It was a beautiful day for motorbike riding and spectating on Saturday which helped to attract a good field of riders for the Cobar Auto Club’s flat track event.

The flat track (or dirt track event) was the second round of the Copper City Tri-Series competition.

There were plenty of young nipper riders, with too many for just one class and so the club ran two exhibition classes for the event.

One of the nipper riders, Beau Elder, had a run in with the wall, but he bounced back and it was good to see him back out on the track and riding in the next round.

The results from each of the competitive classes were:

50cc High Powers1st Clay McDonald 125 points, 2nd Blaire Drady 110 and 3rd Mackenzie Eves 100.

65cc 7-9yrsBlake Fairey 119 (Gilgandra), Zach Snudden 116 and Bayley Bruce 96.

The lead changed several times within each round as Blake and Zach challenged each other for first place.

65cc 10-12yrsBella Fullagar 125, Chase Parker 110 and Molly Fairey 100.

85cc 9-11yrsKaeleb Saunders 118, Kinsley Woods 113 (Condobolin) and Gage Walker 102.
