GMR Motorex KTM racers contested all class finals today at the Australian Junior Nationals as the Championship ramped up on day four of the event.

Scott Mann took to the track first for the team in the 14-15 years 85cc class for the second of five finals, after scoring a third place in yesterday’s racing. Scott rode hard to secure another 3rd place after a difficult start and now leads the Championship chase.

Reece Rayner was next up in the 9-11 years 65cc class for his first final, scoring a well earned second place despite a flat front tyre.

Scott Mann was up again just a few races later in the 13-14 years 125-150cc class, so quickly in fact he missed the sighting lap prior to the race. Despite this, Scott scored the race win in the first of three finals.

Dylan Long was then on the gate for the second of five finals in the 15 years 125-150cc class. After scoring a win in the first final, Dylan collected a third place in the second race after a poor start. The result still holds his lead on the points tally by the narrowest of margins.

Reece Rayner was back out on the track next in the 9-11 years 85cc class. Reece was confident of a top result in this class but was hit by a fellow competitor on the start straight. Reece was forced to come to a near complete stop to save a major incident, relegating him to the tail of the pack. Reece knuckled down and raced hard to collected 10th place.

In the 15 years 250F category, Dylan Long struggled off the start which saw him having to find creative lines to make his way with pace through the field. Dylan clawed back to 8th position in the first of three finals for this class.

In summary, we have Scott Mann leading both his 14-15 years 85cc and 13-14 years 125-150cc classes, Reece Rayner is in second for the 9-11 years 65cc and Dylan Long holds the lead in the 15 years 125-150cc class.

We have yet another hectic day of racing tomorrow and I look forward to reporting to you all again.
