This Sunday July 26th round four of the Make Smoking History WAMX Senior State Championships heads to Beverley for the very first time.  After the cancellation last month of round 3, riders are super keen to get their seasons back on track, and the round is also the kick-start of the Women’s State Championships.

There have been two interesting rounds as far as the points chase is concerned, on the demanding sand tracks before finally heading to the hard packed surface of host club, the Beverley Districts Motorcycle Club located on the fringe of the WA wheat belt some 135 kilometres South East of Perth.

In the Veterans class, Brendan Parnham leads the championship standings from Trevor Unstead and Nick Stone, with Tim Dunstan looking strong in fourth with Rex Brown in fifth.
