This track lived up to it’s gnarly reputation and some riders gotten bitten. Huge crowds of spectators came down and watched all the action unfold!
With most #1 Plates already secured, this did not stop any rider giving their all in the no holds barred racing action throughout the day.
In the Shannons Insurance MX1 Class Michael Mahon rode the wheels off his 450cc powered Yamaha to take the Overall Win (1, 1, 2) from Dean Porter who finished in second place (4, 2,1) after finishing 4th in the first moto due to a flat tyre. Charlie Creech rounded out the podium in 3rd (3, 3, 3).
For the Overall Championship -Dean Porter retains his #1 status for 2017, having won his 7th Senior State Title with Michael Mahon (#87) in 2nd and Chris Ruttico (#83) taking 3rd place. The remaining Top 10 Riders fought very hard and some placings are only separated by one or two points.
