In a little over a week the WAMX Make Smoking History State Junior Motocross Championships Round 4 will head to Bunbury the hard pack is gone it is now onto the sand.
That’s right the Bunbury Motorcycle Club will be hosting this round at their Shrubland Park circuit which is approximately 1.6km long of grueling sand, with some changes to the track during the off season this will be the first time some of the riders have seen this track.
This season it has been a joy to see the return of 50cc Demo Class these up and coming riders have been out in force so far this series, giving the spectators a look at some of the sports future motocross champions.
Can Kayden Minear hold off the in form Deacon Paice in the 65cc 10-U12 years? There has been some great battles on track between these two riders with only 15 points separating them. Patrick Butler will also be looking to ensure he holds his lead over Kai McGinty for the minor podium position.
The leaders in the 50cc Auto 7-U19 years had a tough last round, but Mason Brown still holds the red plate over Deagan Fort and Damien Leighton who are tied on points, by a comfortable 31 points but anything can happen when these little champions hit the punishing sand track.
With Regan Duffy and Corben Weinert back, can Rhys Burnett hold onto the red plate in both the 128/250cc 13-U16 years and the 100-125cc 13-U16 years. Seth Manuel and Sam Stephen are looking to close the gap as this round in the 100-125cc class. Conan Forrester is only 13 points behind Rhys in the 128/250cc class with only 21 points separating the top four in this class the racing should be epic.
So far this series Jae Dowsett has dominated the top spot on the podium winning every race in the Quad up to 200/250cc 12-U16 years can he do it again? Flynn Burton, Joshua McQuade and Brooke Hall will all be trying to make up ground fighting for places on the podium.
The 86cc 12-U16 years will be all action with Liam Atkinson, Brock Flynn and Jake Turner all pushing themselves and their machines to the limit to secure their positions and perhaps even make up some spots, this round could prove interesting and should provide some awesome racing for the spectators.
How will the Quads 8-U12 years go in the sand, they have been super quick on the hard pack tracks, machine set up will be a key factor. So far in the series Keenan Murphy has been out in front but will he be able to hold his lead in the series over Nichole McDonnell?
