If you’re into motorcycles, you’ve probably had a roadtrip stopover at Nabiac to sample the local Hotel’s famous counter-meals or marvel at the paraphernalia on display at The National Motorcycle Museum. If you’re a rally car buff, you’ll know Nabiac as home to the 63-year-old Central North Coast Sporting Car Club (CNCCC). Or if history’s more your bag, Nabiac will be best known for its RAAF Base, operational during WWII.
But if you’re into riding dirt bikes, Nabiac will conjure up mouth-watering imagery of the Wallamba Valley’s rich, dark, sandy soils – one of the key reasons we expanded this year’s Transmoto’s Enduro Event calendar into this Mid North NSW Coast region. That and the convenient fact it’s just three hours’ drive north of Sydney, with ample accommodation options 20 minutes away in the surf-mad township of Forster/Tuncurry.
For 2019, the inaugural Transmoto 6-Hour at Nabiac will use the CNCCC’s extensive trail network to create an all-new, one-off 16-18km race loop – predominantly sandy trails through low-lying bushland, punctuated by open grasstrack sections and some fast firetrail – with a pit paddock that ingenuously incorporates the former RAAF airstrip.
Rider etiquette has always been a big part of Transmoto’s events. We encourage good sportsmanship, care and courtesy towards other riders because we want everyone to have a good, positive experience – whether that’s on the track, in the camping area, or on the access roads leading to and from the event venue.
