At the final round of the 2011 WA State Road Racing Championships Lubomir Safranek (Dynapump Honda CBR1000RR) won the Steel Blue 'B' Grade Series from Andrew Schrape (Industrial People Kawasaki ZX-10) and Shane Martin (Albany Kawasaki ZX-10).

Safranek had everything go his way for the first three rounds but with machinery problems at round four; his colours were lowered by Andrew Schrape. This time he was beaten by Shane Martin with Schrape second and he took third which was more than sufficient for the Series win with 113 points, Schrape had 105 and Martin 96 points.

With Dan Stauffer having already been declared the 2011 Steel Blue Superbike Champion on the (Warp Speed BMW S1000RR) after his eleventh win of the year at the conclusion of Round 4. He still had one final goal for the 2011 season and that was to be undefeated, so it was to try for fourteen wins from fourteen starts. When he hit the track for practice it was clear that he wasn't in any mood to be taken lightly, he was to give it his all, and he did just that.

It is a record that hasn't been achieved in recent times and he did it in style, with three comfortable wins on the day to clean sweep the season.

In race one Stauffer was a clear winner from Cameron Stronach (Wattsy's Motorsport BMW S1000RR) with Jamie Boland (Weld West Kawasaki ZX-10) third.

Race 2 was again dominated by Stauffer with Ralph Mammoliti (Causeway Kawasaki ZX-10) getting his best result of the day in second place with Adam Senior (Silkolene Honda CBR 1000) taking the minor placing. Cameron Stronach crashed out of the race damaging his left shoulder, and took no further part in the day's proceedings.

By the time you read this he will have some minor surgery and should be well on his way to a full recovery. Stuart Adams (Honda CBR 1000RR) crashed in practice and broke his pelvis which will require extensive rest, I'm sure we wish both riders a speedy recovery. In the final analysis Stauffer won with a perfect score of 350 points, second was Mammoliti on 243, just piping Jamie Boland 240 points for the runner-up spot.

Mark Gill (Plumbsmart Honda CBR 1000) took out the 'C' Grade Championship which is incorporated in the Superbike Championship from Steve Chittenden (Rockingham Powersports Honda CBR 1000) with Club Captain Marty Mott (Homecraft Cabinets Kawasaki ZX-10) third.

A second title headed east with Christan Casella (Aark Electric Triumph 675) winning the two races, after Race 1 was declared null and void after two red flag incidents. In race 2 it was Casella who won the race by six seconds from Mason Coote (Wattsy's Motorsport Yamaha R6) with his brother Aaiden Coote (Herbalife Honda CBR 600) third.

The result of the third race was identical, and the WesTrac Supersport Title went to Casella with 252.5 points, from Mason Coote with 224 and Kalgoorlie youngster Jack Coyle (Kalgoorlie Bodyworks Suzuki 600) taking the minor championship place with 192.5 points. Nigel Lloyd (JB Racing Kawasaki 600) took out the Superstock title with two wins from Jarrad Gardner (JB Racing Yamaha R6) two second places and Mark Donnelly (Onlineinduction.com Yamaha R6) two third places. The Series results were Lloyd first with 300.5 points, Donnelly second on 235.5 and Gardner third on 192.5 points.

Tom Hatton (Fastline Honda RS125) two wins and a second place for the round, Sam Clarke (Plumbsmart Honda RS125) one win and two seconds and Ben Millington (Mum & Dad Honda RS125) three third places, finished in that order in the Fastline 125GP Championship. Hatton scored 295 points from Clarke on 241 and Millington on 166 points. Tina Davis (V&F Welding Suzuki SV650) took out the F2 Series from Mitchell Gould and Iain Scott.

As predicted Des Harvey/Geoff Jackson won their first State Championship with two wins and a second place with Trevor Clyma/Paul Brider taking two second places and a win. Graeme Evans/Jonathon Ralph/Simon Davie was in the chair for the final round took third place for the season. Harvey and Jackson scored 329.5 points, Clyma and Brider 300 and Evans, Ralph and Davie 182 points.

In the Industrial People Clubman 600 Danny Pottage won both races with Mike Edgecombe coming home in second place in the first race and David Clarke third. In the second of the day's races it was again Pottage who took the win from Clarke with Ray Anset, who came out of retirement for this round in third place.

In the industrial People Clubman 1000 Chris Hyland won the first race from Shaun Gardener and Glenn Lowe. In the second race it was Gardener who went one better and took the win from Kurt Macomber and Leroy Maclou.

In the final race of the year, the Club Handicap Jayde Bowen won the race from John Middleton and Robin Huth in third.
