Roma Provides Technical Challenge For The Opening 2015 Sunny State Round

Posted:

Roma held the first round of the Shell Advance Motorcycle Oils Sunshine State Motocross Series on the weekend of the 14th and 15th of March with a lot of ups and downs for the riders on a technical and challenging track.

Juniors racing on Saturday showed that senior riders should have something to worry about in the coming years with the likes of Hunter Lawrence dominating all of his 6 races on both his Yamaha YZ125 and YZF250.

It‰Ûªs hard not to talk about the Lawrence boys, with both Hunter and Jett extending big leads in all of their races.

With the series varying this year between sand and hard packed tracks nearly every round, it will be good to see some other riders challenging for the leads as the series moves forward.

Jesse Dobson rode strong all day on Sunday to put his Husqvarna on top of the Pro Open class with 1 - 1 - 2 inishes. He held off some strong charging competitors including Dan Reardon and Ford Dale all day, who made small mistakes which caused them to be fighting their way through the fields each race.

The locals did not disappoint either, with Darcy Jones coming into the season fit and strong to finish 3rd overall on the day.

With the split heats to cater for all of the 55 clubman lites riders, there were some very close battles and mixed bag of results with Geoffrey Chalmers coming out on top and holding an 8 point lead heading into round 2.

Some big prize money was won by Dan Reardon in the DUNLOP FEATURE RACE. Dan walked away with $500 for the win, with Ford Dale taking away $200 being runner up.

"A big thanks has to go out to Dunlop and also 1300 Locate who has increased the Feature Race prize money for the series!" Series organiser Robbie Marshal said.

"It was easy to see who had been doing their homework heading into the year and after speaking to a lot of riders in the pits, there‰Ûªs a lot that are now aware of what they need to work on with big expectations heading into the future rounds.

"Numbers were strong to start off the year, with over 370 bikes to fill the grids.

Round 2 will see the series head to Leyburn, which is more centrally located for most riders with series organisers predicting to see even greater numbers.
