The Qld Female and Veterans Motocross Championships were run at Six Mile Raceway, Rockhampton on the weekend of 29 & 30 July.  The meeting included classes for Female riders in Senior and Junior classes, plus classes for Veterans riders in five age groups from 35 years up to 60 years and over.

The meeting came together again at the last minute after the floods from Cyclone Debbie devastated the track and facilities at Six Mile Raceway.  The club had relinquished  the running of the meeting after the floods, but agreed to promote it again after another promoter could not be found.  While one Debbie had caused the problems another one, Debbie Dark pulled it all back together.  Debbie and her husband Peter worked tirelessly to get it back on track. The meeting was changed to practice only on Saturday and then racing Sunday.  The track was fantastic both days and the meeting ran well.

The outstanding riders at the meeting were,  Madi Simpson, Jasmine Stagg, Charli Cannon, Tayla McCutheon and Tahila Drew in the Junior Female Championship classes who all had maximum scores Hayley Ball who only dropped one moto and Nicole Kenny and Charlotte Gamble who went into the last moto of the Female Senior Championship tied for first, with Nicole winning the Championship.

In the Veterans Championship classes, the winners were, Peter Stapleton 35-39, Aaron Hunt 40-44, Wes Hicks 45-50, Darryl Gardner 50-59 and Peter Boyle 60 and over.  Peter had won the 1976 Queensland 125 Motocross Championships in Rockhampton on a track on the northern side of the city forty-one years ago.  He also finished fourth if the 45 to 60 years classes were combined.
