24-hour race gears up
ONE of the longest-running
motorcycle races in the world
is set to bring extensive eco-
nomic benefits to the Light
Regional Council region.
The 24-Hour Reliability Trial
event will rev up this weekend
from Kapunda and is expected
to generate $150,000 in revenue
for the local economy.
A total of 187 riders are set to
take on the course, which will
use a combination of public
roads and private properties.
This year the event will use
public roads through the St
Kitts, Bagot Well, Anlaby, Wa-
terloo Plains, Mount Allen, Ka-
punda, Bagot Gap, Moppa and
Event president Glen Wun-
denberg said riders faced a gruel-
"They will be travelling from
Kapunda around the Greenock
area, through to Truro, down the
bottom of Accommodation Hill,
across and back over the north
hills through Anlaby and back
into Kapunda," he said.
"It's roughly about 1000 kms
they will do."
The 24-Hour Reliability Trial
event has a rich history and has
been running for 90 years, mak-
ing it the second-longest running
motorcycle competition in the
world, following the famous Isle
of Man Tourist Trophy Event.
Light Regional Council strat-
egy manager Nathan Cunning-
ham said the event brings riders,
teams, support crews and spec-
tators from across the state and
country to the region.
"This provides great exposure,
tourism and economic benefits
for the towns and for the re-
gion as a whole, both during the
event and through return visita-
tion," he said.
"The organisers have shown
a great willingness to work with
the council to minimise distur-
bance to its assets and we wish
them every success in hosting

general manager Chris McArdle

those undertaking the illegal ac-
"Access to areas for off-road
motorcycling is a problem, how-
ever to have motorcyclists cut
fences, ride unauthorised and
disturb stock is extremely disap-
pointing," he said.
"This behaviour has a very real
impact on the livelihood of farm-
ers, aside from damage and the
associated repairs, it can also lead
to stock losses."
Mr McArdle said he believed
the riders were rogue and not
members of Motorcycling SA.
"We are confident these riders
are not members of Motorcycling
SA clubs, as our clubs and mem-
bers operate within clear policies
and guidelines that relate to re-
sponsible riding," he said.
