Cosy Creek riders too slick for rivals
Manjimup Motorcycle Club president Greg Banfield shows off the Best South West Club trophy for 2012 alongside young gun Riley Craig.

Manjimup Motorcycle Club has been crowned the best club in the South West Interclub Series after a season of competition against Denmark, Albany, Busselton and Collie.

Generally each club, along with Bunbury, will host two race meets per season for a total of 12 events, but Manjimup president Greg Banfield said Bunbury was not involved in 2012, and each club held just one meeting each.

‘‘But it’s much more of a social event than anything, nobody really goes out there super trophy hungry,’’ he said.

‘‘The club who hosts the first event of the season is likely to see the most support, at the start when everyone is super keen.’’

Manjimup Motorcycle Club is seeking funding to install a reticulation system at its Cosy Creek circuit, which will ensure the track is rideable year round.

‘‘Right now we can ride from the first rain of the winter until about now, October,’’ Banfield said.

‘‘Any other time of the year it’s just too dry, it’s like riding on concrete.’’

The club will host its final all ages Come and Try Day this Saturday.

Non-members are encouraged to attend, with entry for riders being $10, with a free sausage sizzle.
