Jessica Gardiner stood up to the task and took out the Women‰Ûªs class, whilst Richard Chibnall continued his form in the Veterans.

Geoffrey Ballard was back to his best in the Masters class proving to be just a class above throughout today‰Ûªs racing. In a first for AORC, the vintage bikes were welcomed to Dungog with the Evo Pre 86 machines and it would be Ashley Sprenger taking the inaugural win.
