Round 1 Mallala and we took the sweep winning all 4 races.It was hard fought with Varley a close second and Ripperton third overall.A great weekend, Thanks to all our supporters, the people who make the races happen and to our fans. The interest we had in the pits and after the races was amazing. A special shout to the guys who drove 170km just to come and see us, top work! The bike again ran without fault all weekend and was feeling great on track. Here is a snippet of some racing action with Varley.
