SHIPWRECK Coast Motocross Club president Murray Stuchbery is confident weather won’t affect a rescheduled competition this weekend.
Stuchbery said the club would host the Western Region Motocross Series’ final round at Lake Gillear, barring a downpour.
He said he was “90 per cent” certain it would go ahead.
“With this wind and no more rain, the track will dry out beautifully,” he said yesterday. “But you never know with Warrnambool.”
The two-day round was pencilled in for October 10 and 11 but was postponed because of a wet track.
Stuchbery said he expected the final round to be cancelled if the club couldn’t run it this weekend.
“It wouldn’t financially be a burden but it’d be disappointing because there are only a few points between a few riders and it’s the last chance to have a win,” he said.
Shipwreck Coast has 13 riders holding podium places entering the final round.
Stephen Square is third in A grade open and Raymond Cole and Jeremy Laylock sit first and second respectively in the A grade senior lite section.
Lachlan Davis leads the B grade senior lite category, while Glen Taylor (veterans 35-44 clubman) and Michael Pickert (veterans overs 45) are second in their respective classes. Deegna Kinna holds third in C grade 65cc class.
Six Shipwreck Coast juniors are in title contention.
Corey Hawkes and Cameron Pickert are second and third in the B grade junior lite section, Mitch Riodan and Beau Stuchbery hold the first two spots in the C grade junior lite class and Jak Cameron and Brandon Fish-Kidd sit first and second in the C grade junior 125 category.
Western Region practice will be held from 1pm tomorrow, with racing from 8am Sunday.
