QuadridersSA MX Season under ASA.

QuadridersSA has been planning with the Australian Sidecar Association (ASA) for 2018 to be our most exciting Motocross season ever.

Since the 2014 State Title event at Murray bridge where QuadridersSA invited the Sidecar discipline into our race format, both clubs have been further strengthening their relationships so both disciplines benefit from the best MX events.

There was a lot more to it than flipping a coin, and together we have decided that the administration for the season needs to be managed by one club with 100% commitment of the other.  ASA have generously put their hand up for the lead management role since 2015.

“ASA want to maximise the concept and make it the most inviting and inclusive discipline combining model, so we have settled on a two year program to ensure we can solidly grow the concept”  said ASA President Rocky Warren.

The Five Round MX Series will consolidate ATV and Sidecar disciplines into appropriate grids as approved by Motorcycling South Australia (MSA).  This will enable 10 to 11 Race Grids at each event.

For QuadridersSA members and any other ATV club entrant the ASA MX Series will cater for the following 5 ATV MX classes:

·         50cc non-comp 4-U9

It is most likely that our beginner Recreational class will be combined with and run on track at the same time as the 50cc Sidecar class for 3 laps.  Actual track sections used will vary appropriate to riding abilities.

·         Junior 90/110 Limited 7-U11, and 90/125 Comp 8-U12

These two classes will race together but be scored separately for a race duration of 4 laps.

·         Junior 200/250 Comp 12-U16

Note that this 2015, 200cc 2 stroke and 250cc 4 stroke class name still includes the Yamaha Raptor and Honda TRX 300cc machine exceptions as per the 2015 GCRs.  Racing for 4 laps.

·         ATV Women, ATV Veterans, ATV Clubman(Novice)

A combination of Senior classes all racing for 4 laps but scored separately.  Note the “Novice” side-note to Clubman specifying that this class is for the low skill or entry skill level Senior riders.

·         ATV Open

All skilled Senior ATV riders.  This class allows Senior riders of all skill levels to race in a proper Championship class format and push their skills up for 12min+1lap race duration.

ASA will appoint an experienced ATV Liaison responsible for ATV technical advice to ASA Management and ATV entrant grading.

Entry fees will not be increased due to the ‘Closed to Club’ entry format.  It has been agreed that a five dollar financial figure will be transferred out of the normal race entry fee to cover single event membership to ASA at each event.

“I’m really happy that we could come to this arrangement so that we can keep costs down for Quad families and all entrants.  Both clubs can see the fair side of this agreement and are more focussed on keeping fees down and maximising total entries to make the season work”  said Verity Hendy QuadridersSA President in 2015.

QuadridersSA and ASA are looking forward to a big motorcycling future and further strengthening the growing relationship between our two disciplines.

Practice Days and Social MX riding will be organised by both clubs from time to time, with some very fun events being organised.  Keep an eye out for the pre-season events coming up.

MX Overview:  

An action packed day awaits you. QuadridersSA hire a diverse range of dirt motocross tracks each year for your enjoyment. Tracks are controlled circuits of 800m to 2.4km offering varying jump sizes, bumps and corners.  

Racing intensity and duration varies across the classes on offer, which are designed to cater for all skill levels.  QuadridersSA run Juniors from 4 years upward and our older MX racers are in their 50's.  Senior 'Clubman' is our beginner level Senior competition class where anyone can come along and play on the track without the high level Competition stresses and serious race pressure.  Racing is fun at all levels and you'll find every member will help you both on and off the track.

 

What you need in order to ride:

  • Your own ATV  / Quad
  • Other motorcycles are also allowed at some QuadridersSA events.  Like MX Practice days and ride days at Meningie.  Keep in mind that our 5 round series will be run under ASA management and combining the disciplines and Sidecars in one day may not leave enough room in the day for 2 wheel classes (at ASA discretion). For more information on which machines can attend each event, contact the relevant Event Co-ordinator.
  • Helmet, body armour, goggles, gloves, long sleeves and MX pants and boots are required (2015 GCR 18.9.4).

Many experienced club members race in more than the minimum MX gear and clothing as per the General Competition Rules.  Exceeding the minimum requirement is encouraged. More is always better.

Licenses:

Mandatory MSA (Motorcycling South Australia) charges for Junior Recreational day licences are available for these events at a cost of $30.00 per Junior, and Competition class licenses are $60 per person. There are no Club charges in this respect.

Stay tuned for further details.
