In support of breast cancer research, the round was themed pink with some riders even painting their bikes in support.

After setting the pace all season, local rider Cameron Stronach continued to dominate the superbike division, winning the first race ahead of fellow locals Ralph Mammoliti and Adam Senior to give him the championship.

He went on to win the next two races again in front of Mammoliti and Senior.

With three thirds on the day, Senior was awarded superbike runner-up while Mark Schnierer was third.

In B grade, Shane Martin was already assured of the title, but after the day’s racing it was Marc Roissetter who came second and Colin Cameron third, while in C grade, Joel Beard took the title from Steve Chittendon and Asher Brolsma.

In the supersport division, local Aaiden Coote had been the one to beat all season and he spent the day going head-to-head with fellow local Leigh Boujos, but Coote prevailed on all three races to win the championship ahead of Boujos and Nigel Lloyd.

It was a controversial day of racing in the superstock division, with a protest causing a delay in the results.

But it has since been announced that Thyron Van Vuuren is the State champion, followed by Tim Boujos and Graeme Romano.

In the 125GP, Tom Hatton had already secured the title, which meant a crash in the third race gave room for local Sam Clarke to become runner-up ahead of Scott Pettit, while the 250GP went to Senior followed by Troy Johnson and Dave Doughty.

Two outfits were in contention for the sidecar championship but after three wins on the day, brothers Darryn and Neal Walker secured the title from Jero Joyce and Corey Blackman, with Rod and Alix Walker third.
