250 International
With only 1 entry, Taylor Bertram should have been raking in the points with the good consistency he had at the last meeting. Unfortunately the F1 Honda RS250 was determined to self harm all weekend with 1 race finish for the weekend. It was just enough to get a small lead in the championship however.
1st: Taylor Bertram (F1 / HONDA)

250 National
The Gas Gas duo of the Crisp brothers showed they were ready for the onslaught from Dan Lewis returning with his revamped Anderson YZ Yamaha. But not all went to plan for Team AGL. Lachlan still enjoys a faultless run while Gareth had a small incident demolishing his nosecone in the process. Lewis won 2 out of the 5 races with a small electrical issue hampered his performance in race 4 and 5. The battle for 250 National supremacy continues November 12 - 13 at Queensland Raceway. Will also be the return of the third member of Team AGL, Adam Ferguson, with his new Gas Gas powerplant.
1st: Lachlan Crisp (STOCKMAN / GAS GAS)
2nd: Dan Lewis (Anderson/ Yamaha)
3rd: Gareth Crisp (ADE / GAS GAS)

125cc Gearbox
With Silcock absent from this event, Sam McFerran, Lindsay Jamieson and Jon Bothamley halled in the points. McFerran winning 5 from 5 raced but faced stiff competition from Lindsay Jamieson and Jon Bothamley. The Pavesi engine of Bothamley is showing signs it will be a serious contender for the championship in 2017.
1st: Sam McFerran (BRM /HONDA)
2nd:Jon Bothamley (F1 / Pavesi)
3rd: Lindsay Jamieson (STOCKMAN/ Honda)

85cc Gearbox
Again just 2 entries for this event. Scott Jamiesons Galdiator/ Yamaha was fast. The normally very reliable Stewart Bell Gladiator / Yamaha failed to complete a race all weekend again. The team worked all weekend at rectifying the problem without a result. We look forward to having a new competitor in this field at Queensland Raceway due to the sale of Cameron Hoswell's Gladiator/ Yamaha. Hoswell has a near new BRM KZ2 chassis being readied for a YZ85 engine that will debut very soon. This class of racing is proving to be very cost effective and we are seeing good growth in this class.
1st: Scott Jamieson (Gladiator / Yamaha)
2nd: Stewart Bell (Gladiator / YAMAHA)

Rotax Light
With Bonaventura showing up at this event, he wasted no time in showing his dominance. Nuske and Gagie gathered as many points as they could taking the other podium places. Grant McKay still has good speed but needs to fit a nosecone to run at the front which he is capable of in his Intrepid/ Rotax.
1st: Carmelo Bonaventura (Tonykart / Rotax)
2nd Peter Nuske (Scorpion / Rotax)
3rd: Michael Gagie (Experit / Rotax)

Rotax Heavy
Just 1 entry for this event. Was great to see Richard Murtagh return to Superkart racing. Race fitness was a bit of an issue in race but showed good speed after his absence from racing.
1st: Richard Murtagh (Praga / Rotax)

The next round is at Queensland Raceway November 12 - 13. Don't miss it.
