The early bird catches the worm they say! Last Sunday 37 eager riders arrived at the track bright and early to hang out with their mates and have fun. As a bonus, they also got to ride for their chance at a podium place for Round 2 and gain points towards the end of year championship. The breeze made for perfect weather, unfortunately the sand flies enjoyed it too so the mozzie spray was close at hand.
Lunch orders in, check. Rider sign on, check. Bike scrutineered, check. Bike fuelled, check. Riders briefing, checked. Just a normal routine for a ride morning before the events get underway.
The large numbers meant that each class had a healthy group of riders which made for great competition. Every event presented different place getters which made for an exciting day. Among the riders were some new families who were riding at our friendly club for the first time. We welcome all new families and riders and hope you enjoyed your first day.
Seven events were held on the day. These included; non footing clover, accelerate and brake, acceler8, ring return, bending, orange and mini cross. The morning events ran relatively smoothly apart from some healthy debates between officials regarding some of the new rule changes.
The afternoon brought plenty more action with riders keen to sample the freshly groomed track prepared by Aaron from AGM Earthworks. After some sighting laps the conditions were superb with a few damp sections out of turn 4 & 5 however it didn’t take long for the ruts to appear and riders were battling the tricky sand especially in corners 2 & 3.
We had some very competitive riding throughout the afternoon which was great to see and the results for the day are as follows:
50cc Auto - 1st Charlie #23
Miniwheels - 1st Jordan #751
65cc - 1st Lincoln #62
85cc - 1st Declan #91, and
Junior Big Wheels - 1st Dom #224
Well done to all riders who competed on the day and thanks to all the marshals and officials with a big thanks again going out to Jeff who was our Steward for the day AND also a big thanks to our Sponsors which are greatly appreciated and help us enjoy what we do.
