TRANSMOTO 8-HOUR: SOLD OUT
Two months before the race itself has got under way, there’s been a race to secure entries for the inaugural Transmoto 8-Hour at Coonabarabran on July 15-16. Yes, high demand has seen the 2017 Transmoto 8-Hour, powered by KTM & Husqvarna, sell out in less than two days! To those who managed to score an 8-Hour entry for either the Ironman, Pairs or Teams (of four) classes this year, congratulations. To those who missed out, our commiserations. With entries capped at 500 riders, we simply couldn’t accommodate everyone. All we can do is point to the merciful fact that there are three more awesome events on the 2017 Transmoto Enduro Event calendar, so we genuinely hope to see you at one or all of them.
WHAT ARE THEY?
They’re team-based dirt bike events that sit somewhere between a recreational trailbike rally and a full-blown enduro race, and cater to riders with an average to advanced skill level. Technically they’re races, but you can race or simply ride them. Teams are welcome to take the events as seriously or light-heartedly as they want.
WHERE ARE THEY?
All Transmoto Enduro Events are staged on private properties, which are situated in the picturesque rural heartlands of NSW, Queensland or Victoria. That means both registered trailbikes and non-registered motocross bikes are welcome, and that there’s no need to have a road motorcycle licence to take part.
WHEN ARE THEY?
- Event 1: Transmoto 12-Hour – Batemans Bay, NSW, March 25-26, 2017
- Event 2: Transmoto 8-Hour – Coonabarabran, NSW, July 15-16, 2017
- Event 3: Transmoto 6-Hour – Conondale, Qld, August 12-13, 2017
- Event 4: Transmoto 6-Hour – Stroud, NSW, September 9-10, 2017
- Event 5: Transmoto 8-Hour – Dargo, Vic, October 28-29, 2017
Rider registration and briefing for all events is held on Saturday, with racing on Sunday.
THE ‘VIBE OF THE THING’
Rider etiquette has always been a big part of Transmoto’s events. We encourage good sportsmanship, care and courtesy towards other riders because we want everyone to have a good, positive experience – whether that’s on the track, in the camping area, or on the access roads leading to and from the event venue.
