Noy a class apart on the track

GLADSTONE District Dirtriders Club members gave the Jono Porter Memorial Drive track a real workout on Sunday.

About 70 competitors took part in club day number five, and gave it everything.

Although numbers were a little down, the competition in some of the classes was just as hectic.

Luke Noy had a big day out, finishing on top in both senior classes but he encountered some stiff opposition from Matt Kennedy in the Open class.

Kennedy has been concentrating on his BMX riding but had a free weekend and decided to give the motorbike a run.

Noy got the better of Kennedy in all three races but the finishes were close.

In the Junior Lites Daniel Boyce also took three wins from Josh Noy.

Both riders showed plenty of improvement and obviously liking the new soft track surface.

In the Clubman Lites, Tyler Walker and Sam Wenham shared the race wins in close racing but Walker took the most important flag – the last – to finish first.

Rockhampton boys Locklan Crouch and Shane Clarke were too good for the locals in the 65cc race.

They finished ahead of Cody Guymer. Jacqui Craig won the Ladies class, with Mel Ritter finishing second.

The Masters class was its usual battle to the finish flag, with Ross Spencer, Terry Scarborough and Colin Bruckner taking the placings.

Brandon Brown was back to his best in the Mini Lites, taking three convincing race wins.

The 50cc Auto class was won by Nathan Herbert, with Savannah Warren second and Jayden Stronoch third.
