Young and old assemble for the Classic Weekend!
Not many events offer free reign over arguably the best natural terrain moto park in Australia, especially for pre-1995 riding enthusiasts!
The TeamMoto Classic Weekend presented by Motul, now in its second year at Green Park in Conondale on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, will host hundreds of riders across five tracks on June 11-13, 2021.

The Classic Weekend features workshops, entertainment, a trade alley, show and shine, camping, live demonstrations and a huge raffle draw of awesome range of prizes from event partners including Motul Oils, plus a vintage dirt bike being drawn on Saturday evening.
The Classic Weekend Show and Shine, always a hit.
Among the riders will be Jeff Leisk, who in 1988 won all three classes (125cc, 250cc and 500cc) at the Australian MX Championships. Jeff was the first Australian to win a 500cc MX GP in Finland in 1993, made it to multiple AMA supercross podiums, won the Paris Supercross in 1990 and came second at the World Supercross in 1990.

Jeff said “I never kept anything from my racing career, but recently I purchased a 1984 CR500, which was a bike I previously rode and will be bringing to ride at Classic Weekend. I also bought a 1990 HRC CR500 replica of the 1990 championship bike, which I’m restoring at the moment. Both bikes will be on display at TeamMoto tent. I can’t wait to ride Green Park again and catch up with everyone. I’ve joined forces with the TeamMoto group and am looking forward to helping get more riders on two wheels in the future.”

TeamMoto Kawasaki Maroochydore and TeamMoto Yamaha Sunshine Coast will be onsite all weekend with a range of motorbikes, parts and accessories. If you have any specific parts that you need, please call the shops in advance and they can bring it to Green Park for collection.
The Shannons Pre-78 MX Track is always epic!
The vintage event is a non-competition, recreational ride so you can ride as many laps or as little as you like across the five tracks! Shannon’s will be hosting the Pre-78 MX track, with a second “open” MX track for all pre-95 bikes, plus a vinduro loop, trials area and popular grass track for riding Saturday and Sunday.
Be sure to bring some dollars to buy or sell your bikes in the Carmart bike yard. Young Henrys will be serving the people each afternoon and into the evening with the finest beverages, and hosting a live band on Saturday night. The Sunshine Coast Historical Bike Society with a display too.
Camping is available on Friday and Saturday nights with hot showers and facilities available for all participants, great food and coffee, plus all-day riding Saturday and Sunday.
