Crough meets stiff opposition



AFTER a fairly wet week and a bit of sun on Saturday, the track was in excellent condition for Round 3 of Coffs Motorcycle Club's dirt track racing on Sunday.

A total of 38 riders contested the events which featured close racing creating plenty of excitement for sepctators.

Racing in the open event was excellent to watch with new comer Glen Oram from Kempsey proving hard competition for local Phil Crough.

Phil eventually took out first place with Glen finishing a close second.

The 85cc Big Wheel event was equally as competitive with Reece Bynge and Toby Sheridan fighting for first place.

Congratulations also to Dominic Borsato who took third in this event in his first attempt at dirt track.

Coffs Harbour Motorcycle Club thank AH Plant Hire and BP South for their assistance.

They also thank valued members who have worked extremely hard with the major adjustments to the motocross track and also the work done on the dirt track.

The club's next event will be round four of the motocross series on Sunday.

The motocross track has had plenty of work carried out over the past three weekends with additional jumps, stutters and burms so be prepared for more great racing on our improved surface.
