In the senior divisions, all eyes were on the MX2 class with another star-studded field. The Yamaha trio of Aaron Tanti, Jesse Dobson and Jay Wilson were up against Todd Waters as well as host of other up and coming hot shots.
After the first two races, five points separated Tanti, Waters and Wilson ‰ÛÒ in that order. As the last race blasted off ‰ÛÒ the running order was Wilson, Waters and Tanti which would have seen a three way tie for the championship if they were to cross the finish line in that order.
Just before the half way point, Tanti made a mistake and dropped to fourth place, leaving Wilson and Waters to fight it out with the gap around three to five seconds as they charged through lapped traffic.
In the end, Wilson took the race win and with it the Queensland Championship over Waters by virtue of a better finish in the final race.
Tanti was third for the day but despite the fall in the last race, showed his sand riding skills have improved significantly. Dobson held down fourth while Japanese rider, Kota Toriyabe took sixth making it four of the top six riders on a Yamaha.
Levi Rogers was unable to complete the weekend after injuring his arm in the first race but is expected back on the bike within a couple of weeks.
