He was initially challenged by fellow local rider Adam Senior until he came off the track, leaving second place open for Lubomir Safranek, followed by Anthony McFadden in third.

Stronach then took out the second race, with Senior recording his first points for the series, coming second ahead of Mark Schnierer, but it was Senior who won the third race for the day, with Stronach second.

‘I was determined to take the win in race three to try to minimise the gap in championship points after my crash,’ Senior said. ‘I put my head down, rode hard and was able to pull a gap on second place.’

Senior also competed in the 250GP, coming second in the first two races to Queensland’s Brad Gross and third in the final race, while in the 125GP, Tom Hatton won the first two races, with local lad Sam Clarke winning the third.

In the supersport championship, Nigel Lloyd, Aaiden Coote and Leigh Boujos dominated the front of the field in all three races, with Coote taking two wins and Lloyd the other, while in the superstock division, Tim Boujos took the clean sweep from Graeme Romano and Matt Steele.

Other winners included Shane Martin in B grade; the Walker brothers, Neal and Darryn, who won all three sidecar races; Andrew Read, who won two of the clubman 600 races and Tony Keogh the other; and Chris Brown, who took out two of the clubman 1000 and Kurt Macomber the third.
