16 May @ Killarney
On Friday 15th we dumped 50.000L of water on the track and as luck would have it, it rained on Friday evening. When we arrived on Saturday we knew the texture would be great and it sure was!! Not a speck of dust and the riders loved the slightly muddy conditions. The little fellows were caught out a bit and we saw a number of them slipping and rolling in the dirt. This did not deter our 50cc campaigner Lucca Mynhardt, who cleaned up. He demolished the field of Pro Senior riders. Lucca is in great form and I predict a win at the PE national in 2 weeks time. His little brother Andrea, our 50cc junior rider, could not race as he had a bit of flu – he was there to support his older brother however.

In the 85cc class, there were no surprises as Justin Sangster stormed ahead in both heats to secure the overall win. Second went to Calum Marriott and in third place was Ethan Hoffman (first time on the podium). Certainly an “all Orbis affair”.

In the Pro-mini class it was again Justin who won both heats, ahead of team mate Calum Marriott. We missed Brett Roberts who was still nursing his hand after the fall in practice at Rover three weeks ago.
Bo-Dene Scott is getting faster and faster and is really looking smooth and confident on the 125. She has come to grips with the power of the machine and racing with the boys is doing her the world of good. I still predict that she will win the Ladies class at the North Vs South in October.
Kevin Cassie our MX 2 rider, had a bit of bad luck early in the day, losing his sump plug during practice. Luckily enough the engine survived (Well, it is a Kawasaki!!). He jumped onto a borrowed bike – thanks to Adam Roger, and was able to circulate and accumulate some points in heat 1. By heat 2, he had replaced the plug and was able to race. Kevin secured a second place in the MX 2 class. Well done Kevin.
