The 7th of December will be a history making day for not only the members of the Macleay District Motorcycle Club, but also for all of the people of Kempsey, when they become among the first in Australia to have a chance to see a whole new form of motorcycle racing.
The Sultans Of Slide is a completely new event which includes some of the usual dirt track racing machines, but also a completely new class which will see Harley-Davidsons, Triumphs, Aprilias, and even the new Indian FTR1200 flat tracker take to the race track for the very first time.
Not only that, the track will include jumps, so you'll be seeing these amazing machines fly through the air in ways their makers really never intended.
To top it off, some of the best riders in the world will be here, taking on the best home grown Macleay talent.
Max Whale, fresh from a stint racing Flat Track in the USA will be here, and multiple time national champions Michael Kirkness and Jarred Brook will all strut their stuff around the Greenhill Speedway, which has undergone a facelift with a new extension to the track to allow for the big bikes and the new racing format.
Also coming will be the famous Matty Mac and Tommy "Gun" Edwards, who will both be riding their new Indian FTR1200 race bikes.
This series will be the first time in Australia that the two huge American brands, Harley and Indian, will do battle on Australian race tracks, and the action is sure to be fierce.
The action will be hot all day, with a huge program of both junior and senior racing that will thrill crowds and provide a spectacle the likes of which has never been seen before in Australia.
"The Sultans Of Slide is a fantastic new innovation in our sport, and to have the best riders in the country coming to Kempsey to fight it out on these amazing motorcycles will be a fantastic spectacle for the locals to come and see," CEO of Motorcycling NSW David Cooke said
"We have some of the best riders in the world here in Australia, and to be able to watch iconic brands like Indian, Triumph, and Harley do battle on the Greenhill Speedway will be a sight not to be missed. Everyone should come and see this, it will be incredible".
Racing will start on Saturday the December 7 around 9.30am and run all day at Greenhill Speedway, entry via Alverton st.
