The Evo Team will be, Craig Anderson, Glen Bell, James Deakin, and Kirk Hutton.

"I am Really excited to be returning to Farleigh, but devastated to be now out of the over 50's," Geoff Ballard said, "Last time at the event, I came from an average start and won the first moto! I encountered technical difficulties in the second and third moto‰Ûªs, but I‰Ûªm looking to rectify that this time.‰Û
