GUNNEDAH clinched the tri-series competition against Taree and Kempsey motorcyle cycle clubs following the round held at the Old Bar Roadside Circuit.
Kempsey finished second.
Around 70 races were decided in sweltering conditions, although rider entries and spectators numbers were impacted by Kempsey’s Akubra Classic held the following day.
Australian champion Marty McNamara rode for Gunnedah before heading to the Akubra meeting. While he met with some challenges from the other competitors, getting the hole shots and clocking quick lap times gained him race and class wins.
The results also show repeat podium finishes, not only for McNamara, but for Gunnedah father and son, Anthony and Jordan Dall.
Of additional interest on the day was the sidecar, with rider Jim Jobling and passenger Ben Gardner. While some mechanical issues had the pair stationed in the pits for some time, when out on the track, they entertained spectators with skillful handling of their machine. The Taree club looks forward to Jobling and Gardner (and a number of other sidecars) contesting twilight meeting in mid-January.
As well as the regular members of the three clubs, two families travelled from the Gold Coast to take part in the meeting – one raced with Taree and the other with Gunnedah.
