Bunbury Motorcycle Club hosted round 3 of the Smarter tha Smoking WA State Motocross Championships on Sunday the 20th of June.

Following up on massive TV campaign through GWN and local newspaper editorials on local riders, a huge crowd turned out surrounding the entire track, with cars 2 and 3 deep.

Commentators Nicki Shae-Howell and Beau Lindau, kept the masses entertained with their professional race calling all day, while the riders, the ones everyone came to see, put on some of the best racing of the year.

Shaun Cornick a youngster just out of Juniors has certainly set the Pro Lite Championship alight, taking the lead in race one, before a stack put him back to second, to let Josh Adams take the lead, with Paul Humberston in third. Shaun Cornick would go on to take 2nd place in all 3 races to win the day, and his first 1st place podium in a senior state round.

Cornick sits 2nd on the overall standings just one point shy of Adams, who took two wins for the day with a costly error in the 6 lap sprint, denying him the overall win. David Birch took the win in race 2, the 6 lap sprint race is ultra competitive, where he held the lead from start to finish, with a narrow 4 second buffer between himself and Cornick.

Paul Humberston must feel somewhat of the veteran amongst the Pro Lites but consistently took 3rd in each race, 3rd overall and holds 3rd in the championship.

The big guns of the Pro Open field were all out in force and the battle at the front has become a five way dual between Dean Porter, Chris Errey, Louis Calvin, Shane Murray and Jamie Shaw.

Race 1 saw a battle royal between Porter and Calvin with less than a spoke separating them across the finish line, it was Calvin to claim victory with 3rd placed Chris Errey, 50 seconds behind the leaders.

Race 2 saw the series leader Dean Porter do the most incredible endo into the first corner with Jamie Shaw, unlocking the handle bars from the spokes, Porter took off with just 6 laps to catch Calvin who already had a massive lead, the crowd watched in awe as Porter passed rider after rider for a drag race across the finish line for 2nd place finish to Calvin, while Jake Watling losing the fianl dual with Porter took 3rd.

Race 3 and a predictable Louis Calvin holeshot, with Dean Porter in pursuit was about to become a re-enactment of race 2 except this time, Calvin went down in corner 2, as everyone passed him, he set about chasing down the leaders, in one lap passing 9 riders, could he do the impossible? those of us who watch Louis, knew he could make it back to the top, lap after lap he passed more riders, his laptimes far quicker than everyone on the track, Porter cruised with a diminishing 40 second lead, as Calvin passed Murray, then Errey and finally Shaw. Dean Porter took the win, but Calvin took out the day, Errey in third.

Dean Porter still leads the Championship at the half way point, with Chris Errey in 2nd and Louis Calvin in 3rd Shane Murray 4th and Jamie Shaw 5th

Quad Championship was dominated this round by Ryan Lancaster, Luke Gaisford and Chad McKay, the track conditions werent for the faint hearted, the 10minute moto's taking its toll on most of the riders while Lancaster suffered in race 1 going over the bars to hand Gaisford the win, he didnt make that mistake again, and took out the win for the day and extend his lead for the series. Gaisford took 2nd in race 2 and 3 with hard fought battles with McKay, while Glen Ashworth and Josh Higson would battle out the minor positions.

Round 4 of the Championship will be held at AJS Motorcycle Club Neerabup on July 11th.
