Thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts will descend on Tamworth for the first National Thunder Motorcycle Rally in October | The daily leader of the North


Tamworth will host thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts when the first National Thunder Motorcycle Rally roars through the area later this year. After COVID-19 ended plans for the event last year, it was finally given the green light to continue thanks to support from the NSW Government’s Regional Events Acceleration Fund. Event organizer Barry Harley said the funding would ensure the inaugural event would be a great success for Tamworth. “This unique event has the potential to inject over $1 million into the local economy in one weekend and the Australian Equine and Livestock Events Center (AELEC) is the perfect venue to provide all the amenities and l opportunity for future growth,” Harley said.

Deputy Premier and Regional NSW Minister Paul Toole said a number of organized rides will help spread the economic benefits of the event across the region. “Supporting important events like this in the NSW region is what gets our economy going and getting it back on track, and I look forward to seeing the benefits this event will bring to communities not just in Tamworth but across regions,” says Toole. Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson said it was hoped the rally would become the premier national motorcycling event on the calendar and a major asset to the Tamworth area. “The national event is expected to attract around 1,500 motorbikes to Tamworth, but it’s not all about the bikes, we’ll also have over 24 hours of live music, shopping venues, horse shows and vintage cars and bikes on display. to make it a great day out for the family,” Mr. Anderson said. The National Thunder Motorcycle Rally will be held over the long weekend, September 30 through October 3. Our reporters work hard to provide local, up-to-date news to the community.
