Riders race into Bay Moto-X Series

YOU could say that the dirt was really flying at Dundowran Park. No one was offended though – this was a motocross meeting.

Ninety riders from throughout south-east Queensland raced into action to contest round seven of the annual eight-round Hervey Bay Moto-X Club Series.

Members of the host club certainly didn't let the visitors have it all their own way on the rain sodden track.

It may have been a dirty day out, but three young Maryborough-based riders enjoyed making it a clean sweep in the under-eight division.

Jeremy Sauer, Tristan Knight and Kaitlin Borg finished first, second and third respectively.

Riley Estcourt and Lance Cameron, both from Hervey Bay, finished second and third in the 65cc class behind regular Bundy visitor Jack Larter.

Another three Bay riders Riley Estcourt, Tyler Cittadella and Paul Kearney, were placed in the two 85cc Classes

Kyle Chay of Maryborough came second in the competitive Junior Lites Class while Quinn Turner – Pavey, Corey Abood, Brenton Fry and Adam Priestly were placegetters in the four senior classes contested.

Local riders also made their presence felt in the veterans ranks with Mark Camilleri, Darryl Gardner and Peter Nichols placegetters in the over-40 class.

Hervey Bay Moto-X Club official Phil Gray said the meeting had been great.

“The spectators got to see plenty of quality racing and the riders had a ball on a wet track,” Gray said.

“The day was also accident free – that was great result too.”

The final round of the series is on December 12.
