Dean Porter and Jyden Rykers Take Round Honours At Beverley

Posted:

Beverley Districts Motorcycle Club hosted its very first Make Smoking History WAMX Senior State Championships on Sunday the 25th of July.

The bitterly cold morning and delay when fog swept in was soon forgotten as the primed track surface offered up a surprise package of a technical track layout making passing difficult, yet racing as exciting as ever.

A terrific turnout of spectators offered their vocal input with cheers of support as the riders were on point with competitive tough racing the supreme standout in all 24 races delivering something different for race fans.

The MX1 class continues to deliver the premiere class of racing and round 4 was no exception to the rule with three different race winners for the day.

Louis Calvin was out before the racing even started with rear suspension lower linkage damage sustained in practice and defending champion and early race leader Kyle Webster crashing out and ending his day in the first moto.

Dean Porter took the round win (1-2-2) to hold on to the series lead with Robbo Lovett second (2-5-1) and Connor Tierney taking the third step of the podium (3-4-3). Porter took the first moto win ahead of Lovett, Tierney, Mitch Taylor and Charlie Creech.

Porter secured the result despite not getting his starts dialled in across the day, but was able to push through the packs to secure two second place finishes and was looking the goods to make the passes for the wins before the laps ran out.

Liam Whisler took his first MX1 moto win holding out Porter Mitch Taylor, Tierney and Lovett.

The final moto win went to Robbo Lovett who edged out the hard charging Porter in second, Connor Tierney in third ahead of Liam Whisler and Craig Bolton.

Mitch Taylor was again the perfect holeshot rider and early race leader before being swamped back through the pack, Paul Humberston was strong before two race crashes hampered his day and damaged not only his bike but overall results for the fourth round.

It was one of the most entertaining MX2 rounds with bar to bar action, block passes, tumbles, and good old fashioned hard racing to keep the riders and spectators on their toes.

Continuing from their MXD rivalry on the east coast in the MX Nationals back on home turf is defending MX2 champ and series leader Jayden Rykers and second placed Connor Tierney.

With Jake Fewster, Jack Taylor and Dylan Heard offering up plenty in the five way battle in the exciting MX2 class. Round 4 at Beverley was no exception with Rykers securing the round win (1-1-5) by a solitary one point from second placed Tierney (4-2-1) and Fewster third by another mere point as a result of his (2-3-2) results.

Impressive rides from Dylan Heard, Baylee Webb, John Darroch, Jack Taylor and Jack Perkusich kept their championship points title chase within grasp, although with the calibre of riding from the top three, this will be hard to beat this season.

In the Veterans class, Ben Hothersall was unstoppable securing a perfect result for the round win (1-1-1) from second placed Scott Petricevich (2-2-2) and Brendon Parnham who picked up third for the day. The results now have Parnham with the series lead from Trevor Unstead and Tim Dunstan. Brett Graham, Matt Briggs and Chris Fleay put in strong rides to add to their championship points.

In the Womens Championship Chelsea Blakers was back to her best taking the round win (1-2-1) despite being challenged by Storme Green who took second for the day (2-1-2) and Hannah Bagnall who took the third step of the podium after finishing with a a trifecta of third place finishes for her scorecard. Leeha Worthington, Hannah Lovett and Lana Woodhead were tussling positions and were solid standouts for the first of three Womens rounds this season.

The Intermediate Lites was dominated by Kenlon Youl who secured the top of the box with a clean sweep of the round. Jacob Schaafsma holds the series lead by virtue of his second place finish with Kurt Baxter picking up third overall capitalising on his outstanding starts, despite opposition from Mario Dercole, Grant Buchan, Josh Andrews, and Craig Divitini picking up strong results over the day.

Jake McKay dominated the Clubman Lites with three perfect rides (1-1-1) with a tie in the points reverting to the countback system which had Shaun Templeman second and Jamie Nickless third for the day. Alex Christie, Brayden Hahn and Tex Fabriziani rode strong races to shake up the points standing heading into the next round at Bunbury.

Clubman Open class had Nathan Cox as the surprise round 4 winner on top of the podium by one point over Caleb Mills with series leader Callum Evans picking up third overall. Inside the top ten for most of the day were Brandon Richman, Jason Woolfit, Shaun Roser, Corey White, Brayden Luksa and Kile Scoon-Reid.

Intermediate Open was another tight finish in the points chase and Mario Dercole secured the top of the podium by a point (2-1-5) from Dylan Dejong second and Anthony Rubotham securing third place. Adam Smith was in contention for moto two results until a massive crash had the race reflagged and Smith taking no further part in the day‰Ûªs racing.

This opened the door for Mario Dercole to shine through and take the win in the restart, and also has Robotham‰Ûªs results as the new series leader heading into the next round at Bunbury. Stuart Eardley-Wilmott, Hayden Scoby-Smith, Bryce Williams, Aaron Chircop, Adam Smith, Brock Nelson, Grant Buchan, and Matt Rowlands have provided solid result in this class of mixed results.
