Rhys Carter Race Report

Event: Woodville GP

Class: Mx1

Practice/Qualifying: 7th
Woodville GP is a one off race each year and the only time any body gets to ride it is at the event so it is a even playing field when go there to race. I felt pretty good in practice but could quite get a clean lap in for a quick one and only managed 7th place but with times been close it was looking good.

Moto 1: 3rd
I got a wicked jump out of the gate and come around the first turn in 3rd place but then quickly moved into 2nd in the opening lap. I stuck behind the leader for a few laps before getting bad arm pump losing touch of the leader. I made a few mistakes and one of the overseas riders got pass me on the final lap pushing me back to 3rd.

Moto 2: 6th
This race was a 5 lap sprint race and I again got a awesome jump but then got slammed coming into the first turn pushing me out into the bunting putting me in the back of the pack. I was sitting around 15th on the start of the first lap so I had to put my head down and made some passes. By the end of the moto I had worked my way into 6th onto the tail of 5th.

Moto 3: 5th
I got another good jump out of the gate but again another rider come from the outside of me clipping my front wheel making me lose a lot of positions. I was just inside the top 10 and worked my way into 5th by the end.

Overall: 4th
It was a good day for me at woodville I normally struggle on this track and i felt comfortable all day which for me is promising. My starts were good just need to eliminate a couple things and i will be up front battling for wins.
