Slashing tracks with Goondiwindi Motorcycle Club

The Goondiwindi Motorcycle Club are the proud new owners of a Howard slasher thanks to support from the Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations program.

The Goondiwindi Motorcycle Club volunteers

The Goondiwindi Motorcycle Club track is run by volunteers and offers a range of competitive and non-competitive motocross events for children and adults.

Treasurer, Jordan McGregor said the club has a proud history dating back to the 1970s and a strong membership of motocross riders who are there to have fun, be safe and compete to their best of their ability.

“The Goondiwindi Motorcycle Club is set on 40 acres and we maintain 10 of these for motocross riding and camping,” he said.

“Our rural setting means when it comes to rolling up our sleeves, our members contribute when and where they can to make sure our track is prepped and ready for racing.

“The slasher is going to be invaluable for effective and efficient ground maintenance which will benefit our sporting community.”

The Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations program offers funding between $1,000 and $4,000 for individuals and organisations in regional areas along the route that contribute to local and regional prosperity, wellbeing, and sustainability.

Applications for the next round of funding close on 31 July 2022.
