GMR Motorex KTM continue podium success at Sunshine State Series

27-05-10

Reece Rayner, Scott Mann and Jay Wilson all took to the track at round six of the Sunshine State Series held at Roma, QLD on 22 and 23 May 2010, standing on the podium in all five classes contested over the weekend.  The results significantly improved each riders’ series standings as they head into round seven in just two weeks time.

Young up and comer Reece Rayner contested both the 9-u12 years 65cc and Mini-Lites classes on Saturday’s program. “I am really happy with my speed at the moment on both bikes,” said Rayner.  “Except for one crash on the 85 where I finished 10th, all of my other race results were top threes. I am now second overall in the series on both bikes which is awesome.”

Scott Mann and Jay Wilson hit the track on Sunday’s program, with Mann contesting two classes, “I took 2-1-1 on the 85 at Roma,” said Mann.  “In race one I was coming through the pack and about to make a pass for the lead but high-sided through a mud patch so second was a pretty good result in the end.  I won the next two races to take the win for the day.

“In the Lites I had a pretty good day. I made just a couple of small mistakes, but the highlight for me was the final race where I had to come through the pack after a bad start and fight my way up to second.  My results gave me third for the day and I was the first two-stroke as I was on my KTM 150SX up against four-strokes.

“I am now running first overall on the 85 and second overall in the series in the 13-14 years  Lites.”

Current World 85cc Motocross Champion Jay Wilson continues his good form on the larger bike on board his KTM 250SX-F, “I was happy with my results at Roma,” said Wilson.  “I picked up 1-2-1 results which gave me the win for the day and keeps me in the lead for the series.

“I have been working hard on my training and it is really paying off. I have some big race meets coming up including the next round of the Shell Series at Tivoli and the second round of the NSW Motocross Titles which I am leading in two classes, so it’s important I stay on my game.”

“Reece, Scott and Jay are performing extremely well in the series and each of them are running top three in all five classes we are contesting,” said Team Manager Glenn Macdonald.  “We will be doing some testing and fine tuning in the coming days to make sure we stay on top of things and ensure each rider is dialed to bring the series to a close.”
