Sunday 1st July was the final round of our Series 1 championship and the day was shaping up to be a beauty as we had fine weather forecast for the day and the track was still in great shape after the recent rain during the week.
With so many different round winners so far, today was all about consistency for those who were fighting out the final podium positions in the club championship.
We had 24 riders attend the day with great anticipation and they were eager to practise events for the upcoming Blacktown interclub, chase points for Series 1 and also have fun with their mates.
Who doesn't love a meat raffle? Today we also had a fabulous prize on offer which was a generous tray of snags, chops, steaks, roast & rissoles all up for grabs in a club raffle. This was the beginning of our fundraising effort to purchase our very own Bobcat for track maintenance.
With all the mornings jobs done including buying tickets for the meat raffle, riders were briefed and headed out into 4 groups competing in events with quite a level playing field in all classes. Events held in the morning included Orange, Bending, Ring Return, Figure 8, Accelerate & Brake and Non Footing Clover.
Most riders placed throughout the day leaving the podium winners a mystery for the afternoon. The groups ran so smoothly there was time for siting laps before lunch.
The afternoon was left for some heart stopping mini cross. I don't think there were two heats alike. Winners changed each race and a great show was put on for the spectators.
The long awaited raffle was drawn at the end of the day and presentation was completed. Congratulations to the following winners
