THE Gunnedah Motorcycle Club is gearing up for one of its biggest events of the year, as part of the Weeks of Speed program.
Riders from across the region and beyond are expected to flock to the Balcary Park track to battle it out in a number of different competitions.
Club president Anthony Dall said the event was set to have "something for everyone".
"This year we are offering everything from the farm-bike class, right up to the unlimited class and the side cars," Dall said.
"All up, there will be 110 races on the day and a lot of our local young guns like Tom Donnelly and the Jaeger family will be in action.
"We've got riders from places like Tamworth and Tuncurry coming in, so it should be a great event."
Saturday's event will mark the club's second annual Weeks of Speed event and this year's entry numbers are on the rise.
"This year we have about 90 entries, while last year we had about 70, so it is certainly becoming more popular," Dall said.
"What's really pleasing about this year's event is the amount of junior riders taking part.
"Of the 90 entries, we will have three grids of seniors, but the other 60 entries are all juniors.
"We've had a really good amount of nippers coming through as well, which is really pleasing.
"Overall, we've got awesome junior numbers at the moment and hopefully that can continue going forward."
Dall said the club's ability to host high-profile competitions was a major draw card of Saturday's event.
"In September we are hosting the junior titles and I think quite a few of the entrants from out of town will be keen to use Saturday as a bit of a practice," he said.
"It's really great our major events are having an overflow-effect on events like Saturday. Anything that brings more people into town and more people to the sport is a positive."
Saturday's action begins from 3pm after the park gates open at 12pm.
"It's $5 per person and a really great day out for the whole family," Dall said.
"We've got full canteen and bar facilities available, so it should be a great event."
