Bikes tear up track next to NQ Games cars

MOTORSPORT: With the threat of rain evaporating quickly, the bikes came out to play on Sunday at Whitsunday Raceway for the Whitsunday Motosports Club's track day.

New riders took advantage of fantastic conditions to enhance their skills and let their bikes of the leash in a more controlled environment than the streets.

Some riders made the trek from the north, giving themselves a great advantage with the Townsville Road Racing Association's closed to club race meeting next weekend.

Four riders took to the track for the first time and loved the experience with more track time on the agenda.
