The Queensland Yamaha Junior Racing team started their state motocross championships off in good fashion at round one of the series held at the Mackay circuit over the weekend.
On a perfect winter weekend, the duo of Jake Williams and Levi Rogers rode well and put their Yamaha‰Ûªs up front in the majority of the races and kicked off their championship aspirations with some spirited racing.
Jake Williams dominated the 15 years 250cc class taking the perfect three wins from three starts to take control of the class in the series. Williams showed good speed and maturity as he worked his way around the jump laden Mackay track.
He was also a contender in the 13-15 years 125cc class and narrowly missed taking the double victory by just two points. Williams racked up 3-3-1 results to finish second for the round and only a late race fall in the second moto prevented him from another class win.
‰ÛÏThe weekend went pretty well and a side from a couple of small things, I‰Ûªm happy with the way I rode. I changed a few things in my training in the last week or so and hopefully I can keep improving n those areas.
‰ÛÏThank you to my parents for their hard work over the weekend as well as the Mackay club and event sponsors for putting on a good event,‰Û
