Queensland Yamaha Junior Racing‰Ûªs Jake Williams claimed the 2016 Sunshine State Motocross Series win in the 15 years 250cc division at the final round held at Toowoomba‰Ûªs Echo Valley over the weekend.
Williams entered the final round in a commanding position having not lost a race at the opening four rounds and only needed to complete the first race to nail down the series win. But Williams was determined to keep his good form going and went on to win the final round with 1-2-1 results and earned 522 points from a possible 525 available.
He was simply a class above on his YZ250F throughout the series and deserved his victory.
He backed that up with a strong on his YZ125 to finish second in the series, just 10 points behind series winner and follow Yamaha rider, Jack Kukas. Williams and Kukas entered the final round just three points apart in what has been a good battle between the pair but Williams‰Ûª hopes of winning the series were dashed in race two at Toowoomba when he was involved in a first turn pile up.
Jake continued to fight on throughout the day and finished the round in third with 3-4-1 results and left the Echo Valley circuit feeling positive about his season.
