Green, who made the transition back to the E2 class for 2016, took the round win over the two-day event in dusty conditions. His win was 28 seconds clear of Beau Ralston, who competed on a big bore WR-F, in a team 1-2 and a dominant day for the WR.

The duo split special test wins on day one taking four wins each in a tight days racing but it was Green who stormed home on day two with six special test wins from the eight contested to take an impressive first up win for the WR450F.

Ralston made a strong start to his 2016 campaign and took the challenge right up to Green. He won the opening two special tests of day one and made Green work super hard for his win. Over the two days and 90 minutes of racing, only 28 seconds separated the pair in what were hot and dusty conditions.

‰ÛÏThe weekend went well and the big WR did a great job,‰Û
