Round 1 - Hamilton


Round 1 was held on Sunday 13th Sept at the Hamilton “Spring Meeting” in great early season spring weather. We had a great turnout (25 riders) which meant we had semi-finals for the first time ever and the competition was hot to make it through (3 riders sitting on 16th= at the end of the moto’s and only one can make it in!). This round was also the 1st “Teams” event where we have 4 teams competing (on paper only of course !!!) for the end of season trophy and it looks like the inter team rivalry is going to make for some great banter during the season.

I would like to thank the Hamilton club & their sponsor “SUB-A-ROO Auto Spares” for putting up the purse for this round. A big Thankyou must also go out to Demon Energy Drinks who supplied some pre-race energy to get the riders “up” to speed.

Congratulations to our 1st podium winners of the season.
1st Steve Schimanski, 2nd Paul Luttrell, 3rd Richie McLachlan.
Consolation final winner Joe Calkin.

We had a new rider this round who hasn’t raced for 22 years, welcome to the series Kevin, it was good to see the butterflies kept you upright and I hope to see you back for more next time. There was also a couple who didn’t take part last season (Mooney & Craig Poynter) so welcome back to you two, it was good to see that you haven’t forgotten how to ride a bikeFinal - 1st straightRound 1 - Hamilton - BACK IN THE DAY BMXFinal - exit of 1st corner
