Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Jakeb Wad­dell

Broome Mo­tocross Club had its high­est turnout of the year ear­lier this month as the fourth round saw 44 rac­ers hit the track.

The count­less spec­ta­tors were treated to some fan­tas­tic com­pe­ti­tion on May 14, with close fin­ishes and up­set vic­to­ries.

Scar­lett Grif­fin fin­ished first in the Pro 50cc, edg­ing out Liam Belling­ham and Tyler Gib­son, but was not fin­ished there.

She went on to take out the 65cc ages seven to nine round, beat­ing a com­pet­i­tive Reece Ly­deamore.

Joshua Schultz took out the 65cc ages nine to 12, with Bill Heil win­ning the 85cc of the same age bracket.

Rossi Johnson was vic­to­ri­ous over Zaid Cahill and Kaleb Quin­trell in the 85cc ages 12 to 16 and was the sole com­peti­tor in the Ju­nior Lites 125cc event.

The Ju­nior Lites 250cc saw James Heil beat out Alex Wil­liams, then go on to win the Fea­ture race over Taite Prime, Eric Con­nolly and Chris Din­uzzo. In the Pro­lites event, Jack Wil­cox beat a com­pet­i­tive field of rac­ers, in­clud­ing Sam Barclay, who fin­ished in sec­ond.

De­spite set­backs, Travis Ma­hony won the Open race over Tom O’Con­nell and Jack­son Smith, and it was David Grif­fin who took out the Vets event.

Hav­ing no fe­males to com­pete against, El­lie Wal­lis was given spe­cial per­mis­sion to com­pete in the muchan­tic­i­pated Club­man race, but fin­ished fourth out of the six com­peti­tors. Gareth Ja­cob­son won the race.
