GALLERY: Dirt flies at Lake Gillear

HUNDREDS of promising motocross riders contested the Victorian Junior Motocross Championships’ opening round at Lake Gillear on the weekend.

Shipwreck Coast Motocross Club president Alan Primmer said 300 juniors tackled the two-day event.

“It was a good weekend. The rain we had on Friday night was just what we needed,” he said. 

Beau Stuchbery and Samuel Chilton were the Warrnambool-based club’s best-performed competitors.

Beau finished second overall in the 125cc B grade class yesterday after notching a fourth overall finish in the 250cc B grade section on Saturday.

Samuel finished sixth in the 65cc C grade class after winning one of his races.

Primmer said the junior titles attracted an abundance of high-calibre riders.

“It was a good standard of racing right down to the 50s,” he said.
