Well what a great turnout for our Come N Try session. Awesome to see the riders of Townsville come out and have a go on the track, some on their own bikes, some on the club bikes, and some, thanks to the generosity of our own members, on personal race machines. Big pat on the back for everyone involved.
Drew.

Just an addendum to Drew's post, we had around 30 participants for the Come and Try Day and another 35 club members riding at the practice.
Well done RRAT, our biggest Come and Try in the club's history. All our publicity ventures paid off. Christine.

Good morning. The first day back at the track for 2017. Gates open at 10am however there is a junior coaching session being run from 8am, so you are most welcome to come in and set up earlier in the pits. Sign-on starts from 10am with bikes on the track around 11. We will be having a sausage sizzle around lunch time (gold coin donation/free for C&T participants) and we have plenty of cold drinks for sale. If you have any riding gear that you no longer use/need, this is the perfect day to sell or even just loan out to new members. Nominations will be accepted all day. SEE YOU AT THE TRACK !!! ...

ATTENTION ALL MX & DT Jnr Riders aged between 12 and 15 yrs. Our accredited coach, Mark Youman, will be conducting a coaching session on Saturday morning 4th February at Suncity Raceway, from around 8am. RRAT invites you to come out and ride the JCC bikes. As you would have already participated in a Kick Start, if you are deemed competent on the day, you can then be endorsed for Road Racing as well. We run the Junior Corporate Challenge Programme where the club supplies a bike for the year. If you like road racing, you can stay for the practice day, and who knows, even start racing on bitumen. We also welcome juniors who would like to start racing Supermoto (from 9 yrs). Our club days are always held on a Saturday so as not to conflict with the TMCC events. Numbers will be limited though and riders must have the correct safety gear (the club has **some gear available to loan). For any further info, please contact the club. ... See MoreSee Less

I have had a few queries with regards to the cost of RRAT memberships if you come out to the Practice on 4 February. If you join the club on the day, Family Membership is $25, Senior Membership $16.50 and Junior Membership is $12.50. This membership will remain current until 30 June, 2017. Of course you can still buy a one day membership for $15 but hardly worth it. For that price, RRAT will be holding a practice, one time trial event, two closed to club meets and Rd 1 of the NQ championship/interclub, and for those members who qualify to ride for RRAT, Rd 2 in Prossie. Hope this helps. Christine. ... See MoreSee Less

ATTENTION ; ALL JUNIOR & SENIOR SUPERMOTO RIDERS!!!

Australian Supermoto Championships is being held at Wannaroo, Perth November 18/19th.
We are seeking interest from those that would like to review attending.
We have been reviewing options of hiring a container and shipping the bikes over. Price of container will be dependent upon the number of bikes that are shipped, bring total price of container hire and transport is $8,900 including insurance cover of up to 150k.
Container will need 9 days transport each way.
Review container leaving RRAT 6th Nov this is a few days after RRAT Rnd 4. Container will then be delivered to Perth track on the 15th a few days ahead of the titles and allow access to bikes and equipment.
After titles container will be collected on the 20th and arrive back at RRAT on the 29th - this works for bikes to be back by the weekend for the RRAT TVL 200 - 2nd Dec. From current race calander the event that will be missed is FNQ Rnd 7 on 12th Nov.
With transportation of bikes and equipment arranged members can then fly direct to and from Perth. There is an option the arrange group transportation (mini-van) and accommodation to reduce costs.
This is a current request of interest from members - please respond with questions/concerns/interest and share with those that you think will enjoy this experience.
Once we start to review numbers we can confirm price - due to price and arrangement we will want to have majority of this finalized within the next few months.
