Compete in enduro and vinduro at the 10th biennial Jupiters Pan Pacific Masters Games, to be held from 12 to 13 November 2016, on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland.

No qualification is required - participants only have to meet the minimum age of 30 to take part. The competition will be divided into age groups ensuring the sport is played fairly and in tremendous spirit.

Enduro will features men’s and ladies’ competitions in 250cc and over 250cc for teams of two, three or four on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 November in Pimpama.

Vinduro will feature men’s and ladies’ competitions in classic (pre ‘78), post classic (pre ‘90), post classic (pre ‘85) and evolution for teams of two or three on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 November in Pimpama.

The world’s biggest and best biennial masters games will showcase competition in 44 team and individual sports and attract more than 13,000 participants from Queensland, interstate and overseas.

Not only does the nine-day celebration of masters sport provide athletes the opportunity to continue playing their beloved sport at a competitive level, it also offers a chance to experience new sports, develop rich friendships and explore one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations.

The opportunity for athletes to engage with new and old friends from around the world has grown with more participants than ever travelling to the Gold Coast and taking part in the games.

The diverse range of sports, stunning location and world-class organisation attracts thousands of athletes and supporters from outside of Queensland including countries such as Barbados, Japan, Switzerland and South Africa.

Four-time Olympian and event ambassador Benita Willis said this diverse range of sports and how it catered for all skill levels were her favourite aspects of the Jupiters Pan Pacific Masters Games.

“I love how many different sports there are on offer – within teams or as individuals,” Benita said.

“There is something for everyone regardless of fitness level.

“There are so many options to participate, have fun and meet like-minded great people.”

In the evenings, the Gold Coast suburb of Broadbeach becomes a bustling hive of activity and celebration with the Games Village located at the city’s premier entertainment destination, Jupiters Gold Coast.

The jam-packed entertainment program at the Games Village will feature a swag of legendary Australian entertainers including Ross Wilson, Angry Anderson and Sean Kelly, providing participants the opportunity to celebrate achievements, socialise with teammates, friends and family and enjoy the camaraderie for which the event is renowned.

Enduro and vinduro entries close on Monday 31 October 2016 at 5pm (AEST).
