Tickets to ride in the fifth Ellaspede Dust Hustle go on sale on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, at 6pm and the 140 rider spots are expected to sell out within an hour.

Tickets, which have sold out quickly in the past, are only available online here.

Rather than being held in Spring, the fun racing event will this year be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017, at the Mick Doohan Raceway, 61 Raubers Road, Northgate, Brisbane.

Ellaspede spokesman Hughan Seary says to get fans in the mood for the fifth Dust Hustle, they have released this video of their fourth Dust Hustle at Biddaddaba in April.

Hugh says the fifth Dust Hustle and the second one for this year will have the same racing categories as usual: Clutchless Scooters & Posties, Old Mates (pre 90), Risky Road Bikes and Enduro & MX.

“We’re partnering with the Food Truck Round Up again to bring 10+ gourmet food trucks to the event again, as well as some new sponsor displays that we haven’t seen at the event before,” he says.

“Lunchtime will feature some sponsor demos, as well as two full-gate-start pro dirt track races with some current and former champions.”

He says they are still confirming the start list.

Entry price is $2 per person or free for kids under 16.

To see what all the fun is about, check out this video of their 2016 Dust Hustle event featuring GP legend Garry McCoy and a host of wacky bikes and riders.

Motorcycles, scooters and sidecars featured included old dirt bikes to choppers and a showdown of modern scramblers from BMW and Ducati.

It was also a huge crowd-pleaser with plenty of on- and off-track action and entertainment for the 2000 spectators.
