Lo­cals in ac­tion at QLD state ti­tles

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

THE Whit­sun­day re­gion was well rep­re­sented at the Queens­land Su­per­moto Ti­tles as many lo­cal stars of the Whit­sun­day Moto Sports Club (WMSC) hit their home track over the weekend.

Ge­or­gia Mur­ray, who was com­pet­ing against the men in the S2 and S3 class, per­formed ex­tremely well to fin­ish fourth over­all in the S3 class.

She shaved three sec­onds off her per­sonal best lap times and is look­ing for­ward to get­ting back on the track for the Aus­tralian Su­per­moto Ti­tles in June.

Lo­cal lads Brodie Oats and Har­ri­son Maxwell both crossed the fin­ished line to take out sec­ond place in their re­spec­tive classes, while Mungo McMur­trie fin­ished fifth over­all in the vet­er­ans class.

Proser­pine’s Sam Cross­ley was also thrilled to fin­ish third over­all in the S3 class on his home turf.

Whit­sun­day Dirt Rider Kai Orth also got in on the ac­tion by help­ing mo­tor­cross stars Michael Kirk­ness and Ge­or­gia Mur­ray in the pits.

He said the qual­ity of rac­ing was phenom­e­nal and was hop­ing to have a crack at com­pet­ing in a su­per­moto event in the fu­ture.

WMSC pres­i­dent Andrew Auld thanked all vol­un­teers, of­fi­cials and club mem­bers for mak­ing the Queens­land Su­per­moto Ti­tles such a great suc­cess.

“Every­where I looked the spec­ta­tors had smiles on their faces as they watched the races, there were no ma­jor in­juries and the weather held off so it couldn’t have gone any bet- ter,” he said. “The top three rid­ers in the ju­niors were one bike length apart all weekend and it’s great to see that level of com­mit­ment to rac­ing in the ju­nior class.”

Auld said plans were al­ready un­der­way for the Aus­tralian Su­per­moto Ti­tles in June and promised the event would be “big­ger and bet­ter than last year”.

The WMSC will be host­ing round 1 of their first club race meet for 2014 at the Whit­sun­day Race­way on Sun­day, April 27.
