Round 5 - Papakura


Round 5 was held on Sunday 31st January in Papakura at the Auckland Champs meeting. After a bit of arm twisting we managed to come up with 25 riders which meant semi-finals. We had another 6 newbie’s to the series this time so we have now had 47 different riders take part in the series.

I would like to thank the Papakura club for putting up the purse for this round.

It appears that being on the Northern side of the Bombays suited the JAFA’s as 6 of them made it through the semis to the final. Congratulations to this rounds podium finishers: 1st Richie McLachlan, 2nd Steve Schimanski & 3rd Paul Luttrell. That makes 3 wins to Steve & 2 to Richie, is there anyone who can break their hold on the money ? We also had another consolation final this time but with a new winner as “Queen B” made the step up to the A final so congratulations to Paul Morrow for taking out this one.

I have had to have a close look at the Team rules and it appears that there is no rule in place regarding wearing of correct team shirts so there will be no disqualification of a certain Team Captain and his points will count.
