Hunter Lawrence Wraps Up His First Title For 2015 at Tivoli

Posted:

After five rounds of the Shell Advance Sunshine State Motocross series, the Queensland Yamaha Junior Racing team of Hunter Lawrence and Levi Rogers have all but locked in their podium positions for the series.

Tivoli Raceway, west of Brisbane, hosted the fifth round and it proved to be another enterprising day for the team with both guys tasting plenty of success.

Hunter Lawrence has wrapped up the 13-15 years 125 class with one round remaining after another dominant day at Tivoli. He again won all three motos and so far has been undefeated on his YZ125 in 2015. He holds a 116 point lead over his nearest rival and with only 105 points available from each round, Lawrence can‰Ûªt be beaten in the series.

He also holds a handy point lead in the 15 years 250cc class with an 85point gap back to second place. Tivoli again proved to be a happy hunting ground for the Sunshine Coast teenager with a perfect three wins from three starts.

All it will take is a smart opening moto at the final round in Coolum to secure his second series win but Lawrence will continue to push as he works towards much larger goals to finish his 2015 season.

After 28 races, across both his 125 and 250cc, Lawrence is yet to be beaten in the Sunshine State series this year. But with a world championship coming up as well as the Australian Junior Motocross championship and a supercross series all on the horizon, Lawrence will continue to work hard.

‰ÛÏAnother good day today and it provided plenty of challenges as the rain came during the day, changing the track conditions drastically. The Tivoli track has been changed recently and I like what they have done with it as the corners form up really well and the jumps are good fun.

‰ÛÏMy bikes were again awesome and it was good to have my Dad here today for the first time this season.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm now heading to New Zealand to spend a couple of weeks working with Josh Coppins as part of my preparations for the World Junior MX Championships in Spain during July. It has been awesome that Yamaha Australia have been able to arrange this trip for me and I look forward to learning from Josh and his experiences of racing at the highest level,‰Û
