Don’t Forget

“The show at the start of 2014 had 280 bikes in the Russell Street road closure and thousands of locals who have shown with their attendance just how popular motorcycling is in Bathurst. We can hardly wait for motorcycle racing to return and Mayor Gary Rush is rumoured to be bringing NSW Local Government Minister Paul Toole on a motorcycle to discuss this at the opening’, said Mr Hirst.

Public admission is from 11am and is free. Set up time in Russell Street is 9am-11am.

See you there – Greg Hirst.
