2018 A4DE: Entries Sold Out!

3 months ago | Words: Andy Wigan

Don’t say we didn’t warn you that entries for the 2018 Yamaha Australian 4-Day Enduro would be highly sought-after. Yep, here we are less than two weeks into 2018, and entries for the 4-Day have sold out.

So, does that mean organisers will open up additional entries for the 40th anniversary of the iconic annual event? Nope. As explained by Cessnock Motorcycle Club’s Malcolm Hall late last year in this interview with Transmoto, the 350-rider cap was put in place for a reason. “We’re focusing on making sure the trails, tests and entire experience is a memorable one for the riders,” said Hall, “and we believe a maximum of 350 riders will help us achieve that objective. Obviously, we’re over the moon that demand for this 40th anniversary 4-Day has meant entries sold out three months before the event, but our commitment to the 350-rider cap remains. The entry cap is also in place for logistical reasons; because daylight savings finishes the week before the event.”

While all 350 entries may have sold out, Hall pointed out that organisers have set up a waiting list for entries. Riders can get themselves on that list through the A4DE website, and no up-front payment is necessary.

And what about rumours that the Cessnock Racecourse would be used for the Cessnock 4-Day’s Final Moto. “Well, we’ve wanted to announce this exciting news for a while, but first had to sign-off of a few terms and condition with the Cessnock Racecourse,” Hall explained. “Using a horse racecourse was done very successfully back in 2005 when the 4-Day’s Final Moto was staged at the Wyong Racecourse, so we’ve like to think we can attract several thousand people to the Cessnock Racecourse on April 7 for this year’s A4DE – which is a significantly bigger crowd than what the venue gets to a major horse race meet. The Cessnock Racecourse is just two kilometres out of downtown Cessnock and has lots of parking and infrastructure, so it promises to be the perfect way to showcase the sport to a large audience,” Hall went on to say.

Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks for details about how you can enter the raffle to win a 2018-model Yamaha WR450F, which comes with a special, one-off 4-Day graphics kit. Just 350 raffle tickets will be available at $50 each.
