Central Highlands Motox Interclub series, 2017.

Rd3 - Emerald Qld.

Tyson Naish/Emerald – Competes in the unlimited and clubman open class

and wins.

Round 3 of the Central Highlands Moto X Series was held at the Mosquito

Creek moto X track on the outskirts of Emerald this weekend.

Competitors were greeted with brisk mornings and then days that turned

in perfect conditions for riding, not great for this photographer as I prefer a

little cloud in the background when taking pictures of the riders against the

sky, alas !

Mitchell Moore – Emerald rider 

The other pet hate is when they water the track, as this is from a

photographers perspective and not a writer, it not only dampens the track

but dampens the action that flying dust can contribute to action shots.

Sorry I digress, I forgot I was a writer and not just the photographer capturing

the local event

So to that end, the usual culprits across the classes excelled as expected and

further consolidated their leads in the Interclub series, with only 2 rounds left

in the series, that being Dysart in Sept and Middlemount one week later on

Saturday and Sunday 30th and 1st respectively.

Junior Competitor – Tomas Powell- Blackwater rider.


One of the stand out performers again was Tomas Powell a young rider from

Blackwater who is yet to taste defeat after three rounds in the 85cc 12-15yrs

where he has only  finished  first.

He also competes in the Jnr Lites and is leading the interclub series comfortably.

I think we can all agree as a writer I make a good photographer, hopefully the

words will not be as arduous in the future, but I trust you like the photographs as

I enjoyed taking them.




Competitors vie for the lead into the first corner in senior and clubman open class.



Hectic start for the 65cc class.

Age hasn’t stopped the Veterans and Ladies from flying high.

C15 – Glen Corney.
