Women give club a boost
Female competitors from Southern Capes Motocross Club gave their male counterparts a run for their money at the Interclub Series last Sunday.
The Busselton club hosted the event, which saw participants from Albany, Denmark, Manjimup, Collie and Bunbury take to the track.
Southern Capes Motocross Club president Gary “Chalky” Spiers said the women did the club proud.
“Kaylee Brown, who is only 13, was out there competing on a 50cc Honda, while Shanelle Carn came third and Chelsea Blakers, who has come to us from Manjimup, won the ladies’ class,” he said.
“We’re fortunate to have a lot of talented females in the club. They may not be huge in terms of numbers but they are very competitive in their class.”
About 200 riders converged on the Jindong circuit for the Interclub Series, with Luke Davies, who races for Busselton as his primary club, taking out the pro open class.
Mr Spiers said the family-friendly competition always had a strong focus on youth, the future of the sport.
On Sunday, Southern Capes hosts the Big 4 South West Championship.
“We’re hoping to get 200 competitors and raise some significant funds to put back into our club,” Mr Spiers said.
“It should be a fantastic day of topclass motocross action between the big four clubs of Busselton, Collie, Manjimup and Bunbury.
“We’re also grateful to the City of Busselton for letting us use their grader free of charge for the event.”
