Matt Moss And Max Anstie On Top At The 2022 Australian Supercross Championship Round 3

Posted:

Matt Moss was ecstatic to be back on top of the SX1 podium in front of his many fans and family, the nine time champion now sits second in the standings 8 points behind Just Brayton

In an eventful night of supercross action at the Newcastle Triple Crown, it was BBR 102 Motorsports Matt Moss and Max Anstie who came away victorious, posting three strong results across the three main event format.

An always interesting format, the Triple Crown generated some great racing across the night, while the technical Newcastle track reached up and bit its fair share of racers throughout the night.

In what was a strong return to form, nine-time Australian Supercross Champion Matt Moss took the overall win after winning main event’s one and three, whilst Dylan Wills posted a strong trio of results to land second overall and notch a career first SX1 podium.

With Justin Brayton and Aaron Tanti entering the night tied on points, Brayton employed a calculated approach to the night show however the defending champion suffered a bike problem while leading the final race and had to coast for the final few laps, handing the lead and overall win to Moss. As a result Brayton still finished the night on the podium with third overall and now takes the Championsip leaders Red Plate into the final round. Tanti’s night ended in a big crash while leading the second main event and a DNF for the third, which significantly hampers his 2022 title hopes.

Max Anstie made it three SX2 round wins from three contested to carry a handy 20 point lead into the final round.

The SX2 Class belonged once again to the Englishman Max Anstie, who recorded a 1, 1, 3 scorecard for his third overall in a row, followed by teammate Wilson Todd in second position, and New South Wales local Rhys Budd in third. Budd also claimed his first-ever moto win when he crossed the line first in the final moto. Todd goes into the final round with a handy 20 point lead in the standings.

The SX3 Class saw a heated battle between Jack Mather and Kiwi Cole Davies, who split race wins with the former taking the overall win. Davies finished second with a 1 – 2 scorecard, while Jake Cannon took the final position on the podium. Mather and Davies now go into the final round tied on 47 points each.

The series now heads to the final round in Wagga Wagga on December the third, where each championship will be decided at the Wagga Wagga International Speedway.
