WA Yamaha Junior Racing Team Easter MX Raid


Posted: Friday, 21st April, 2017 : 9:13 AM - - 577 Reads




There was no time for the Easter bunny last weekend, as the Wellard/GYTR/Yamaha Junior Racing Team converged on the Ken Marshal circuit six hours East of Perth in Kalgoorlie for the first round of the WA Motocross championship.

Fine weather and temperatures in the low 30’s was the forecast and the hard working team at the Goldfields Motorcycle Club prepared a good circuit like normal.

After an eight month layoff with injury Mat Fabry (Five Star Yamaha), has been getting as much seat time as possible trying to make up for lost time. He has already criss-crossed the country as he competed at the MX Nationals in Victoria before returning for duel class duties on his YZ125 and potent YZ250F in Kalgoorlie.

With each race, Fabry dropped his lap times as he began to learn the new layout of the circuit which has changed since he was there last. By days end he captured the outright win in the 125cc division and was second in the 250 four stoke class.

“I have been away from the full-on intensity of racing for a long time now and it was great to get back into it. I worked hard on riding smooth and improving every lap as my bike fitness is way down at the moment and I needed to manage every race for the entire day. I felt like I could have ridden faster but the team has been telling me to be patient and not to rush trying to get back to my peak, so that is what I did,” Fabry explained.

“Both my bikes ran flawlessly all day and it’s great to be back racing again. I was happy to walk away from my first race with a win and a second place knowing that things will only get better from here.

“I want to say how thankful I am to have all the support behind me as it certainly eases the pressure and to have their support during my injury means a lot,” Fabry ended.


Jake Turner showing promise on the YZ85.
 
After being elevated from a satellite rider in 2017, Jake Turner (Mandurah City Yamaha) has moved into the 85cc Big Wheel class and is the little fish in the big pond. Turner put in three good moto’s for the day and if not for a flat tyre in the final, he would have garnered more points.

“My tyre went flat on the start line and we pumped it up but it slowly went down over the course of the race until I washed out on the up ramp of a jump and I crashed. I wasn’t hurt but I did lose a few spots which was disappointing.

“I was enjoying the new class and each race was getting closer to the lead pack which was encouraging. I’ll work on my speed for the next round at Bunbury,” he ended.


Kaj Radcliffe in action at Kalgoolie
 
Also riding an 85cc Big Wheel Kaj Radcliffe (Cully’s Yamaha) was at his first meeting with the team after moving to Yamaha this season. Based in Carnarvon 1000 kilometres north of Perth means a lot of travel for the youngster but he and his family are dedicated to not let distance beat them. With a similar speed to his team mate and it also being his first year on the bigger bike Radcliffe has taken to the YZ like a duck to water.

“I really enjoy riding the YZ85 as I am not a big guy and it suits me well. I know my speed will pick up as the season progresses and I really want to show the team I belong,” Radcliffe had to say.

“Like all first meetings, it is about seeing where you fit so you can make adjustments to improve. Mat progressed at a huge rate today from the morning to the afternoon and makes you wonder where he could have been with a good pre-season,” Commented team manager Peter Strickland.

“Both Jake and Kaj are now the small fish in the big pond after moving up to the Big Wheel class but performed well without doubt. It will take them a little while before they work out they belong up front but it will come for sure. I am happy with Kaj’s first ride for the team as he might have been under a little pressure to perform well but he handled it well.

“We move onto the deep sand of Bunbury for the next round which shows no mercy to riders or bikes but with the good support we provide all our guys will lift for the occasion," Strickland concluded.
