The Final Round for 2018 –Round 4 of the ‘Consent2Go’ State Road Racing Championships will be held at the Collie Motorplex on Sunday October 21st.
The battle will be on as all Championships are still up for grabs!
Leading the charge in the Consent2Go Superbike Championship is Ben Stronach (VRT Signs Yamaha R1) having secured three strong wins at the previous round. So far Ben has taken 7 of the 9 race wins this season. Second place of the Championships is where the battle is happening with both younger brother Cameron Stronach (C&S Mining Ducati Panigale) and national rider Adam Senior (Silkolene Yamaha R1) tied on points. Tim de Bruyn (Razor Racing Kawasaki ZX 10) sits in 4th overall but will have a battle on his hands with both Rob Connaughton and Joel Beard just a few points away. De Bruyn also leads the Superbike C Grade Series on 183 points, from Connaughton 166, followed by Jason Lockyer 38 points, after competing in just one round.
SBK Points tally: Ben Stronach 213, Cameron Stronach 173, Adam Senior 173, Tim De Bruyn 137, Rob Connaughton 134, Joel Beard 133.
In the Cully’s Yamaha Supersport Championship, it has been Leigh Boujos (JB Racing Yamaha R6) who has thrown down the challenge pretty much all rounds with brother Tim Boujos (Mack 1 Kawasaki ZX 6) running consistently behind him. Round 3 saw Tim pushing hard and was probably he closest so far but his efforts came undone when he lost the front exiting T7 in the first race, quickly remounted but finished in 8th place. Josh Mathers (MDH Tuning Suzuki GSXR 600) scored a second and two third places to finish as runner-up on the day at the third round with Lachlan Hickey (20fourMotorsports Kawasaki ZX6) not far behind. Newcomer this season Luke Carmona has shown consistent results and been rewarded with his riding ability having recently been promoted to C Grade. Lachlan Hickey has a good lead in the Supersport C Grade Series from Nick Favazzo and
Jakob Kelsall. Both these riders had DNF’s in the last race of round 3, so they will be keen to make up for lost points.
Supersport Points tally: Leigh Boujos 217, Tim Boujos 178, Josh Mathers 157, Lachlan Hickey 136, Nick Favazzo 104, Luke Carmona 102, Jakob Kelsall 92, Terry Teo 75.
The Sidecar Championship last round saw Jero Joyce/Corey Blackman (GPR Trucks RHR Kawasaki ZX10) win the first two races with Graeme Evans/Jarrod Scott (RHR Kawasaki ZX10)
taking two strong second placings and challenging for the lead on several occasions, with Dillan McDermott/Paul Matthews (RS Decals RHR Kawasaki 1000) filling the minor place in each of these races. In the final race the two front runners battled it out for the win with Evans/Scott getting the better of the defending State Champion by .592 second with Murray Stronach/Steve Marshall (Swan Towing Suzuki 1000) taking third spot in the race. Joyce, Evans and McDermott were the overall top three. At the final round in October these two teams will continue to battle it out for the Championship title, but pressure will come from Des Harvey/Gary Cushnahan who unfortunately had a DNK last round in the final race. Anyone of the top 6 are still in with a slim chance of taking the title, but the money should be on Evans and Scott. Leading the F2 600 charge is veteran Micky Robbins and passenger Karen Dore who also find themselves sitting in 3rd overall for the Championship.
Sidecar Points tally: Evans/Scott 178, Harvey/Cushnahan 146 Robbins/Dore 141, Joyce/Blackman 137, Stronach/Marshall 113, D. McDermott /Matthews 105.
In the Production Championship it’s been a consistent battle between two young teenagers, Callum O’Brien (Banhams WA & Vic Yamaha R3) and Bronson Pickett (M&B Rubbish disposals Yamaha R3) finishing first and second respectively in each of the three races at the previous round. Earlier in the series young Lachlan Keogh managed to notch up a couple of wins and second placings but was missing from round 3. Ian Fryer-Smith (Michael Whyte Motorcycles Albany Yamaha R3) took two third and a fourth place, his best results for the season. With the 125GP bikes being low in numbers they were combined with the Production class and given a 10 second delayed start.
125GP pilot Tom Hatton (Hatton Racing Honda RS 125) managed a third outright in the second race. And also, currently leads the 125 Championship with Scott Topping holding 2nd on 105 pts and Dave Manson on 97 with young Cale Haines in 4th. Production Points tally: C O’Brien 192, B Pickett 174, Fryer-Smith 139, L Keogh 126, M Sita 117, B Carter 97.
Leigh Boujos took the win in the six lap ‘B’ Grade race from Josh Mathers and Terry Teo, to lead the B Series on 75 points from Mathers 40 pts closely followed by Teo on 38.
Entry level class of Clubman 600cc & 1000cc last round saw Lino Mazzali (Planet Honda CBR 1000RR) capitalize on Luke Carmona’s promotion to the Supersport Championship and made it a clean sweep of the three races. He will now join the Supersport Championship for the final round in October. Bernard Shanahan (Aussie Sun Electrics Buell 1125R) was second overall with Chris Fitzgerald (Waterboyz Plumbing & Gas Yamaha R1) taking overall third for the day. Nick Favazzo, Doug Matthews and Jeff Cameron will also be ones to watch in this class at the final round.
