1st Race meeting – Presidents Cup Shakedown!

 

Sunday morning at the earlier start time of 11am saw the first outing of the season for a number of solo and sidecar riders. It was a solid day of racing with some new faces getting ready for the season ahead.

 

Nine peewee riders had a fun day of riding. Callum, Zac B, Mitchell, Locky, Tristan, Jett, Chad, Axle and Zac W all got plenty of laps in during the early meeting. In the 125cc, Mitchell was in fine form in all four of his races with Breea racing well and being ready to pounce if Mitchell was to make a mistake. Xander only completed one race due to bike problems but looked in good nick in his race. One of the new faces to the 125cc division is Hayley, who took the opportunity to do some laps on her own and she was looking comfortable on the bike.

The 125cc riders continued on from last season when they put on some superb racing. The Killeen brothers, Declan and Luke, were both impressive along with Brad Gordon who’s set for a busy season, riding on both a 125cc and a 250cc machine. Cuan Shirley was very much on the pace and picked up a win in his last ride. Jack Mcdiarmid and Christopher Bogdan also picked up wins in a day of very even racing for the 125cc riders. Ryan Phillipson and Jayden King showed that they’re ready for the new season with good displays against their more experienced counterparts.

 

Kobee Ziedas is stepping up from the 250cc class to the 500cc class and he looked like he’s set for a good season on the more powerful bike. Ziedas’ older brother Jarryd could only finish one race before he unfortunately blew up his motor. He’ll hope to have his bikes ready for the Chum Taylor cup on the 15th. Carley Gittus will be one to watch this season after an immaculate afternoon display. She made the reigning state champion Daniel Winchester work very hard for a race win in their first race of the day. Winchester was sharp and will be favoured to have a great season in pursuit of a second consecutive 500cc senior solo state championship. His brother Drew got some laps in and is improving with every lap he rides. Another rider on form was Kale Ballantyne who looked quick in all four of his races.

 

Junior sidecar duo Scott Topping and Morgan Cornwell were racing with two new junior sidecar teams. Jack and Adam Fewster, and Jake Harvey and his passenger. Topping and Cornwell reminded everyone how good they are but they came under pressure from the new teams. The Fewster’s managed to pick up a win and Harvey was not far behind both of the other sidecars in each race. Two of the senior sidecars got an early season run with competitive races against each other. The team of Jeff Bishop and , Ryan Lancaster along with the pairing of Horrie Payne and Chromie Hollywood, gave us a taste of what’s to come in the popular sidecar division this season.
