VMX Magazine Classic Dirt 16 is at Grevillia, NSW, just twenty minutes north of Kyogle and is part of the beautiful Northern Rivers area. Indeed, the Richmond River trickles along at the bottom of the venue!
Turn back time with us
So at this event you really can ‘Turn Back Time’ to those years when scrambles and motocross tracks really were just pegged out on a grassy hillside and just like it was done at the original Classic Dirt – Classic Dirt 2000! Except there’s many more tracks to choose from these days – Pre ‘95, twinshock, vinduro loops, flat track and trials.
There’s the usual temporary toilets and showers but they’ll be better than the typical fare. The camping areas will be very well grassed and spacious. The township of Kyogle is only twenty minutes to the south while Woodenbong is only fifteen minutes to the north. Brisbane and the Gold Coast are each only a bit over two hours away. Kyogle has a good range of accommodation plus a supermarket, fuel and a few pubs. Good onsite catering and coffee will be present as always.
New this year
This year, we have two new elements that will be sure to bring some excitement and rewards.
- First, there’s the Legends Charity Auction which will happen late Saturday. There will be loads of clothing items signed by legends from around the world (jerseys, t-shirts, caps) plus some great memorabilia.
- We will also have a Charity Bike Raffle for a fabulous old Royal Enfield Trials bike, supplied by Surfside Motor Garage. All proceeds from the Auction and Raffle will go to the Perry Cross Spinal Research Foundation (https://www.pcsrf.org.au). The Charity Bike Raffle will be drawn Sunday lunchtime in conjunction with the Show and Shine.
As well, we have superstar restorer Joe Abbate coming to the event (courtesy of Harry and Rhonda Mason at BGK Motorcycle Restorations on 0415 342283) from the USA. Joe will be holding a resto seminar and Q&A session on both Friday and Saturday – not to be missed!
Plus, there’ll be all the same old elements of VMX Magazine Classic Dirt that you’ve come to know and love – trade stands, swapmeet sellers, Legends Laps and interviews, Show and Shine, live band on Saturday night and the trivia competition. Additional supporter: BGK Motorcycle Restorations.
