Strong field rides in me­mo­rial race

Wanneroo Times - - Training & Education -

THIS year marks 35 years since Gor­don Row­land died at Clare­mont Speed­way and on February 4, he was hon­oured at Pin­jar Park with the an­nual Gor­don Row­land Me­mo­rial meet­ing for 125ccc ju­nior solo riders.

A strong field of riders came to­gether for the event, with Brad Gor­don adding his name to the win­ners’ shield.

Gor­don had just re­turned from the na­tional cham­pi­onships in NSW where he came sec­ond in the Best Pairs meet­ing with SA rider Jack Sadler.

Not far be­hind him was last year’s win­ner De­clan Killeen, with Chris Bog­dan round­ing out the podium in third.

The event also fea­tured the 500cc so­los with Jar­ryd Ziedas win­ning, unbeaten from younger brother Kobee Ziedas and Car­ley Git­tus.

In the ju­nior side­car di­vi­sion, Jack and Adam Few­ster also raced unbeaten to win from Scott Top­ping and Mor­gan Corn­well and Jake Harvey and Tyler Solomon, who pulled out af­ter one race be­cause of bike prob­lems.

And in the se­nior side­cars, Rocky Bryan and Matt Young were unbeaten ahead of Ja­son Roser and Jake Lee and Tony Shield and Ash Brown.

The next event at Pin­jar Park Speed­way is a Best Pairs meet­ing for se­niors and ju­niors on February 18.
