It’s that time of the year again, put this date on your calendar and come along to experience fast, furious Off Road Racing at its best only 26kms from Singleton!!
The annual Hedweld Milbrodale Mountain Classic Off Road Racing event is fast approaching. This year’s event will be conducted on the 2nd & 3rd July and will celebrate the 30th Anniversary of this local spectacular action packed event.
It is Round 4 of the NSW Off Road Championship, Round 1 of the Premier NSW Long Course Championship and Round 2 of the East Coast Tri Challenge.
This prestigious local event has been run for 30 years and has become one of the most significant events on the NSW Off Road Racing Calendar. The Hedweld Milbrodale Mountain Classic is run by the Hunter Valley Off Road Racing Association who are anticipating a large field of local and interstate entrants this year to see who can win the very sort after award of MAN OF THE MOUNTAIN!!
Day 1 (Saturday 2nd July) will definitely be action packed with the running of prologue (to set race start times) and Race 1 of medium course (4 laps). With drivers full of adrenaline and machines race prepared and ready for action, there should be no shortage of spectator advantage and excitement!
Day 2 (Sunday 3rd July) will not disappoint with more action for not only our competitors out on the track but also our sideline spectators who certainly received value for money. Spectators can enjoy 4 a breast start in race 3 for the short course heat. It is tight, fast, furious and a little bit hectic over the first jump and into the first corner, which will no doubt result in some great spectator viewing. After lunch the entire field will leave the arena to tackle the mountain for Race 4, which includes 6 laps of the long course (20km/per lap). The competitor that secures the fastest single lap of this heat will earn the prestigious title of “MAN OF THE MOUNTAIN”!!
The Milbrodale venue offers a great spectator area ensuring some spectacular action for all those wishing to enjoy the racing. Spectators also have a chance to get close to the cars and talk to the competitors when the pits are open to the public during the lunch break. This year we also have some celebrity appearances from past competitors, including some V8 supercar drivers who have previously competed in this event.
Food & drinks are available track side and the event also provides activities for the children including jumping castles, amusement rides etc. The event, facilities, organization and atmosphere rate this event as one of the best off road racing events in the country.
This event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, Hedweld Group of Companies (Platinum Sponsor); Bulga Open Cut Glencore, Promine Contracting & Lancaster Motor Group (Gold Sponsors); Myne Signs (Silver Sponsors); Southern Cross Austereo & The Newcastle Herald (Media Partners).
As always the Milbrodale Mountain Classic is generously supported by the local community with the Bulga Community Centre, Bulga Bush Fire Brigade and Milbrodale Public School all assisting while benefiting from the event.
During the weekend we raise money for very worthy causes, Witmore Enterprises, CanTeen and Simply Loving Taylor Inc.
Daily gate entry is $10.00 and children under 12yrs are free.
Definitely an event not to be missed so spread the word, pack the car with all you family & friends and head off to Milbrodale (25kms south of Singleton on the Putty Road) for a fantastic weekend of spectacular off road racing!!
