Your Motorcycle

All motorcycles must be deemed road worthy/track worthy before they can be used on the track.

The following items will be scrutineered on the day of your event:

  • All treaded tyres must have a minimum of 2mm tread depth above the wear indicator at the beginning of the day – this includes centre as well as sides. If subsequent inspection during the day shows the tyre to be on or below the tread depth indicator access to the track may be denied
  • Slick tyres can be used, though track access may be denied if the track is deemed unsuitable for slick tyres
  • Front and rear brake pads must be deemed to have suitable material
  • Tyres cannot have any puncture repair of any type.
  • Front and rear brake disc rotors must be above minimum thickness as per manufacturer specifications (this measurement is stamped on the rotor carrier)
  • Front and rear brake lines must be secured correctly and must not leak or weep fluid
  • Front & rear brakes must operate correctly upon testing
  • Fork seals must not show any signs of leaking or weeping fluid
  • There must be no evidence of oil leaks or weeps of any kind
  • Fairings must be secured correctly
  • Foot pegs and mounting brackets must be secured and aligned correctly
  • Exhausts must be secured by all mounting points
  • There must be no evidence of fuel leaks of any kind
  • Levers or pedals that are bent and deemed difficult to operate must be repaired or replaced
  • Throttles must snap back to the off position when released
  • There must be no evidence of fuel leaks of any kind
  • Handlebars must be secure
  • It is recommended that mirrors be removed or taped up

Remember, the idea of scrutineering is to make sure your motorcycle is safe for use and not a hazard for others. While we will make every endeavour to ensure any issues can be fixed, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure YOUR motorcycle is safe to use. As no refunds will be given and resources to repair issues are limited it is imperative you follow the 7 P’s to success (proper prior preparation prevents piss poor performance).

If you have any questions about the suitability of your motorcycle do not hesitate to contact the club.

Riding Gear

All ride day participants need the following:

  • Leather Jacket and leather pants that zip securely together, or one piece leather suit
  • Leather motorcycle boots that cover the ankle and overlap the pants – no skin to be visible
  • Leather motorcycle gloves
  • Full face helmet of minimum Australian standard AS1698 (or equivalent) with no damage
  • Back protectors are not mandatory but are highly recommended
  • NO sparky kneesliders!

Camera Policy

Using a video camera is a great way to remember the day and can also help improve many aspects of your riding.

Cameras can be used at Mac Park but not only do they need to be securely mounted to your motorcycle, they need to be secured with a secondary tether as well. This needs to be scrutineered before track access is allowed.

Cameras may only be mounted to your motorcycle. Strictly no helmet or body mounts allowed.

Any footage released publicly that is deemed inappropriate for any reason (such as crashes or situations that result in injury to a participant) may result in legal action and/or being banned from the track in the future. Please use discretion and common sense and if in doubt, ask.
