The Dirt High Promotions two day Equiprent Tumbulgum Natural Terrain MX and Speedway extravaganza has been run and won for 2012.

This is the ninth running of the Motorcycling West Australia affiliated event, and each year there are more and more competitors and spectators who come along to what is essentially a carnival atmosphere.

This year the track has been moved to a different paddock and it certainly lived up to its promise that it would test all competitors.

Every year there is a completely different track specially constructed for the two day event, and without any doubt whatsoever it was an unmitigated success. There were big crowds in attendance over the two days and the crowd even carried over from the juniors to the Speedway on Saturday night.

On Saturday, during the day it was the juniors, and they didn't disappoint with some terrific racing from every age group.

Jayden Rykers from the Honda Australia Junior Development Team was a sight to behold mastering what was a challenging track to take out the junior title for 2012 from Jake Fewster on his Jurien Tyre & Auto Kawasaki and Jack Gerrard ridig his Southern Cross Tyres Yamaha.

The night was perfect for racing with a good sized field in the speedway machines whilst the quads and stock bikes put on some excellent racing.

Promoter Willie Thomson also brought some Go-Karts along for the night as a demonstration.

The event drew a large crowd of spectators, including the West's very own Ken Brown, for the evening's entertainment.

In the solos it was Daniel Winchester who took the honors from Ethan Ballantyne and Tim Boujos. Glenn O'Brien along with Aaron Maynard held sway in the sidecars from John Low and Dan Birch. Craig Rando took out the Quads and Robbie Clark won the stock bikes. Sheldon Gill won the junior solos.

Sunday was even better than Saturday with clear blue skies, and there was no-one more focused than the 2011 winner Luke Davis from the Goldfields Club on the Highside Designs Yamaha, who made his intentions clear during practice.

He took the first two races in convincing style, and looked to be well on his way to a third straight win when he inexplicably crashed whilst unchallenged at the front of the field, he quickly remounted and came home in fourth place.

He was back to his best form for the final race and took it out to win back to back Tumbulgum titles.

"The track was good, we all knew it would get rough as the day went on," said Davis "congrats to everyone who put so much into it in the past week or so to get it ready, hats off to them they have done a great job to get it all ready."

"The racing was awesome quite a few fast guys out there and it was good to see young Scott Kramer coming through on the 250. " continued Davis

The incident I had in the third race knocked me around a little bit, but I got back up as quick as I could and that helped me get some good points." He added.

Winning back to back titles here is great and hopefully I can capitalize on this good start this year. It is a great feeling to win first time out and I hope I can carry that form to Coastal next weekend, and by then I hope to have the bike a bit more set-up than it was today." Concluded Davis
