Bai­ley Per­rin The track was pretty rough. It got pretty gnarly at the end of the day.

AF­TER a tough round of rac­ing last week­end, Bai­ley Per­rin has his eyes fo­cused on bounc­ing back at Bingera Weir.

To­mor­row will be the se­cond round of the Rum City Mo­tocross se­ries, with Per­rin the leader of the mini lites af­ter round one.

Last week­end he fin­ished eighth in the first round of the Sunny State se­ries in Her­vey Bay and was hop­ing for a bet­ter re­sult in his class.

“The track was pretty rough. It got pretty gnarly at the end of the day,” he said.

“It was a pretty dif­fi­cult week­end at Her­vey Bay. Was good train­ing for this week­end.”

Head­ing into to­mor­row’s rac­ing, Per­rin will also re­sume his bat­tle with Lance Cameron in the ju­nior lites.

Cur­rently he is se­cond be­hind Cameron and ad­mits he will have his work cut out to beat him.

“(I go) Han­dle­bars (to) han­dle­bars with Lance. He’s a very fast rider and it’s pretty good to be up there rac­ing with him,” Per­rin said.

“It’s good to watch him ride and I get some points (about) how he rides.

“It’s def­i­nitely a chal­lenge to be up there with him.”

Per­rin said he needed to get his starts right to main­tain his po­si­tion at the top of the stand­ings.

“I mostly like the start. It’s al­ways fun try­ing to get to the cor­ner first,” he said.

“Just rac­ing against other peo­ple is fun and it is a chal­lenge to just get bet­ter and bet­ter.”

Pub­lic­ity of­fi­cer at the Rum City Mo­tocross Club Jonathon Black­ley said num­bers were up from the last round and they hoped to host more races this week­end.

There will also be can­teen fa­cil­i­ties avail­able, with spectators wel­come as well.
