THE sound of engines revving filled the air as the best motocross riders from around the state converged on the Coastal Motorcycle Club recently.

The Henderson based club hosted the first WAMX State Junior and Senior Motocross Championship round on April 27 and 28.

Participants flocked to the start of a new competition with gates in the converted MX1 and MX2 classes almost full and big numbers in other categories.

The calibre of competition did not disappoint, with rough sand sections and the start of a new year creating two days full of entertaining racing.

Amongst the winners in the senior competitions were Chris Bosnakis (quad), Jacob Whately (amateur), Ben Shingler (veteran), Trevor Unstead (masters 50+), Hannah Bagnall (women) and Regan Duffy (MX2 and MX1).

Round 2 for the seniors will continue at Henley Park, Byford on May 19.
