The Motorcycle Sportsmen of Qld’s Women’s-Only Trackday Ladies Day at the Raceway returns to Morgan Park Raceway for the third running of this very popular day on 07/10/18. Nearly 60 women from a diverse selection of ages, riding experience and machines attended the 2017 event, many of whom were first timers on track and the 2018 event looks set to surpass that number.
Ladies Day at the Raceway is aimed at getting more women involved in motorcycle track riding and ultimately racing; participants are exclusively female and ride in groups segregated by laptime using timing transponders to ensure that everyone is sharing the track with riders of a similar pace
Women make up a significant percentage of road riders but only a very small percentage of road-race competitors, Ladies Day at the Raceway is aimed at getting women who ride motorcycles on road to come and give track riding a go in a controlled, friendly and supportive environment.
Ladies Day at the Raceway has all the aspects of a normal Sporties trackday, a purposefully low track density means there’s less bikes on track and plenty of room to have fun, club coaches ride as traveling marshals, and are on hand in the pits and on track to provide advice and guidance. In addition to this, Ladies Day at the Raceway has rider mentors made up from the ranks of female club racers, these rapid ladies are easily distinguished on track and in the pits with their custom Ladies Day vests worn over their leathers, rider mentors are picked to ensure a diverse selection of ages and bike capacities and are there to provide advice and answer any questions.
