Youth Prevails at Barleigh Ranch – But Don’t Write Off The Oldies

Posted:

The 27th annual Trackmasters meeting staged at the Barleigh Ranch Raceway over the weekend (April 9 and 10) saw youth prevail in the main 2-wheel classes, but there was a strong message ‰ÛÒ do not write off the oldies yet!

Seventeen year old North Brisbane rider Jarred Brook was the star of the meeting winning the finals of all three classes he contested.

None of those final wins came easy, nor did Brook have it easy winning eight of his nine heat races across the three classes, in many of them he was made work hard.

Young or old, no quarter was given as fiercely competitive racing on both days excited a good-sized crowd and it augers well for the Australian Senior Dirt Track Championship meeting which will be staged at the venue in August.

Strangely in the Pro 250s Brook was the oldest rider on the rostrum after he led home two 16-year-olds ‰ÛÒ Sam Davies of Kempsey who was an Australian Junior champion last year and Boyd Hollis of Kurri Kurri, who was contesting his first meeting as a senior.

In the premier Pro 450 class it was again Brook, but only after a titanic ‰Û÷young versus old‰Ûª battle as he got the better of Paul Caslick, the super fit 48 year old ‰Û÷veteran‰Ûª, teenager Hollis and the Over 35s winner Tony Thomas.

Caslick, who was quick to acknowledge the talents of the teenagers, also quipped that ‰ÛÏthere is some life in us old boys yet‰Û
