Urgent Competitor Notice - Change to Day One

Posted on 16.10.2011

Event Management reviewed the race course with Bidgemia Station owner Lochie McTaggart yesterday (15th October). On the whole we are very pleased with progress of track marking which should be completed by mid-week and a final inspection during the week leading up to the 2011 Dash.

The one area of extreme concern is access to the new Wyndham section, leg four Day One. The extent of flood damage to the sole access road was not immediately apparent from the aerial survey. The damage did become evident when Mr McTaggart commenced repair work and the assessment yesterday confirmed recovery of race machines would be very difficult. Race Director Paul Kelly explains "Wyndham is east of the main track and very inaccessible at the best of times. We are very concerned that recovery may not be completed same day and this may ruin the weekend for competitors who could get their machine going overnight and race Day Two. We have taken the decision to delete the Wyndham leg".

The 2011 Dash course will be challenging enough and Mr McTaggart thoughts are "This is an entirely different track to past years. I believe every competitor needs to ride to the conditions and in 2011 you will be getting a second crack at the same track Day Two, something new in Dash history".

The question of fuel refunds for Wyndham will be handled at registration. Alternatively competitors may wish to donate that fuel cost to our flood recovery efforts, if so a simple email - click here
