Six Pro Stock Motorcycle competitors gave fans of two-wheeled racing action plenty to cheer about this past weekend, despite the NDRC round of racing at Sydney Dragway raining out.
An announcement about when the race will be rescheduled is expected soon.
The Pro Stock bikes did not disappoint.
Although it was a rough start for the title leader in the first pass for the bracket with Scott White unable to record a round one time after shutting down on the start line and not being allowed to refire. Ryan Learmonth and Jason Lee were up next, with Lee red lighting and Learmonth recording the win with a 7.347/290.56kph pass. Tony Frost (7.333/288.91kph) and Luke Crowley (7.242/300.16kph) took the remaining wins for round one, over Locky Ireland and Daniel Rabnott respectively.
In round two Scott White was this time able to get down the track with a 7.912/280.33kph pass, but it wasn’t enough to take the win with Ryan Learmonth instead turning on the win light with a 7.330/288.24kph effort. Frost (7.539/286.20kph) then took another win over a red-lighting Rabnott (7.516/281.02kph), before Lee enjoyed a solo with a 7.696/283.77kph result. Crowley (7.217/301.52kph) and Ireland (8.388/249.73kph) then faced off, with Crowley emerging as the victor.
In the finals, Ireland ran a solo D-Final pass but was unable to keep it under power, crossing the line in 8.250 seconds at 256.83kph. White and Rabnott faced off in the C Final with a close race seeing White take the win with a 7.330/289.49kph run over Rabnott’s 7.366/286.27kph. Lee then ran a solo in the B-Final, recording a 7.456 second pass.
It was then time for the A-Final, with Crowley (7.124/302.59kph) pitted against Learmonth (7.317/289.32kph) and ultimately taking the victory.
“That is amazing (the ET) for these conditions. It has been a really tough day and we haven’t really been on top of it, but we have just been sneaking up little bit by little bit and obviously we got the job done,” Crowley said. “It was a great race; I could see Ryan in the corner of my helmet pretty much the whole way so he couldn’t have been too far back!”
