It’s that time of the year again, put this date on your calendar and come along to experience fast, furious Off Road Racing at its best only 20kms from Singleton!!
The annual Hedweld Milbrodale Mountain Classic Off Road Racing event is fast approaching. This year’s event will be conducted on the 20th & 21st July 2019 and will be yet another spectacular action packed event with some of the best Off Road Racer’s in the country expected to be competing. It is Round 3 of the NSW Off Road Championship, Round 1 of the NSW Off Road Enduro Series and Round 2 of the East Coast Tri Challenge.
This prestigious local event has been conducted for 33 years and has become one of the most prestigious events on the NSW Off Road Racing Calendar. The event is run by the Hunter Valley Off Road Racing Association and we are anticipating a large field of local and interstate entrants this year to see who can win the very sort after award of MAN OF THE MOUNTAIN!!
Day 1 (Saturday) will be definitely action packed with the running of prologue (to set race start times) and Race 1 of medium course (6 laps). With drivers, full of adrenaline and machines race prepared and ready for action, there should be no shortage of spectator advantage and excitement!
Day 2 (Sunday) will not disappoint with more action for not only our competitors out on the track but also our sideline spectators who certainly received value for money. Race 2 is 4 laps of the medium course. Spectators can enjoy 3 a breast start in Race 3 for the short course heat. It is tight, fast, furious and a little bit hectic over the first jump and into the first corner, which will no doubt result in some great spectator viewing. After lunch the entire field will leave the arena to tackle the mountain for Race 4, which includes 6 laps of the long course (approx. 20km/per lap) conditions permitting. The competitor that secures the fastest single lap of this heat will earn the prestigious title of “MAN OF THE MOUNTAIN”!!
The Milbrodale venue offers a great spectator area ensuring some spectacular action for all those wishing to enjoy the racing. Spectators also have a chance to get close to the cars and talk to the competitors when the pits are open to the public during the lunch break.
Food and drinks are available track side and the event also provides activities for the children including jumping castles and amusement rides. The event, facilities, organization and atmosphere rate this event as one of the best off road racing events in the country.
