australia's best riders battle it out on two and three wheels. Bikes will be on track from 9am till 4:30pm Saturday and 8:30am till 3:30pm Sunday.
Interested in being more than a spectator and wish to be part of the event? We are looking for flag marshals! Training and lunch is provided, so if you have an interest in getting one of the seats closest to the action, and meeting other exciting people who give their time to ensure the racing runs smoothly and safely then contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
