motorsportzone 2016 series
250 International
A field of 4 250 twins with Russell Jamieson setting some blistering lap times, even going close to the lap record. Taylor Bertram is now finding good consistency in the F1 Honda RS250. Was great to see Brian Wild return for his first event in 2016.
1st: Russell Jamieson (ANDERSON / DEA)
2nd: Taylor Bertram (F1 / HONDA)
3rd: Michael Nicholas (STOCKMAN / YAMAHA)

250 National
The Gas Gas trio of Weier and the Crisp brothers showed the way all weekend. Every race was virtually a drag race to the line every time. All 3 went very close to the lap record during the weekend. Weier in heat 5 had an incident in turn 2. Good to see he is ok, cant say the same for his Superkart however. The next round will be interesting with Dan Lewis returning with his revamped Anderson YZ Yamaha ready to challenge trio at Lakeside Park September 10 - 11.
1st: Tim Weier (ANDERSON / GAS GAS)
2nd: Lachlan Crisp (STOCKMAN / GAS GAS)
3rd: Gareth Crisp (ADE / GAS GAS)

125cc Gearbox
Where did Phil Silcocks reliability go? 3 DNF's in a single weekend has hurt his Motorsport Zone Superkart Series points lead. Lindsay Jamieson, Jon Bothamley and Sam McFerran wasted no time and swooped while Silcock was having an off weekend. At times, you could throw a blanket over the podium positions in each race.
1st: Sam McFerran (BRM /HONDA)
2nd: Lindsay Jamieson (STOCKMAN/ Honda)
3rd: Jon Bothamley (F1 / Pavesi)

85cc Gearbox
Just 2 entries for this event. Scott has changed his powerplant from a Honda to the Yamaha without a loss of speed. The normally very reliable Stewart Bell Gladiator / Yamaha failed to complete a race all weekend. The team worked furiously all weekend to try to rectify the problems without success.

1st: Scott Jamieson (Gladiator / Yamaha)
2nd: Stewart Bell (Gladiator / YAMAHA)

Rotax Light
With Bonaventura a no show at this event, Nuske and Gagie gathered as many points as they could in Bonaventura's absence. Slabbert was fast with his new EVO engine. Hamilton's engine expired in race 2 due to the big end of the conrod failing.
1st: Peter Nuske (Scorpion / Rotax)
2nd Richard Gagie (Experit / Rotax)
3rd: Quintin Slabbert (Arrow / Rotax)

The next round is at Lakeside Park September 10 - 11. Don't miss it.
