FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

KORUMBURRA AWARDED SAFEST & MOST-IMPROVED TRACK IN GIPPSLAND

KORUMBURRA Motorcycle Club was awarded the safest and most-improved motorcycle track in Gippsland by Race Solutions at the 2013 Shell Advance Gippsland Motocross Championships in April.

The prestigious award was presented to Korumburra Motorcycle Club president Graeme Bird at riders briefing and was one the club was very proud to receive by Race Solutions, a medical a professional, dynamic and diverse group of volunteers committed to delivering a quality service in the provision of medical, safety, trackside and Incident Response services for motorcycle sport.

Graeme heaped praise on the previous committee responsible for the award: “This award has really recognised all the hard work that the previous committee, as well as the track committee, has done with the track. They are the ones that have put in all the effort to get it done,” Graeme said.

KMCC Track Manager Brendan Hemming was also ecstatic about the award: “It’s a fantastic award to receive. Safety has always been our motto at KMCC,” Brendan said.

Criteria for the award included safe access to the track, well-protected marshalling points and first-class medical rooms, all of which KMCC passed with flying colours.

“Over the last three-years the committee has made the club really succeed. The money that we take in from every event that we run is injected back into the club, track and facilities. We’ve also got one of the best canteens and first aid facilities in Gippsland,” Brendan added.

The KMMC track is located on Outtrim-Leongatha Road just south of Korumburra.

On the major upgrades to the 1.6 kilometre track itself, Brendan added: “We’ve upgraded our equipment by purchasing new gator blades and ripping devices to make the track safer. We’ve also changed the jumps and changed the track in such a way so that the smallest junior to the oldest veteran can ride the track.

“We’ve also made flag points safe by placing them well-back from the jumps with good standing and viewing areas,” Brendan said.

Last year the club hosted Round 3 of the 2012 Victorian Junior Motocross Championships in June and will this year host the final round of the 2013 Victorian Senior Motocross Championships in August.

“The club would really like to thank Peter Stewart who does the entire Bobcat work and Nick Sevnson who also works tirelessly for hours on end out on the track,” Brendan added.

The club also still runs motocross sidecars, and had over a dozen turn up at their last Come ‘n’ Try Day during the year to try the unique discipline, and the club has a long and storied history producing a number of past national champions.

“A huge thanks also needs to go to the young fellas who help out in Sam Burns, Nicholas Stewart, Tom Scott and Steven Forrester who have helped supply excavators, tractors, Bobcats and diggers. Also a big thanks to Nick Chapman who donates a lot of rock and soil for the track as well as Andy who is an earthmover and has put in a lot to get the track up and going,” Brendan continued.

“There’s also our club secretary Linda Stubbs who always puts in 125 per cent in every time,” Brendan added.

Motorcycling Victoria would like to congratulate all those involved who have made Korumburra Motorcycle Club’s track the safest and most-improved track in Gippsland.
