After the humidity and rain over the last few events no one was complaining today about the nice dry and cool weather for Series 1 Round 3. A record number of riders attended the day with 48 in total.
Xpresso Coffee ensured all the adults started the day with a caffeine hit and a smile and our Race Secretary, canteen coordinators and scrutineers got busy with their morning jobs ensuring everyone was signed on, fed and had their bikes cleared into the pits.
Today's events included Bending, Orange, Ring Return, Slow, Accelerate & Brake, Footed Clover and Mini cross.
Conditions weren't easy as there had been some rain the night before which meant the dirt was grippy compared to usual & created some problems for riders whom are used to sliding their way around the courses.
All classes besides the 50s had big numbers and it was nice to see some different winners shared across the events. This showed that riders were competitive and many new riders this year are showing great improvement with practise.
After a busy lunch there was a ‘Castrol kit’ raffled off for the day with rider #98 going home with a box full of goodies.
There were 2 motos planned for the afternoon which provided some very tight racing between all classes and that was kicked off with our 10 nippers tearing up the track for a 7 minute moto followed by the rest of the groups with 3 lap heats & 3 lap finals.
The larger groups had to work a little harder as riders had to do well in their heats to make it through to the finals.
While there was fun on the track, there was also fun off the track with riders taking the wait time for their race to connect socially with other riders.
