“The Pirelli MX Nationals is a very important event for not only the club, but also for the region. We of course have a number of riders competing from Australia such as two time defending MX1 champion and current red plate holder Dean Ferris, but also international competitors from New Zealand such as Hamish Harwood, Kane Lamont and Rhys Carter which adds that extra level of depth to the racing and is fantastic for our series and for the local fans who are planning on coming out to watch the races this weekend.”

So, who will finish on top when gates drop this coming Sunday? Will it be the 2017 stars or will the local heroes dominate once again?

2016 and 2017 Thor MX1 champion Dean Ferris won an exceptional 17 races throughout the 2017 season, andwill come into Round 5 this weekend holding the red plate after a flawless first four rounds, but Mitch Evans won’t be letting the CDR Yamaha rider out of his sights, while Kirk Gibbs looks extremely fit and comfortable on board his factory KTM machine but suffered from crashes at Wonthaggi.

The depth of talent isn’t limited to the MX1 class, this year MX2 has a world class level of skilled talent spread across the gate with the likes of 2017 MX2 runner up Wilson Todd, 2016 MX2 runner up Nathan Crawford and the international talent of Hamish Harwood.
