What a start to the KTM SEQJMX Series with 325 Riders lining up at the Rum City Motorcycle Club.

Rum City Motorcycle Club did a fantastic job hosting the first round. It was smiles all round with the friendly family atmosphere. The club put in new state of the art start gates and riders were able to use the electronic start board, a first for most of the riders. Volunteers worked tirelessly to keep the track in top condition, facilities clean and families were treated to a huge and tasty range at the canteen.

The crew of officials were very pleased with how the event went and have had lots of positive feedback with many riders looking forward to round 2 at Kilcoy on September 16 & 17.

The series promotes family fun and it was great to see a number of riders, and some parents, jumping into the river for an afternoon swim and some laughs after the days racing.

The standard on competition seemed higher than last year with 385 bikes contesting classes from 50cc Demo through to Veterans. Very pleasing to see, the event was injury free. Lots of great racing with some classes fielding full grids of 40 starters. The skilled A & B grade riders raced separately to the C grade riders in the junior classes. This is always popular as it gives the C grade riders confidence and the A & B riders get to battle it out.

The club also arranged the local news crews to come and get some great stories and showcased some of their local riders and some great footage aired on local TV of some of the racing.

Looking forward to the next round. Don’t forget to get those entries in via nominate
