While the spotlight was once again on Australia‰Ûªs dominant under 19s rider Errol Willis as he took home another race win at round 3 of the Monster Energy SuperX series, the two riders behind him in second placed Mitch Norris and third placed Corey Lucas stepped up for their maiden trips on to the Podium.

Norris, a privateer rider from South Australia who is currently residing in country New South Wales, showed the speed and stability that those close to him know he possesses as he rode his way to his best ever result in any under 19s championship race.

The night started well for Norris, who was able to holeshot his heat race aboard his YZ 250 two stroke and lead every lap of the race taking a heat race win ahead of a fast finishing Willis.

Repeating his start in the main event Norris jumped out to the early lead, however he was quickly ran down by eventual race winner Willis. The Moss Institute backed rider composed himself and rode a measured race holding onto the second place spot all the way to the end.

As expected Norris was a little lost for words after such an exciting night though was able to express his joy of finally showing his potential.

‰ÛÏI am pretty pumped after tonight I didn‰Ûªt expect this at all, my plan was to get out there and get a good start, I was able to do that twice tonight, both times I told myself to just stay on and ride and a managed to do that‰Û
Corey Lucas on his way to another solid heat race before making the Podium in the Main.
For Corey Lucas this round was a chance to show the Supercross community that the heat race win the weekend before in Wollongong was no fluke and show he did as he rode his Hart and Huntington backed 250F to a solid third place for the night.

The third place finish also moved Lucas in his final series in the Under19s class up to second place in the series and in with a great chance of leaving the development class with a top overall result.

‰ÛÏIt feels so good to get up here, I trained so hard during the week and throughout the year and it looks like it has payed off by getting up on the podium. Hopefully this form keeps coming and I can finish the series out on the podium.‰Û
