Practice Days

What is a Practice Day?
We hire the track the day before our race meetings so competitors can sort out their bike and get some extra practice. Left over spaces are made available to non-competitors and a link will be put on our Entry Forms page for bookings.  

Note: this day is run the same as a Public Ride Day and you can use any bike and equipment that meets those rules. Your bike does not have to be fully race prepared.

Do you have to Book?
Competitors can book a place on their Entry Form.
Non-competitors can book through the link on this page.  Places may be limited in some Groups so it is advisable to book in advance.  And if you just turn up at the track hoping for a vacancy, you will have to pay cash.

Do you need a Track Licence?
You must have a current Competition or Recreation Licence issued by Motorcycling Australia . If you don’t, you can add a One Day Recreation Licence to your booking. This will be issued at the track when you sign in.

Which Group will I be in?
Groups are based on speed and experience and run in rotating 15 minute sessions.  It is very important that you choose the correct group for your own safety and those around you.  However, groups are flexible, so if you are found to be in the wrong group, or riding in a dangerous manner, we will take appropriate action.

Garages and Fuel:

A shared space in a Pit Lane Garage for ONE BIKE is included in your booking fee. Fuel is available from the On The Run servo near the track.

MALLALA:
We do not control the Pit Garages, they have to be hired direct from the management of Mallala Motor Sport Park. You can book a Garage at (08) 8276 7744 office hours or do it at the track when you arrive.  In 2019, the cost was $75/day for a 2 bike garage (share with a mate?) and they accept credit cards. Avgas, E85 and 98 fuel can be bought at the self serve (credit card) bowser near scrutineering. Note: if you don’t want to book a garage, the grassed area at the rear of the Pits is free.
