Jono Porter remembered

TWO days of dust, sun, heat and engines revving, and still dirt riders from across the state were smiling at the Jono Porter Memorial.

When people weren’t racing they were remembering Porter –watching him race, meeting him and his ability on the bike.

On Saturday night riders and spectators came to a standstill in front of the projector watching footage of a young Porter and videos of him with the Crusty Demons.

“Everyone had such a great weekend. It is such a special event,” official Julie Maeyke said.

“Amongst all the riding, people remember why we are here and what we are racing for.”

Among the crowd, which eclipsed previous years, were some of Porter’s friends from down south who had never attended the event before.

“It was great to see all these guys who used to race with Jono. They were really impressed with how we remember him,” Maeyke said.

“We even got chatting about things that we can do at next year’s event to make it bigger and better. In particular the 10 year anniversary in 2014.”

The standard of the racing over the weekend was fantastic, particularly in the Senior classes.

Gladstone local, and Honda Australia rider, Jacob Wright dominated the Senior Lites and Senior Open.
