Racing returns to North Island motocross track

The Tri-Port Motorbike and ATV club is inviting North Islanders to enjoy motocross racing action at no charge

Utilizing a free, one-time promotion, the Tri-Port Motorbike and ATV club is inviting North Islanders to enjoy high-flying motocross racing action at no charge when the Vancouver Island Motocross Association hosts a pair of Island season series races at the local track this weekend.

Events five and six on the VIMX season series are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at Seven Mile Track between Port McNeill and Port Hardy, across from Seven Mile Landfill.

The two days of racing — and a Friday evening practice session — will bring riders from clubs across the Island to challenge their North Island counterparts.

For this weekend only, the Tri-Port Motocross club is offering free admission to determine how many local fans are interested in attending.

Racing begins at 10 a.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Awards will be presented following Sunday’s final motos.

A concession will be open, and paid flagging positions are available. For more info, contact Mark at 250-956-9873.
