Round 4 - Te Awamutu

Round 4 was held on Sunday 24th January at the Te Awamutu Grand Prix meeting. We had 24 riders take part which was one short of having semi-finals so this made it 3 full gates and made it pretty competitive to make the Top 8. We had 7 newbies to the series this time so we have now had 41 different riders take part in the series (if everybody turned up on the same day we’d have to have Quarter Finals !!!!!!!!!!!!!). One of these “newbies” unfortunately had a crash in the 4th moto and may be out for a little while, hope you get well soon Scott and back on the bike.

I would like to thank the Te Awamutu club & their sponsor Osbournes Transport for putting up the purse for this round.

The final was another fast lap with no drama which is always good to see (we all have to work on Monday). Congratulations to this rounds podium winners: 1st Steve Schimanski, 2nd Paul Luttrell & 3rd Craig Hutchinson. That makes 3 wins to Steve & 1 to Richie, is there anyone who can break their hold on the money ? We also had another consolation final this time and once again it was taken out by Jason “Queen B” Powrie, well done.

Check below to see where you sit after the 4th round. There’s been a slight shuffle around at the top of the table with Mooney still holding on to the top spot, can anybody catch him ?? We have also had another switch around on the Team points table with the JAFA’s taking back 2nd place from the Mischief’s (it pays to have 3 riders on the track !)

We have a quick turnaround to Round 5 which is next weekend at Papakura (Sun 31st Jan) so polish the bikes, put plasters on any scratches and get ready for our 1st trip over the Bombays.
