As was the case at Round 1, it was a similar tale in the Quad Championship who fielded another huge gate of competitors. Chris Bosnakis and Luke Gaisford (pictured above) picked up the battle again with Bosnakis securing the first two moto wins ahead of Gaisford.

With bike issues for both riders, who resorted to their practice bikes to finish the day, it was the survival of the fittest. Gaisford secured the round win by a mere point over Bosnakis with Shaun Woodhead third overall for the day. There were some great rides from Daniel Soltoggio, Luke Ovens, Josh McKay, Ashley Mills and Tyron Robertson yet no-one could top the battle between Bosnakis and Gaisford, the results now see Gaisford lead the championships from Bosnakis with Soltoggio third in the standings.
