MOTORSPORT: Kirra-Lee Baxter, Kam Watson, Zac Perry and Tyson Baxter were the best-performed riders in last weekend's penultimate round of the Central Queensland MotorX Series in perfect weather conditions.

Kirra-Lee took out second place in the Ladies' category while her brother Tyson was fourth in Senior Open behind Ryan Eden, Jake Valinoti and Peter Stapleton.

Tyson said he will now turn his attention to round nine of the Pirelli MX Nationals on August 5 at the Benaraby Motorsport Complex.

"Overall to get fourth was a good result and I thought the track was good," he said.

"It's a good run before the nationals in August."

But before the August 5 event will be the final round of the CQMX Series in Yeppoon and Tyson said he's keen to improve.

"Both the Benaraby and Yeppoon tracks are hard-packed tracks which means, in my opinion, that this will create close racing," he said.

"I'll be looking for a top-five finish in Yeppoon."

Tyson always gives advice - and vice-versa - to younger sister Kirra-Lee at the track.

"We're always talking about how we went in between races and always give each other feedback as well," he said.

It was a family duel between Terry Scarborough and his son Jamie in the Clubman Lites.

Terry got the higher placing in which he finished 10 points ahead of his son.

The final round of the CQMX is June 30-July 1 in Yeppoon.
