Loxton ready to race!

South Australia’s Riverland town of Loxton is forecast to turn on the sunshine, and the
racing, for Round 2 of the UniSA Australian Human Powered Vehicle Super Series this
More than 120 sleek HPVs and thousands of riders, team staff and supporters will converge
on the rural centre where the main street forms part of the demanding circuit.
“Loxton is a place we really enjoy bringing the event to. It consistently provides exciting
racing, teams find it both challenging and rewarding, and when combined with the
tremendous local business and community support, the package is all there,” stated
Chairman of the Series, Andrew McLachlan.
The town based track provides technically challenging components, long fast downhill
sections, its’ share of climbing and all in a welcoming community atmosphere. “It is a
popular draw card for locals and visitors alike,” added McLachlan.
Wattle Racing’s Ironbark heads into Round 2 in the overall series lead after taking the win
at Round 1 in Mt Gambier by 53 secs ahead of Team Relentless’ Trump Trumps, a close
result after 8 hours of racing!
The 6 Hour race will be waved away by Loxton Australia Day Citizen of the Year Award
winner for 2019, Lorraine Fielke, at 10am on Sunday the 5th of May.
The event would not be possible without the tremendous and ongoing support of the Loxton
Waikerie Council, the Loxton Chamber of Commerce, Visitor Information Centre and the
local business community.
