It was a break out night for Richie Evans, who is contesting his first season in the SX1 division. Evans took a very respectable eighth place at the opening round in Brisbane just a week ago and now has improved that to a fifth place finish at the weekend in Adelaide.
Still not back to 100% strength in his shoulder, Evans had a night to remember with the sixth fastest time in qualifying, taking second in his heat race, sixth in Superpole and then a stunning fifth place finish in the main event and finishing ahead of many other fancied rivals.
Again, he had great starts and even ran as high as fourth for a lot of the main event before home town hero Brett Metcalfe made his way past later in the race.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm pretty happy with that,‰Û
