Rider per­form well at state and na­tional champs

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Dirt Rid­ers club mem­ber Hunter Pen­hal­lurick trav­elled to Bar­leigh Ranch north of New­cas­tle to com­pete in the Aus­tralian Ju­nior Long Track Cham­pi­onships. With two days of rac­ing and a very com­pet­i­tive field of rid­ers from across the coun­try, Hunter placed third in the ju­nior 65cc class when he com­peted last fort­night.

Last weekend Hunter and other club mem­bers in­clud­ing Andy McLiesh and Ge­or­gia Mur­ray also com­peted in the Queens­land Se­nior and Ju­nior Dirt Track Ti­tles at Mick Doohan Race­way in Bris­bane.

Hunter did ex­cep­tion­ally well to fin­ish first in the ju­nior 65cc class.

This is a great achieve­ment as he also won the Queens­land Long Track Ti­tles ear­lier this year.

Adding to an al­ready suc­cess­ful year, Andy McLiesh came third in both the Pro Open and Pro 450 classes in a very com­pet­i­tive class of 21 rid­ers.

Ge­or­gia had an out­stand­ing weekend of rac­ing but did not place in ei­ther of her events.

Whit­sun­day Dirt Rid­ers are hold­ing their next club day on Satur­day, Novem­ber 9.

Gates open from 8.30am and it is a great op­por­tu­nity for spec­ta­tors to get in on all the ac­tion.
