RIDE DAY entries are via RIDERNET on the same entry link as racing, prior to the event.

HOW DO I ENTER?
Entry is through Ridernet (LINK ABOVE) You will need create a profile in order to enter events. Whilst we will accept ride day entry on the day and will accept cash on the day, this will be limited to the first couple of times per person. If you intend on regularly attending ride days, you will be required to utilise ridernet.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Ride days are $100 per round. If the entrant requires a single event license, this attracts a fee of $30. Thus for most ride day entrants, each ride day costs $130.
WHAT DOES SCRUTINERRING INVOLVE?
Your bike will be reviewed prior to being allowed on the track. Our scrutineers will check that your bike is in good repair, that brakes are functioning and brake pads have sufficient material, that your throttle closes on its own without sticking or jamming, that your tyres have sufficient life, that there are no leaking fluids, no loose bolts etc. This list is not exhaustive, but gives oyu an indication of things to check. If you are unsure about something, bring oyur bike down. There are a number of people around the club whom may be able to assist. Alternatively, bring your bike down the day prior (sat) and speak to any of the club members. Bikes do not need to be registered/roadworthy.
