Wollongong Motorcycle Club
Wollongong Motorcycle Clubâ€™s Mt Kembla complex is home to one of the best motocross tracks around. It is the home track of Jay and Ryan Marmont and has also been the location of many ADB tests, including the 250cc and 450cc motocross shootouts in 2012 and the recent goggle test in issue #405. It caters for motocross riders as young as three, trials riders and, thanks to the recent addition of a bush loop, is also now an enduro destination.
Motocross riders are well looked after at Mt Kembla, with the centrepiece being the seniorsâ€™ MX track thatâ€™s carved into the side of the hill. It features big elevation changes, loads of corners and a good selection of tabletops, step-ups, step-downs, as well as a few fun rhythm and whoops sections. Kids on 50cc and 65cc machines can cut some laps on the beginnersâ€™ track out the back. This small kidney-shaped track is perched on top of the hill, above the seniorsâ€™ track, for the little ones starting out.
A recently cut-in enduro loop has opened a world of opportunity for every rider who drives through the gate. The 7km loop weaves through the dense bush surrounding the MX track and will test your skills on the slippery, off-camber corners and the creek crossing. Itâ€™s open to seniors and juniors and, depending on your speed, is about a 10-12 minute adventure, with a few nice hills thrown in.
The complex is open four days a week for general practice on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 9am-4:30pm, and Wednesday for juniors only from 3:30pm-6pm.
