2020 VERi events announcement
17 June 2020

Who's keen for a ride? We are!

So, it appears that COVID-19 restrictions may be relaxed enough in the near future that we can think about running events again.

Depending on what happens in the next month or so, we are looking at running up to three events: Wandong (August), Beaufort (September) and Harrow (October). Please note that these locations and dates are only proposed and not confirmed at this time.

Bear in mind that we may have to make changes to the way events have been run in the past, especially regarding the number of entrants and camping arrangements.

We are working with relevant agencies and land-owners, and following government announcements closely. Hopefully, we will have some good news to announce soon.

When we know more details, we will publish them here and on Facebook.

A note about 2020 VERi events
5 May 2020

Our planned calendar for 2020 has been thrown into disarray due to COVID-19 social restrictions. However we are hoping to produce a new calendar for 2020 as soon as social restrictions are lifted enough to allow. We have a few events that could still be run this year, and we will announce the events and dates as soon as we can confirm them.

VMX Magazine Classic Dirt 16 - Rescheduling

20 April 2020

Official release from VMX Magazine:

VMX Magazine Classic Dirt 16, set down for the June long weekend, has been postponed along with every other event that was scheduled for the coming few months.

We can announce that we have a tentative replacement date of 16-18 October. That date was chosen as there are currently no other similar vintage events on that weekend, thus avoiding any date clashes. This date change has been brought about because of the coronavirus and directives from MA. Next year's event will still be held on our traditional date of the June long weekend.

As any new information comes to hand we will let you know. We do apologise for any inconvenience but as we're sure you are well aware, there?s so much in the current state of affairs that is completely out of our hands.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at (the rescheduled) VMX Magazine Classic Dirt 16, the original and best vintage and classic recreational dirt bike bike event!If you require any additional information, please contact Ken at

No politics, no racing, just natural terrain at its best!

Please share these dates with your mates, they won't want to miss out.
Event: VMX Magazine Classic Dirt 16
Date: 16 - 18 October 2020
Venue: Three Pines MX Park , Grevillia NSW

A3VE postponed until 2021

31 March 2020

The COVID-19 virus has caused major disruptions in our lives and it has become apparent that our original Australian 3 Day Vintage Enduro (A3VE) date this year is not viable. VERi has now bowed to the inevitable and cancelled the A3VE until 6-9 May 2021 (TBC)*.

Despite the possibility of squeezing into the motorsport calendar in October this year and clearing a week in the Blackwood Caravan Park schedule, we came across the stumbling block of DELWP/Parks Victoria scheduled track closures until November (a time of heat and bushfire danger). Also, the fact that farmers will be preparing paddocks for crops made the scheduling this year unworkable.

The positive vibe this event has created drove us all to seek the best outcome, and we realised we wouldn't be able to do the event justice in these circumstances.

We are hoping that all entrants will carry over their entry and accommodation bookings into 2021.

On a positive note, the new date gives us time to polish the course and provide the best possible riding experience on an old enduro bike. The Blackwood township regrets the cancellation, but we are secure in the knowledge that we will come back bigger and better.

Please look out for each other and stay safe in these challenging times.

The VERi Committee.

* Please note: This date was originally announced as 20-23 May, then 13-16 May 2021, but has been changed to avoid clash with 2021 A4DE. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Wandong and COVID-19
23 March 2020

To all our members and guests

We have been following the state and federal government announcements closely over the last few weeks and been trying to fit our events into their guidelines. In light of the most recent announcements and the shutdown on non essential activity in Victoria, we believe it would be irresponsible to proceed with our Wandong event this weekend.

While we can accommodate the social isolation rules, it would not be a good idea to proceed when other Australians are doing their part to slow the spread of the virus.

The closure of State borders is another factor we have to consider.

We will be giving out full refunds for those that have already entered. If you have already paid please send an email with your bank details to our treasurer
Please remember she is a volunteer and will get to these when she can.

Stay tuned for announcements about other VERi events.

Unanimously disappointed
