“We’re very proud to run the fourth Australian Historic Road Racing Championship in WA and we have run three before. The upgrades made to the Collie Motorplex will be very suitable for historic bike racing. The local Chamber of Commerce are getting right behind us and it will be one of the best events to occur in Collie for a long time. The committee is really on-board and we can’t wait. “It will take place during Queen’s Birthday weekend and this will offer a great time for spectators to come and check out the event. We are going to do our best to encourage interstate riders to take part and we have methods in place to assist in transporting bikes for competitors.”

“It means a lot to MWA to have this event come to our state. It’s a national championship and the ultimate destination for historics. It also gives a chance for our local riders to show off their skills at a major event and go for the title. The Collie Motorplex is ideally located and its recently had an extension which will make it one of the most exciting tracks in WA. It’s also worth noting, the HCMC of WA have done an excellent job in the past of running and promoting the championship and I’m sure they will raise the standard once again. We really appreciate having a major championship here and I’m sure it will attract many spectators come race weekend.”
