Dean Porter has taken all before him winning both the Pro Open and Pro Lites classes at the opening round of the 2012 Smarter than Smoking Motocross Championships at Coastal Park Henderson on Sunday the 22nd of April.

Record numbers of riders filled the grids in all classes across solo's and Quads. The pits were bursting at the seems while the club parking had spilled across to the international Kart way by 10am.

Twenty four degree beautiful weather, Track groomed immaculately, great conditions for racing for a bumper start to the Motocross season.

Eight classes of racing over 3 moto's entertained the crowds for over seven hours with some fierce and furious racing that enthralled everyone there.

The Pro Open Class was missing its 2011 #1 rider Michael Addison due to work commitments but the grid had a star studded field none the less.

Race one was lead out the blocks by long time racer Paul Humberston leading a charging Dean Porter, who was a man on a mission to complete the Pro lite/Pro Open double.

Porter charged up the bridge for a brilliant pass on Humberston with young Anthony Hicks also closing the gap on the leaders, Hicks took the pass jumping side by side over Autotarader and held 2nd place to Porter to the chequers, Humberston in 3rd.

Race two seen Josh Adams with the holeshot, but Porter took the lead in lap 2 and Adams was also passed by Humberston relegating him to third for the 6 lap sprint.

The final race in the Pro Open class for the day was worth waiting for and the crowd stayed to the end to see the young Bunbury boy Anthony Hicks take on his rivals.

The race was on from the start with Humberston taking the holeshot, the crowd in the pit spectator area cheered with every pass, jump and corner.

Hicks took the lead and held onto it for 2 laps, but Humberston got it back over the Autotrader jump, Porter also took advantage and squeezed into 2nd on the same lap with Hicks now back in 3rd with Louis Calvin closing in, all 4 riders close and coming into lapped riders.

Taking advantage and some losing pace, closing the gap for a tight finish, with the last lap board up, Hicks made his move and passed Humberston, but was passed back immediately, Porter motored to the win, Humberston in 2nd, Hicks 3rd and Louis Calvin in 4th

The Pro lites class was flagged as the one to bring surprises from the upgrading Juniors entering seniors for 2012.

Erhard Pajewski took the early lead in race 1 with David Birch close behind, Dean Porter had made his way up into 3rd and when Birch and Pajewski tangled in the S Bend, Porter streaked to the front and increase his lead every lap, Josh Adams took 2nd with Dylan Sexton in 3rd.

In race two Porter took the holeshot in the 6 lap sprint and lead the race from start to finish, still putting in fast laptimes on the ever increasingly whooped out track, Birch 2nd and Scott Kramer 3rd.

Race three again seen Porter out front early with Birch in tow, this wasnt to last as Birch's woes for the day saw him relegated back a handful of places, Josh Adams consistency saw him take 2nd, with Scott Kramer in 3rd, Reece Colgan in 4th and Mitchell Taylor in 5th.

Dean Porter was stoked to take the double victory at round one of the Western Australian state titles, and put the win down to his increased fitness level in 2012.

"I am so stoked on winning both classes at the state round," said Porter. "Hopefully I can keep it up."

"That track was real rough. Big thanks to all my sponsors for making this year possible, and big thanks to epic lifestyle fitness I haven't felt that good on a rough coastal park ever" Porter concluded.


Luke Gaisford Won the Pro Quad class
 
The Quad Championship class race 1 was hole shotted by Jordan Dummett with Luke Gaisford coming through for the pass to take the lead, with Josh Mckay following him through to get into second place, a battle royal between Dummett and Mckay and Joel Mortimer ensued with Ryan Lancaster suffering a visible mechanical problem, holding down 5th.

Gaisford took the win with McKay 2nd and Dummett 3rd.

Race 2 saw International NZ visitor
take the holeshot but the deep sand whoops caught him out with a huge back end kick, that almost saw him over the bars, Gaisford motored on to the lead with Lancaster in second and Dummett in 3rd.

At the start of race 3 Gaisford got the holeshot with Lancaster on his back wheels , a tight race between the two with only seconds between them for most of the moto, Mortimer took a superb 3rd place in front of Vincent and McKay.

The next round of the 2012 Smarter than Smoking State championships will be held at Stockton Park Collie on May 27th
