Emerald young gun dominates juniors at 6 Mile Track
THE Rockhampton and District Motocross Club held its fourth round club meet last Sunday and the racing saw the welcome return of local talented rider Zac Newsome to the 6 Mile track.
Newsome didn't perform as well as he would have liked at the Queensland State Titles held at 6 Mile over Easter and hasn't been seen on the bike since.
Newsome sets high expectations for himself, so there's speculation he's been absent from the CQ Series, a Rocky club meet and the MX Nationals at Coolum last month to get himself and his bike 100% right.
Whatever the case, Newsome was back in form, winning the Senior Lites (250cc).
Meanwhile, another talented local rider, Brendan Swaffield, swept all before him in the Opens (450cc) winning all three of his races and dominating the class.
In C Grade, there were 40 riders on the grid to contest the Clubman Lites (250cc) and the Clubman Opens (450cc and up). Rocky rider Travis Barr won the Lites, while visiting rider from Ayr, Steve Williams took out the Opens.
But the real highlight was young Levi Rogers, 11. Already a Team Yamaha Australia sponsored junior rider, Rogers won all three of his races in the 85cc, 9-12 years class.
