"Dirt", December 1, 2012


The track at Coolum is about 15 minutes’ drive from Maroochydore airport and just 5km from the coastal town of Coolum Beach. The dark, sandy depths of the circuit create a challenging track for riders as it becomes rough and tough as it ruts up and forms some serious braking bumps into and around the sandy turns. Corner speed is rewarded around this circuit, especially on the small-bore machines raced at the Australian Junior Motocross Championships, as the surface saps horsepower as the bikes churn through the deep soil.
