As the temperature soared to 31 degrees at Appin, the firey conditions didn‰Ûªt reduce the heat of the on track competition on the final day of Group 1 under 12 racing at the KTM Australian Junior Championships.

The track had formed soft ruts in shady sections of the track, with fast lines became hardback, and added braking bumps allowed spectacular racing for the finals today at Appin, 29 September 2014.

The newly crowned Junior World 65 Champion Jett Lawrence backed his world championship up with dual Australian Championships. The Queensland based Lawrence was undefeated on his KTM65 and finished in second place in one moto before continuing his dominance on the 85cc 9-U12 years.

New South Welshman Billy Payne and South Australian Alex Larwood completed the podium of the 65cc 9-U11.

Regan Duffy who was able to notch a win against Lawrence finished second in the 85cc 9-U12, and New Zealander Brodie Connolly finished third.

Tasmanian Jett Burgess Stevens used his Loretta Lyns experience to finish strong in the 50cc Division 2. Victorian Connor Towill started a change in the opening moto for the championship however the remaining of his Australian Championships would be devastating. Braden Plath‰Ûªs consistent top 3 finishes secured second place for the Queenslander while New South Welshman Jasper Moon completed the podium

With 5 starts, Queenslander Noah Smerdon was undefeated in the 65cc 7-U9 class. Senna Agius‰Ûª strong finishes in the final three motos stomping on second place. New South Welshman Ryder Kingford had accumulated enough points to hold off the late charge of United States resident Johnathan Weber.

Western Australian Regan Duffy finished strong in the 65cc 11-U12 for the championship, while Victorian Liam Andrews rode smart to cement the second step on the podium. 1 Point would decide third place as Queenslanders Noah Ferguson and Tye Jones, with Ferguson accumulating the 1 point advantage for the podium.

Group 2 over 12 signed in and had machines scrutineered for tomorrows practice and timed practice sessions.
