The Transmoto 8-Hour at Coffs Harbour is a unique, team-based dirt bike event that’s somewhere between a recreational trailbike rally and an enduro race. Staged at a premium private property in the motorcycle-friendly township of Ulong (in the Coffs Harbour hinterland, where the 2007 Australian 4-Day Enduro ran to rave reviews), the Transmoto 8-Hour kicked off for the first time in 2019, and firmly established itself as one you don’t want to miss.
Transmoto Track Director, Lyndon Heffernan, who ran Detour Tours in the Coffs region for many years, still raves about the region and its riding terrain: “Coffs and the inland townships of Ulong and Dorrigo have long been notorious riding destinations for off-road fanatics in Oz, so it’s been a great opportunity for Transmoto to expand its Enduro Events into ‘Big Banana’ territory. I still think about the memorable 4-Day we ran in the area in 2007, and especially the grasstrack special test that spectators could watch from Ulong Ex-Services Club. For the inaugural 8-Hour at this epic private property, track builder Hayden Timms created one of the best loops we’ve ever seen, with the perfect combination of grasstrack and bush trails to suit riders of varying skill levels.”
Underlining community support for the event, the Ulong Ex-Services Club welcomes patrons, public and fans to watch the action from their public viewing platform, with access to a full range of food and beverages. The Ulong General Store has all the coffee, food and supplies you’ll need, plus assist with the P&C food stalls at the event to ensure all participants are well fed all weekend.
Race it or ride it; run a motocross weapon or trail sled; fly in and fly out or make a weekend’s surf-and-moto roadtrip out of it with your mates … take your pick. But be sure to be part of what has already established as a must-do annual moto pilgrimage for racers and riders alike.
