With two hard packed tracks under the belt, round 3 of the Make Smoking History WAMX Junior State Championships heads to the deep sands of Coastal Park Henderson, which also marks the halfway point of the championships on Sunday July 3rd.

 

Coastal Park will also see the 50cc Nipper class return and it is hoped enough girls have entered the exciting race format for the 2016 series with a Junior Girls State Championship headed up by defending champ Tahlia O’Hare.

It is not a misprint, the top three in the 65’s have continued to be the top three in the 85’s with Myles Gilmore taking the series lead into this round from Liam Atkinson and Brock Flynn.  Flynn’s improvement this season has been superb and he could be on par for a victory at this round.  The big charges from the previous round were  Camball McMahon, Bailey Smith, Kaj Radcliffe and Jake Turner, yet the series lead could be under threat, as anything at Coastal Park can happen and the exciting competition will fire up that’s for sure.

The cream rises to the top and Mat Fabry was in winning form from the moment the gates dropped at Beverley.  As the series leader, Fabry is a certainty to back up the previous rounds performance.   Billy Middleton will be out to prove that wrong as he has really started to fire up with strong results as has Kai Stephen, Kurt Oinn and Riley Stephens.  Nick Williamson, Kyal Gillespie and Callum Moulton were solid finishers at Beverley and will be keen to replicate that heading into the mid-way point of the championship.  In this class there have been rides from Mitch Outram and Regan Duffy who have both had mixed results, and this could be an opportunity to turn that around.
