As we move into the second half of the year a few updates of things that are happening around the club. The Club has decided to not run the Thumper Cross this year and rather spend our time and efforts at Wonthaggi, and to encourage a few more members along to the practise and club days to be held at Wonthaggi we will be offering ½ price membership for the remainder of the year. Website will be set for ½ price membership from July 1st!

The club will be running Rounds 12 and 13 of the VORC at Rawson on the 22nd and 23rd of August and will be looking for helpers to run this event, if you are available please mark these dates in your calendar and shoot an email to to let him know you can make it.

A reminder that this Thursday (1st of March) the club will be having a short meeting at the clubrooms from 7:30 sharp.

Up for discussion will be this year’s Mk1 Motorcycles Off Road Club Champs and Round 3 / 4 of the VORC/AORC to be held at Wonthaggi.

Any VORC competitors that wants to work one of these rounds will need to register their interest and nominate which day they intend to work via email to before the first round this weekend.

DMCC then give this list to the VORC organising committee prior round 1 as after round 1, workers are not eligible for worker points if they haven’t nominated their working round.

Riders can then when entering for that round tick the “will work” box in the entry form.

The club will be looking for more workers for our VORC sprint round on the Sunday, as we plan to be running 3 sprint tracks.

Help us shape the year for the Mk1 Motorcycles Off Road Club Champs, without member input we can’t keep up the quality and quantity of our events!
