Late January – Mid December – Friday nights at 7:15pm to about 9:30pm
Check our race calendar for further details.
On Race night – you need to register in the ‘classes’ you wish to race BEFORE 7:15pm.
A Moto is 1 ’round’ of racing for each ‘class’ (i.e. 5-6yr Sprockets, 8yr Boys, 14+ etc)
Generally there are 3-4 Moto’s and a Final for each class.
If you are NOT a Sprocket (i.e. 8yrs and older) then you can enter more than 1 ‘class’ (i.e. 14+ and Cruisers) It would help to mention it to the race coordinators to help them give you a break between races.
I won’t go into all the details here – but basically a series comprises of (say) 5 Friday nights. To be eligible for prizes for a particular series – you need to have competed in (say) 4. So if a race series has (5/4) next to it – it means that it has 5 series & you need to have competed in 4 of them to be eligible for a ‘prize’. Your ‘score’ is tallied over the total Series. But even if you missed the first 2 nights of the series, you can still compete and have some fun.
Other events, like Mystery Trophy nights only require you to race that night – and you get to take home a trophy.
There are special Series, for example, State Series Cup, which each club plays host to 1 meeting (7 in total). These meetings are usually big race meetings, drawing riders from all clubs – even neighbouring States – and are a HUGE amount of fun – especially the Country Club meetings when traveling with other Happy Valley racers.
Other Clubs :
In South Australia there are 7 BMX clubs across the state. You should be able to find out from their web-site which nights they race.
Once you have your BMX Licence, you are not limited to only racing at Happy Valley. Each club hosts their own series of racing events.
