Rider perform well at state and national champs
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.
