Locals figure prominently
SEVERAL Coffs Harbour Motorcycle Club members figured prominently in the results from the summer dirt track challenge held at the Coffs Harbour motorcycle complex on Sunday.
A field of 89 riders travelled from as far north as Brisbane, Ipswich and Maryborough as well as south to Kurri Kurri and Taree and west to Tamworth and Gunnedah.
For most of the riders, this is the first open event of the year on the dirt track calendar giving them the chance to test new bikes or to start in a new age group or on a bigger bike.
Zac Anlezark and Daniel Brighton both rode well in the 50cc four to under seven years demonstration class while Braydon Brighton rode strongly in the 50cc seven-under nine years division two class.
In the 85cc 13-16 years, Dylan Hines finished second in a strong field with Reece Bynge third.
Hugh Skidmore was second in the 80-160cc four stroke 11-under 16 class.
In the 125/250cc four stroke class, Koby Wooderson won against some top riders.
Craig Mallett won the 250cc class with Paul Taylor third while Don Thornton, Tony Capararo and Gary Ragoni took the trifecta in the pre-1985 class.
