Top chance for veteran rider in the Natural Terrain class

MOTORSPORT: Jade Hansen remains in the frame to take out the Natural Terrain series after his second place in the Veteran's Masters category held on the Angus McClennan-owned farming property in Bororen.

He finished second and another podium placing in the third and final round will seal the deal.

"I was happy with second and finished behind Kirk Hutton from Brisbane and he's won a few Australian Championships," Hansen said.

"He's 45 and he's charging real hard."

Hansen said the natural terrain concept suits all riders.

"Vets is the biggest class and there were about 20 or more riders in it," he said.

"It's not for the super fit and it's a fantastic and fun concept and just to do something different is great."

"I had a great time and the track was the closest thing to riding on a golf course and the conditions were perfect, overcast and a bit of breeze and it was cooler than what we expected.

"Thank the farmers who allowed us to use their property and it was muchly appreciated and they also came to watch it...and the kids riding. They got a lot out of it."

The final round of the Natural Terrain will be back at the Gladstone District Dirtriders Club Inc. Benaraby Raceway track on April 15.
