EXCITEMENT is mounting as the count-down to the next Launceston Motocross and Scramble Club grass track meeting continues.
President John Philp said that next Sunday's grass track meeting, at the Ferny Hills Road property of Sally and Keith Lethborg, marked the half-way point in the club championship.
"This will be the third round of the championship, which consists of three grass track meetings and three motocross meetings," Philps said.
Josh McCarthy and his sister Emily are looking forward to a better round than either enjoyed last time out.
Josh jarred himself when he came off, but Emily spent three days in hospital after knocking herself out in a crash.
Father Andrew said that Josh, who rides pro-open, and Emily, who rides pro-lite and the women's class, had been training well and were ready for Sunday.
But off-road action is not confined to just next weekend, it continues into July.
Philp said that the club would host a motocross practice round at Santarena Park on Sunday, June 22, and the third round of the five-round Tasmanian Motocross Championships, also at Santarena Park, is on Sunday, July 6.
