GMR Motorex KTM racer Scott Mann wins round two of QLD Motocross Championships

24-04-10

Round two of the QLD Motocross Championships took place at Dysart on 10 & 11 April 2010 and it was GMR Motorex KM racer Scott Mann who took round honours in the Mini Lites, catapulting him to the lead in the Championship points chase.

“I am much happier with my results this weekend, particularly on the 85cc. I am now in the points lead for the title so I just need to keep up the momentum in the final round at Roma,’ said Mann  “I picked up a 4th on the 150 and I have moved from 8th in the Championship on the 150 up to 6th, so with another good round I hope to move up the points board further.”

Meanwhile, team mate Reece Rayner took a tumble in race one of the 65cc class, whilst leading.

“This weekend I placed 17-4-4 on the 65 for 7th on the day and 4-4-4 on the 85. I had a great ride on the 85 this weekend as I was more consistent than at round one and I picked up 4th for the round, which keeps me in 4th for the Championship.

“I had good starts in all my races and I was even the only 65cc tripling into the woops but still couldn't get a podium finish. I was bummed with race one of the 85, I was leading the first race but on the second last lap I had a big crash. I was stuck under the bike and could only manage to get up to 17th.  I also picked up holeshots in the last two races against stiff competition.
 
Team manager Glenn Macdonald was pleased with the results “Both boys are putting in a top effort and I am keen to see how this championship shapes up at the conclusion of the final round at Roma in a few weeks time.
