NSW’s wicked track

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY Mo­to­sports Club mem­bers com­peted in the 2015 Graham Boyd Mo­tor­cy­cles Aus­tralian Su­per­moto Ti­tles on a pur­pose built track around the fore­shore of New­cas­tle.

The com­mon re­sponse from Whit­sun­day riders was “what a freak­ing wicked track”. Whit­sun­days’ Andy McLeish, the reign­ing num­ber two in Aus­tralia, bat­tled it out against two top Bri­tish riders only to take home the plate num­ber two once more.

McLeish also qual­i­fied for the Dash for Cash race, which was for the top 12 solo riders, where he an­ni­hi­lated his com­peti­tors and took home the prize money.

Fe­male rider Ge­or­gia Mur­ray took out Men’s S5 Club­man and placed 3rd in the S10 women’s un­lim­ited class. Steve Dar­manin placed ninth in the S2 class and fourth in the S3 250cc class; he also qual­i­fied for the Dash for Cash and took out fifth place rid­ing the only 250cc in a field of 450cc bikes. Young­ster Brett McLeish placed sev­enth in the S3 Class. Aaron Barr had an awe­some week­end plac­ing 17th in the S2 Pre­mium class in a mas­sive field of elite riders, knock­ing time off ev­ery race. Marty Tay­lor, Mungo McMur­trie, Craig McDer­mott and An­drew Auld all had a ball rac­ing the wicked street cir­cuit.
