Had a crack
« on: October 20, 2014, 09:27:53 AM »
A couple of the Qld VMX sidecarcrossers had a crack at the Bulk Nutrients Elite Sidecar title held at Horsham over the weekend as they were on their way to the Murray Williams cup at Murry Bridge next weekend.
No.270 Matt Maloney and No.277 Dave Mattock took their rumbling XS650 based EMLs to the first National sidecar title to be held in 20yrs and took on the moderns in a hit out before next weeks cup.
Neither of them had their regular passengers and that probably told in their results with both finishing down the field a bit in 8th and 10th or there abouts and found the modern lightweights not only far more nimble but surprisingly quick out of the gate. The track was set for the moderns as well with a wicked rhythm section that is always hard on the oldies.
The top three from this event are now eligible to go to Europe and represent Australia if they so desire and will receive the Duke of Edinburgh award.
This years winners were the Anthony bros from Vic on their Zable powered outfit followed by SAs Brooks bros and the father and son team of Brett and Hamish Dobie 3rd. Just back from Europe, the team of John Robinson and Brian Anthony had elec problems and DNF race 1, however they recovered and finished 4th overall.

Up date from Murray Williams Cup meet at Murray Bridge over last weekend.
Matt Malloney rode both Pre75 on his Wasp XS and Pre85 on his EML XS and cleaned up with 6 wins from 6 starts.
Dave Mattock & I finished with a second a 3rd & a 4th in Pre85 on Daves Pre85 EML XS for 3rd o/all including getting stuck on the gate in the last heat and coming from 100yds last and with a broken front shock. Also cleaned up Shelpi when passing on the inside of a tight r/hand hair pin at the end of the very fast back straight. SO SORRY MATE.
