Places were decided at the final round of KTM SEQJMX for Saturday riders at Coolum Pines. This Sunday will see the final places decided at Tivoli Raceway.
For round 4 a change of venue was needed due to Echo Valley at Toowoomba being damaged due to severe weather conditions to allow riders to get their chance to challenge for final points. 315 riders and 65 of those riders backed up in two classes to compete on the sand track.
Congratulations to all riders that competed in this series, we witnessed great battles on the track and friends made playing, laughing in the pits and supporting each other in their racing. The 50cc Demonstration class was well supported with 30 riders at most rounds having a go, Hayden Downie took the series win in the 50cc auto class, Madi SImpson winning the 65cc 7-9 C grade, Luke Constantine in 65cc 7-9 B grade and Billy Wadwell in the 65cc 7-9 A grade. Jasmine Stagg came away winning the 65cc 10-11 C grade, Jett Holyhead for the 65cc 10-11 B grade and Jet Alsop in the 65cc 10-11 A grade class. Mini Lites 9-11 C grade saw Lochie O’Loan take the win, Cameron Madden in the Mini Lites 9-11 B grade and Jet Alsop taking out the Mini Lites 9-11 A grade also. For the dads, it was Luke Wolfe winning the Veterans and Brooke Williams taking home the trophy in the Womens class.
Jet Alsop topped his awesome year off by taking home the highest pointed KTM rider for the series – unbeatable with 12 out of 12 wins on his 65cc KTM machine.
A huge thank you to all volunteers that have made this series so successful. On Saturday afternoon, after a good day of racing, where the riders had a great time, some were waiting for final results, others were playing ball sports or other games like they all came from one big family when the Club water pump broke down. The pump had a motor problem that could not be fixed on the weekend and the Sunday day of racing looked in trouble. In no time we had men from four different clubs working together. These guys went off site, picked up another pump, got it back to the dam, connected it up and soon had water pumping again. This took 5 hours to get the pump replaced and working. To see all these men from different clubs working together so well as a team is why this series is so good.
Whether it is the kids, parents, club workers, senior riders, everyone is looking out for each other and working together as one. It is something that has been missing from the sport and it is back and what the SEQJMX series is all about.
