With a little rain through the week and some very light drizzle on the day Sunday saw slightly damper track conditions greet our 25 Hornsby riders that attended Round 3 of Series 2 as they endured a whopping 11 events for the day to get them ready for the State Titles coming up next weekend.
Thanks to the abundance of helpers, with all hands on deck, we completed the following events before lunch and still managed to do 2 rounds of mini cross in the afternoon; bending, ring bending, orange, looping, ring return, slow, accelerate and brake, acceler8, footing clover and non footing clover.
Harper was our only nipper this week and enjoyed joining in with the big kids. Some of our riders new to 50cc Auto enjoyed the competitive level and were quoted as saying it was the "best day ever!"
With such a large amount of events to get through some classes were finished ahead of others which left for some great entertainment as riders were able to sit and watch other classes battling it out on event area 1 for some crucial championship points.
After lunch saw the bikes hit the track for the afternoon minicross session and it didn’t take long for any moisture that was left in the ground to dry up as riders blasted their way around the track. There were plenty of riders making the most of the conditions while other riders were caught out in the slippery sandy sections. The competition was fierce but the sportsmanship was evident and the riders enjoyed the company of their peers on and off the track.
The final points for this round and the following round will be withheld from publishing and winners of the series will be announced at the presentation day held at Louee next month.
Podium winners this week are:
Nippers - Harper
50cc Beau #798
65cc Ben #580
