The Proformance Racing team are looking towards a big finish to the 2016 domestic racing season after a mixed first half showing during this years Motul MX National Championship.
The team formally known as WBR (Whitten Brothers Racing) come into 2016 with more than just a new look, with the outfit making the switch from Kawasaki machinery to a fleet of Yamaha YZ250F‰Ûªs, while also securing the services of the highly talented Kale Makeham to spearhead the teams assault on this years MX2 championship along with Lachie Davis and Hugh McKay who are competing in the MXD championship.
After a solid start to the season at Horsham at round one, the team left round two at Appin on a high with Makeham taking the team to their maiden MX2 class moto win, winning the opening moto for the day and finishing the round on the second step of the podium.
Unfortunately is was a short lived celebration for the team with Makeham suffering crashes early in both motos at the mud filled round three held at Broadford, before the Victorian was forced to the sidelines with a shoulder injury for rounds four and five of the series.
In a positive step towards regaining the success found at round two on the national scene, Makeham returned to racing on the weekend just gone, taking the round win at the third round of the Victorian motocross Championships in the Pro Lites class.
