A violent brawl involving one of Perth's most notorious bikie gangs at a drag race has left three men in hospital with bullet and stab wounds.

The clash erupted at the Kwinana Motorplex yesterday morning and is believed to involve members of the Finks outlaw motorcycle gang, which is establishing a chapter in WA.

WA Police spokeswoman Ros Weatherall said one man presented himself to Fremantle hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg and head injuries between midday and 1pm, while a second presented to the hospital with head injuries.

A third man presented to Royal Perth Hospital about the same time with multiple stab wounds. All three men underwent surgery overnight.

Detectives from the gang crime squad were last night trying to piece together the events that led up to the violent incident. It is understood police did not attend the brawl at the Motorplex.

The fight took place during the Harley Street Bike drag racing event, which pitted a range of enhanced motorcycles in a competitive drag racing contest.

None of the men are co-operating with authorities and it is not known whether the men who attacked the Finks members were linked to another bikie gang.

However, tensions have been high between members of the Finks and WA's biggest bikie gang, the Coffin Cheaters, following the defection of powerful bikie Troy Mercanti.


Three outlaw bikies injured in clash

THREE outlaw motorcycle gang members have undergone surgery after suffering serious injuries, including bullet and stab wounds, in a clash with a rival gang near Perth.

The three members of the Finks bikie gang presented themselves at hospitals around midday (3pm AEST) yesterday following the clash at a bike drag event at Kwinana just south of Perth.

The men, all in their 20s, underwent surgery overnight, two at Fremantle Hospital and one at Royal Perth Hospital.

Police said all three suffered head injuries, one also had a gunshot wound and another had multiple stab wounds.

It's believed the clash involved rival gang the WA-based Coffin Cheaters.

A feud between the gangs was sparked after the Cheaters in January 2008 expelled high-profile member Troy Mercanti, who then helped the Finks set up a WA chapter.


Mercanti is currently in jail for assault.

The three injured Finks members have refused to cooperate with police and no charges have yet been laid.
