Coastal Park, Henderson, south of Perth is one of WA’s most historic and prestigious clubs, with a track that overlooks the beautiful ocean, and a track that offers up plenty to the riders and it lived up to its gnarly and unforgiving reputation.

The Coastal Motorcycle Club hosted the penultimate Make Smoking History WAMX Senior State Championships on Sunday, and the points chase continues with now one round remaining.  Some titles are seemingly secured, whilst others will continue the battle down to the wire.

Quad Championships

Quad star Chris Bosnakis capped off a brilliant season which has had the Yamaha mounted rider adding to the trophy cabinet with a fifth in the Finke Desert race, the 2015 Australian ATV  Pro Championship in August and now has secured back to back WA State titles.

Bosnakis took the top step of the podium with a clean sweep of the three motos with the battle for the remaining podium steps between Tyron Robertson who took second and Shaun Woodhead in third.  Josh McKay was in fighting form in the opening moto before mechanical failure destroyed his day in the last corner on the last lap of the first moto.  Ashley Mills, Daniel Soltoggio, Michael Murphy and South Australian racer Taylor Goldfinch battled for positions just outside of the top three for the day.

MX2 series leader and defending champion Jayden Rykers was absent from this round for racing commitments in Europe.  This opened the door for Jake Fewster to step in and take up the challenge, and on cue he did exactly that.  His round win was by virtue of his perfect scorecard (1-1-1).  Whilst the results may not show it, Fewster had to work hard to secure the round win from hard charging Dylan Heard (2-2-2) who took second place and was in top form.  John Darroch secured the remaining step for third (3-3-4) from Jack Taylor and Jake Pratley.  Jess Moore battled in the tough conditions to get some race time under her belt back home in WA, and Wade Shepherd who picked a race lead after a holeshot, as did Daniel Guy in a welcome return to racing.  Another rider returning to competition was Shaun Cornick, the Suzuki mounted rider picking up 8th for the day.  Heard’s consistent results now have him as the series leader heading into the last round 30 points ahead of Rykers, and Jake Fewster now sits in fifth in the title chase.
