JOHNSTON AND MITCHELL/CORNWALL GET THE JOB DONE.

In a rare day time meeting that had been postponed from its original March date, because of Covid19, “Comeback King” Steve Johnston dominated solo riding at the final meeting of the season at Pinjar Park.

He won his four qualifying heats before winning the Final in great style from Matt Marson and Kobee Ziedas. Bryan Miller fell and was unable to complete the journey.

There was plenty of action on the Solo programme with Jarryd Ziedas taking a nasty tumble while leading his first heat. Jarryd damaged a thumb and was unable to continue racing.

While Johnston was busy winning his four heats other wins went to Matt Marson (3) and Jack Hunter-Mertens (1).

Senior Sidecar racing saw some wonderful battles before former Australian and Western Australian Champion Russell Mitchell with his passenger Morgan Cornwall emerged as victors in the Final.

 

They had an absorbing race with Reece Liptrott/Jesse Thomas with current Australian Junior Champion Jack Fewster and his passenger Steve McQueen finishing third. Rock Bryan/David Mercer finished fourth.

An outstanding set of qualifying races saw Jack Fewster/Steve McQueen set to go through to the Final undefeated. Unfortunately, McQueen took a tumble from the side of their machine and while Fewster crossed the line first, the team was disqualified. While Fewster/McQueen’s three wins were very impressive they were equaled on the afternoon by Reece Liptrott/Jesse Thomas who also won three. The other two heats went to Mitchell/Cornwall and Bryan/Mercer.

250cc racing saw limited numbers racing with Jack McDiarmid winning his five rides including the final over Lincoln Worroll. Worroll is heading to 500cc ranks next season.

125cc’s had good numbers with Mitchell McDiarmid the form rider on the day. He won the Final with the much improved Xander Smith in second ahead of Phoenix Elliott. McDiarmid didn’t have it all his own way though. Other heat winners on the day included Trevar Dossett (2), Colby Mason, Regan Dossett, Lincoln Metcalf and Alex Prall.

Adam Fewster/Thomas Grigson were the only Junior sidecars to make an appearance. As fourteen-year old’s they were able to run on the big track and their best four laps was an unofficial 72.75 secs.

Flat trackers were also on the programme. Brandon Coombe winning four heats and the Final. Coombe’s best opposition came from Mick Godbold, Raymond Coleman and Luke Manera.

Three 50cc PeeWee’s made the most of the opportunities provided with Ollie Corbett debuting alongside the more experienced Pace Sturmfels and Mason Robins.

110’s had some great scraps with Phoenix Elliott proving the rider to beat. Pace Sturmfels, Coby Robson and Mason Robins also gave a great account of themselves here.
