Rac­ers roar at the North West champs

Pilbara News - - Sport - Re­becca Par­ish

More than 100 rid­ers from around the Pil­bara de­scended on New­man Mo­tor­cy­cle Club for round 4 of the North West Cham­pi­onships last month.

North West Mo­tor­cy­cle As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Kim Meagher said the event went well, adding he was pleased to re­port there had been no in­juries or ac­ci­dents dur­ing the week­end event.

“It was a very wet Satur­day with lots of mud, but I think it was some­thing dif­fer­ent for the Pil­bara peo­ple not used to rac­ing in those con­di­tions,” he said.

“New­man was slightly down on num­bers from the pre­vi­ous rounds, but I think that’s pri­mar­ily be­cause it’s only a week out from the school holidays.” Mr Meagher said some star per­form­ers at the event in­cluded Broome’s Wylie Scott, who he said had a per­fect week­end and won ev­ery race in his 125 ju­nior lites class as well as Ethan Bur­maz, who is sit­ting in top place in the se­nior two-wheel division af­ter win­ning first place in both his classes.

Tom Price rider Ross Oreo took out the se­nior open quad class ti­tle at the week­end, and cur­rently sits sec­ond in the stand­ings, while Kar­ratha rider Haiden Hills scooped the 85cc un­der-12s division from New­man rid­ers Rory Woodall and Jeremy Samwell, who came sec­ond and third re­spec­tively.

The next round of the cham­pi­onships will be held in Tom Price on July 23 and 24.

Mr Meagher said it wasn’t too late for new rid­ers to join the se­ries and have a bit of fun.
