It was a mas­sive week­end of motocross as Broome Motocross Club hosted the sev­enth and fi­nal round of the North West Cham­pi­onships last Satur­day and Sun­day.

Hed­land’s Taiha Browne took out the 90cc ju­nior quads com­pe­ti­tion, in the un­der-16s 200cc-250cc ju­nior quads Dylan Case was vic­to­ri­ous, while the se­nior quads open event was won by Shaun Barry.

Broome’s Troy Gib­son claimed the se­nior quads over 35s com­pe­ti­tion and there was also a lo­cal vic­tory in the 50cc auto com­pe­ti­tion for 7-9s, with Scar­lett Griffin reg­is­ter­ing a win against Kar­ratha’s Lach­lan Poul­son and New­man’s Jhett Don­ald.

Kar­ratha’s Kai Pratt took out the 7-9s 65cc ride and in the 10-12s bracket, Lin­coln Heil, of Broome, led the way fol­lowed by Hed­land’s Ethan Se­mark and New­man’s Jeremy Samwell.

The 16s semi-pro two wheels com­pe­ti­tion was taken out by crowd favourite Jono Squires, of Hed­land, ahead of sec­ond placeget­ter Ryan Odiam, of Kar­ratha.

Dar­ren Hansen, of Tom Price, won the se­nior two wheel vet­er­ans cat­e­gory ahead of Reuben Bufton and David Griffin.

In the se­nior two wheel ladies com­pe­ti­tion, Casey Ar­row­smith claimed vic­tory over Re­becca McGre­gor and El­lie Wallis.

In over­all end of year points, Tom Price’s Ja­son Meagher took out the se­nior fea­ture race, fol­lowed by Robbie White­man and Ryan Odiam.

While Kar­ratha’s Shaun Barry claimed the end-of-year points vic­tory in the fea­tured quads event, he was pur­sued by Anthony Case and Bill Case.
