With heavy rain falling in recent weeks and cyclonic weather conditions forecast for racing on Sunday, event organisers were relieved when the forecast came through giving Newcastle the all clear and what looked like it was going to be a mudfest turned out to be almost perfect racing conditions.

Brad Anderson set the early bench mark and a taste of things to come when when he qualified fastest for the Pro Open class by a whoppong 2.5 seconds ahead of Scotsman Billy Mackenzie and Kiwi Cody Cooper.

With everyone saying, "Brad Who" the Honda rider tore the Raymond Terrace track up taking three moto wins from three moto starts and take a rare clean sweep. Anderson's starts were not a feature of his day with the Brit having to fight for the lead in the early part of each moto. Dean Ferris, Mackenzie and Cheyne Boyd were the main riders to offer some resistance. At the end of the day for Anderson it was a perfect score card in his debut.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve been riding over in the UK and I‰Ûªve done a few GP‰Ûªs, and we just decided to come out here and try it all out and it‰Ûªs been pretty good,‰Û

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªve been racing together since we were six years old, we started our Pro careers together so it‰Ûªs been a good weekend ‰ÛÒ we‰Ûªve been having a laugh and I‰Ûªm enjoying my racing again which is the main thing," Mackenzie concluded.

CDR Rockstar Yamaha's Cheyne Boyd mounted the podium for the first time this year, Boyd actualy tied Mackenzie with 58 points each but was third on countback.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve had a good week and I‰Ûªm pumped with today,‰Û

‰ÛÏToday was really good, I knew I needed to get a good start in that last moto, after the start I just tried to sprint and get away as quick as possible so I could then settle in and cruise because the track was really gnarly,‰Û

‰ÛÏIt was a rough track and there was really only one dry line but I attacked it a lot harder than normal and it worked for me.

‰ÛÏThis result is just what I needed. My goals haven‰Ûªt changed, I still want to finish in the top five so with three rounds to go this is a great confidence builder,‰Û
