Do you want to get your business more closely aligned with the Gawler Motorcycle Club? Then check out the sponsorhip package booklet (under the sponsorhip tab on the home page) with the many options that the club offers.
The Gawler Motorcycle Club recognises that one size does not fit all and we have lots of different opportunities to offer potential sponsors. Because of this we categorize our sponsorship packages in three ways:
1. Club Sponsorship: Split by different tiers, this sponsorship is aimed at those who want to help the club tick
2. Event Sponsorship: This sponsorship helps us to run the events and provide our club members the best and safest events possible
3. Program Sponsorship: Each event we run requires an event program to be produced. This is picked up by all competitors from around the state and provides you with an opportunity to advertise your business and its services
The Gawler Motorcycle Club is about creating the stars of the future whilst supporting the current talented stars of the sport. This is achieved through the following:
Improved training and support for club volunteers and officials
Running of events, both on a State and National level
Maintenance and improvements to club property
Building a solid infrastructure to ensure our clubs continued survival and growth

Now we think we do some crazy moves on our beloved two wheel machines and then there are those of us who are even crazier on our three wheeled machines. However, have you ever had the muscle to manhandle a quad motorbike around some of the toughest enduro dessert races in the country? Imagine riding on the limit for two days at the Condo 750 or the Finke Desert Race and then seven days at the Australasian Safari on one of these powerful beasts. Fellow motorbike enthusiast and organic almond grower, John Maragozidis, has been able to tame such a beast and has enjoyed many successes.
John has raced several times and finished on the podium at the Finke Desert Race. He finished 3 on his Banshee, 2 on his Predator and 1 with his current quad, ‘Julia’. The race finishes haven’t all come easy. One year on his Banshee, he broke a sub-frame on day one and slowly haemorrhaged the engine on day two but nursed it back to the finish.
John has been an entrant in navigational events such as the Condo 750 and Australasian Safari for many years. Not only are you riding on the limit in these events, but you are contending with reading a route charted scroll. One small error can be a costly mistake of kilometres and time. In the final running of the Australasian Safari in 2014, John saw himself finish on the top of the podium. This certainly was not his first time on the top step either.
John also won a National Vets Motocross title on a Polaris Predator and also a second place National open Motocross finish riding a Banshee.
John is coming to the January General Meeting to share his experiences with us. He will be able to share the highs and the lows of racing a quad bike and where these adventures have taken him. John will also share with us his future competition aspirations. You won’t want to miss out on listening to this story!
