Sunday 2nd July was the 4th & final round of our series 1 competition with a total of 23 riders attending to gain as many points as they could to finish off before we go into series 2.
Although it was also one of the coldest mornings we’ve had in a while the temperature set to heat up as there were still plenty of points on offer and a chance for riders to gain extra points toward the overall club championship.
As things were beginning to thaw out, the bikes were being srutineered, the bacon and eggs rolls were cooked, the mums and dads dosed up on warm coffee and the event areas were all set up and riders briefing was underway.
With all the formalities out of the way by approx 9.30am riders & marshals could make their way down to their allocated event area and racing could finally start. The event areas were in great condition which made for some really close racing. All riders and marshals were hard at work getting through the 7 events planned which included slow, orange, bending, ring bending, accelerate & brake, clover and non footing clover.
Harper & Danny flew the flag for the nippers this week and they were both able to team up with the 50 autos to get a taste of what real competition is really like. Both showed great potential and growth...watch out 50ccs!
Once again the near perfect conditions enabled riders to breeze through the roped events in the first part of the day allowing enough time to get 2 siting laps of the minicross track done before lunch.
After another great BBQ lunch and a quick re-fuel of the bikes riders made their way down to the minicross track. To start things off the nippers were the first to test the conditions of the shorter minicross track while the rest of the groups followed on. The track was holding up well with just a few minor ruts appearing and of course the usual boggy sections towards the back end of the track.
The racing was thoroughly entertaining throughout each class and well done to all riders especially for those that made the podium.
Results for this round are:
50cc Beau #798
65cc Ben #580
Mini Wheels Kye #04
85ccSW Sam #279
85cc BW Brad #25
A big thank you to the parents, marshals and officials for keeping the day running so smoothly. The next event on the calendar is the Baulkham Hills Regional on the 23rd July at Horsley Park.
