It is with great sadness that we advise members of the passing of Joe Zappa.
Joe was a long time member and lover of all things on two wheels.His lovely Manx Nortons and ES2 Nortons were a credit to him and our club.Joe also enjoyed the Indian Harley Club's events and he and Erica also had some of the touring English Speedway riders stay with them over the years.Joe had a connection with the Collie Motorplex; he drove a truck there when it was a coal mine.Joe said he was pretty sure he was a distant relative of 60’s/70’s rock star Frank Zappa.Our most sincere condolences go to Erica and family.
- RIP Joe.

In an exciting announcement, the 2019 Australian Historic Road Racing Championship will be staged in Western Australia. Promoted by the Historic Competition Motorcycle Club of WA (HCMC), the meeting will be held at the CollieMotorplex from 27-30 of September 2019. https://m.facebook.com/groups/262764377208933/
Club President Bob Humphreys said; “We’re very proud to run the fourth Australian Historic Road Racing Championship in WA and we have run three before. The upgrades made to the Collie Motorplex will be very suitable for historic bike racing. The local Chamber of Commerce are getting right behind us and it will be one of the best events to occur in Collie for a long time. The committee is really on-board and we can’t wait.
“It will take place during Queen’s Birthday weekend and this will offer a great time for spectators to come and check out the event. We are going to do our best to encourage interstate riders to take part and we have methods in place to assist in transporting bikes for competitors,” concluded Bob.
MWA CEO, Rick Gill said; “It means a lot to MWA to have this event come to our state. It’s a national championship and the ultimate destination for historics. It also gives a chance for our local riders to show off their skills at a major event and go for the title.
“The Collie Motorplex is ideally located and its recently had an extension which will make it one of the most exciting tracks in WA. It’s also worth noting, the HCMC of WA have done an excellent job in the past of running and promoting the championship and I’m sure they will raise the standard once again.
“We really appreciate having a major championship here and I’m sure it will attract many spectators come race weekend,” according to Mr Gill.
