The Macleay District Motor Cycle Club has made a decision to go ahead with the Akubra Classic this weekend despite the high chance of rain.

“The forecast isn’t as bad as what it was a few days ago and we came to the decision to go ahead with the Akubra Classic,” Macleay District Motor Cycle Club president Jamie Oram said.

“There may be a bit of rain here and there but we believe we will be able to have two great days of racing.”

The Akubra Classic was post-poned in March this year due to the weather.

Racing will commence on Saturday morning with competitors from as young as four participating.

There will be more junior events held this year with races for Pee Wees up to the under-15s.

Cost of entry is $10 each for an adult while children under the age of 12 can attend for free with a full canteen available.

Two Australian champions will be on display with Luke Richards and Marty McNamara competing in the senior events.
