WATCH: All the high-octane action from junior club day

WHEN current South Burnett Junior Motorcycle Club president Brent Perrett first took his son to the club three years ago, there were just three riders there.

Fast forward to last weekend's club race day and there were over 100.

"If you'd have seen the track one-and-a-half years ago, you wouldn't have believed what it was like," he said.

The improvements are a testament to the hard-working volunteers at the club.

"We have all put in a lot of our own time and equipment," Perrett said.

The South Burnett club's race day attracted 105 junior and senior riders from the club as well as riders from Warwick, Toowoomba and Kilcoy.

The club president for the last two tears was proud to announce that the Kingaroy based club will be hosting the South East Queensland Junior Motocross Series in September.

In what will be a huge boost to the region, between 300 and 400 of the best riders from Queensland, NSW and beyond will stay with their families in the South Burnett.

"This was what we aimed for the whole time," he said.

"We knew we had the facilities. We knew it could be an awesome venue."

The South Burnett motorcycle club has certainly come a long way in the space of two short years.

When Perrett took his son out for that initial practice day three years ago, the club was in dire need of some attention.

"The facilities were run down," he said.

"The club was pretty much closed down.

"We really wanted to get the club back to where it is today."

Now the club is in a good position, the committee is hoping to grow on their success.

"Our biggest aim is to make the track awesome to attract more people," Perrett said.

"But also still good for juniors to get around.

"We are in talks to get more of these state series races for next year."

South Burnett Junior Motorcycle Club will host the South East Queensland Junior Motocross Series on September 14 and 15.
