Geraldton Junior and Senior Motocross Club
The motocross scene in Geraldton has thrived since the early 1930s. During that era, the Geraldton Scramble Club was active, with its members riding through the streets of Geraldton and maintaining a track in Utakarra. In the 1960s, the formation of the Geraldton Senior Motocross Club took place, and it was exclusively for senior riders.
In the early 1970s, a group of parents came together to establish the Geraldton Minibike Club, catering to junior riders. They initially utilized a track in Utakarra and later expanded to another location on Railway Parade. Subsequently, it was renamed the Geraldton Junior Motocross Club. In the early 1980s, the two clubs merged, forming the Geraldton Junior & Senior Motocross Club, which began hosting races at Wells Park.
Over the years, the club has maintained consistent growth, building a robust membership and spectator base. It has produced talented junior and senior riders who have achieved state-level championship status. The club has also adeptly navigated the evolving challenges of the sport.
After relocating their track several times, the club finally settled in an ideal location behind the Meru Landfill site. Over many years, they diligently developed both the track and its facilities, establishing themselves as one of the best-equipped clubs in Western Australia. In 2019, they received recognition as one of the top 5 clubs in the state.
