Women on Wheels motocross series heading to Warwick

MOTOCROSS: More than 50 women will be in action in the third and final round of the Women on Wheels (WoW) Motocross Series in Warwick this weekend.

Round 1 was in Toowoomba and round 2 at Goondiwindi. 

Warwick Dirt Bike Club treasurer Sarah Williams said the WoW series was aimed at women in motocross giving them their own race in each class.

"There are also classes for men from 50cc to seniors,” she said.

"We are hoping to attract 150 riders from all over South East Queensland.

Series co-ordinator Mel Stagg hails from Coolum and said organisers were excited to bring the final WoW round to Warwick.

"It is a great track at Morgan Park and the club has been working hard to get everything in order,” she said.

"We are looking forward to crowning our class champions at the end of the weekend.”

Four Warwick club members, president Loki Lee, Daniel Gustafson, Trey Williams and Kaleb Baker will be competing in the men's classes. 

Lee and Trey Williams are sitting four in the championships in their respective classes.

Both are keen on competing on their own track and making the podium by the end of the series.

Lee is in unlimited senior men's support and Trey in the 85cc 12-under 16 years male support class.

There is free admission at the weekend to the dirt bike complex.

One of the vantage points to watch the action is from the bridge near the canteen. Action starts at 8am Saturday and Sunday at Morgan Park.
