Terrace motocross readies for race

The Terrace Motocross Association will be starting off the motocross season for the BC Motocross Association's north series this weekend.

The Terrace Motocross Association (TMA) will be starting off the season for the BC Motocross Association’s north series with its first race of the season this weekend.

Racing will take place out at the motocross track, located just past the Northwest Regional Airport.

Registration takes place at the track this Friday at 6:30 p.m. and racing will start at 9 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

The event is open to the public for a small fee and there will be a food vendor on-site and some chairs for spectators to use, but the TMA advises viewers to bring their own chairs if possible.

Sue Kawinsky from the TMA said she expects between 125 – 170 riders from anywhere in B.C. at the event, although most of the riders are will probably come from Williams Lake and northward.

She invited anyone interested to sign up or come out and enjoy the show.

“Come out and support our local riders, our club has been growing over the last few years and we encourage people to come out and watch our locals.” Kawinski said. “It’s always an entertaining weekend.”

The TMA will host another weekend-long BCMA race July 21 – 22

President of the TMA, Earl Houlden said that improvements were made to the motocross track during the off-season.

This includes a new section of track, which will add roughly around five to 10 seconds to the lap time of riders, as well as obstacles that have been added to the racetrack.
