Airoh Series Co-Ordinator Jason Watson Wraps up the Third Round
"More than 400 motorcycles converged on Chinchilla for round three of the Airoh MX series in what was a very happy and friendly weekend of close racing in junior and senior classes.
On Saturday’s junior day, the older age groups really impressed me with some top riding and passes on a magnificently prepped and rutted Chinchilla track.
The smaller juniors also impressed, fitting their small wheels through the large-bike-sized ruts, they excelled on the day.
The guys did an excellent job track-prepping until 10pm on Saturday night.
A rutted Sunday track meant that a lot of riders learned how to lift their legs after two previous rounds in the sand.
In the Pro Open we had close racing at the beginning of each moto, but Mitch Evans put it all together, winning three races out of three in the 450 Open class.
In the Pro Lites there was an impressive ride by Yamaha's Richie Evans who came down on the first lap of Moto 1, putting him back to last.
He fought his way back into the good points, and then tied the day to take the overall after winning the final two motos.
In the Clubman races, there were also big grids and a lot of strong riders coming up through the ranks, so Qld's motocross prospects are very strong.
Congratulations to the Chinchilla club on a very strong attendance in workers on the Saturday and the Sunday, and thank you to everyone who helped us to get the track prepped and ready for racing on the Saturday.
We now look forward to Warwick in April."
