It has been 21 years since motorcycles have conducted laps around the mighty Mount Panorama, and for good reason. Australia’s most famous racetrack, the Mount Panorama Circuit in Bathurst, has spectacular views some 870m above sea level, with walls that confine an echoing sound that just screams history, adrenaline, and commitment.
Irving Vincent was invited to take on the challenge and experience the highs, lows, and straights of the famous Bathurst track.
Taking two sidecars, and two solo’s, Barry Horner piloted the P5 Sidecar with son Michael while two-time Isle of Man TT winner Cameron Donald and partner Kaz Anderson took their relationship to a new level aboard the P4 Sidecar.
North Coast V-Twins’ own, Ash Beaton, had the experience of a lifetime with son Beau Beaton. They rode the Irving Vincent Daytona winner and K-Tech specific four-valve 1600cc that sung songs up Mountain Straight, across the top, and back down the Conrod Straight.
Beau tested the K-Tech suspension on the back wheel and even got ‘squirmy’ across the top as he pushed the limits of the bike, on a track that is not known for its forgiveness.
The bikes conducted laps on all three days of the event, in collaboration with Repco and Irving Vincent.
An unforgettable experience, the event should be regarded as an achievement for the Irving Vincent and K-Tech Suspension brands. It’s our hope that many more motorcycles and sidecars get to spend more time on Australia’s most famous six kilometres of road.
But, if Irving Vincent running K-Tech Suspension was the last to tame the circuit, we can assure you it was done in style.
