Todd Waters has been crowned the 2020 King of Capricorn after an impressive display of racing at the Six Mile circuit at Rockhampton.

Waters, the current Australian Motocross champion, claimed the crown and the hefty prizemoney to go along with it, after a full weekend of on track action that saw Waters not only win the King of Capricorn feature event but also the MX1 (450cc) and MX2 (250cc) pro divisions as well.

The feature race saw the top 40 riders from the MX1 and MX2 classes race their way through a series of sprint races that saw the last seven riders from each race eliminated until the final 15 lined up and ready to unleash in a three lap frenzy.

The star studded field included Yamaha‰Ûªs Kirk Gibbs, Aaron Tanti and Jay Wilson as well as young guns Jai Walker and Noah Ferguson, with all riders already under plenty of physical duress from racing all weekend.

From the drop of the gate, it was Waters who led the field and built a small gap on the stars behind him but he made a mistake at the half way point and that was all Waters needed to get to the front and take a popular victory in front of an enthusiastic crowded gathered at the Rockhampton track.

‰ÛÏWhat an awesome event,‰Û

Taking the Prince of Capricorn in the junior division was Mackay‰Ûªs, Jackson Camilleri. Camilleri was on fire all weekend and like Waters, took victory in his 125 and 250cc classes over the weekend before going on to cap of a huge weekend for the teenager who celebrated his 16th birthday on Sunday, with an emphatic win in the junior feature event. ‰ÛÏIt was good to get the win here and finish the season on a good note. I had an injury that saw me miss a few events earlier in the year and then I wasn‰Ûªt prepared as I wanted to be for the state titles but it‰Ûªs good to be back up front and winning again,‰Û

Despite the 20K on offer across the weekend, the vibe of the event was fun and light-hearted with all the pro races taking time to work with the young riders. Each rider was assigned a class to mentor and encouragement prize packs were handed out to young riders by their heroes.

‰ÛÏWith our national events cancelled due to COVID, to have this event was awesome for everyone in Queensland,‰Û
With the dust now settled on a successful event, race secretary Debbie Dark can now reflect on the weekend.

‰ÛÏThe event came about because plenty of enthusiastic people wanted to continue racing in Queensland. We were due to have the Australian Junior Motocross Championships the past week, but when they was cancelled, the club got together with supporters and we put the event on.

‰ÛÏIt was great to see so many sponsors support it and not only raise money to host it, but also boast $20,000 in prizemoney. I also must thank the dedication of the people in our club who put in so much hard work as well those that helped me behind the scenes. The smile on the riders and their thanks at the end of the weekend made it all worth it.‰Û
