Wilson Todd has won the QLD SX championship after victory at Jimboomba on the weekend

16 year old supercross sensation, Wilson Todd, secured his first professional championship, winning the Queensland Supercross championship after the final round was ran over the weekend in front of a big crowd at the Hill‰Ûªs College, Jimboomba.

After winning the opening round just two weeks ago, Todd needed little more than a well- constructed ride to the podium to land his first championship but a drama filled 15 lap Pro Lites final unfolded after the gates dropped.

Todd hit the first turn directly behind, Serco Yamaha‰Ûªs Luke Clout, in second place but as the field exited the turn and under instruction to only double the opening triple, Clout jumped the huge leap and instantly received a 20second penalty.

The Serco rider then set off and started to gap the field and held nearly a five second lead just prior to the halfway point. But Wilson Todd found his groove and started to reel Clout back in and by lap 11, Clout‰Ûªs rear view mirror was full of the number 41. He drew alongside him once then on the next to last lap made another pass for the lead only for Clout to instantly fight back and make an aggressive move on the exit of a turn.

The pair collided with Todd almost losing his balance and allowing Clout to scoot away to take the chequered flag but with the 20second penalty hanging over his head, Clout was relegated back to fourth and Wilson Todd declared the winner of the round.

First round runner- up, Jay Wilson, was a non-starter at the event after a training incident during the week.

The Jimboomba win gave Todd the championship and he was elated after the final was completed.

‰ÛÏI saw Luke jump the triple on the first lap and thought about the penalty but as the race went on I forgot all about it and just tried to catch him and go for the win. I was able to get close a couple of times and even got passed him once but when we hit on the second last lap, I remembered about the penalty and just bought it home.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs awesome to win tonight and it‰Ûªs great to have so many people out here watching us race. Even with the threat of storms and rain, the venue was full and the track turned out unreal.

‰ÛÏThank you to Scott Bannan and Robbie Marshall for the efforts in running the series and to the GYTR Yamaha team for always having my back,‰Û
