ROUND 4 2022 AGV HELMETS WA STATE ROAD RACING CHAMPIONSHIPS
Sunday 7th August and CARCO.com.au Raceway(formally Wanneroo Raceway)was the setting for the fourth round of the AGV Helmets Australia WA State Road Racing Championships. The day started off wet but, despite the forecast of showers for most of the day, by 10.00am the rain was gone,and the remainder of the day was run in sunny but cool conditions.
For this round the Historic Club Golden Era boys came to play sponsored by Retro Moto Co and they put on some excellent racing across the entire field. Josh Mathers (JSM Construction Yamaha FZR1000) made it a clean sweep of the three races. Leigh Boujos (Gary McIntyre Honda RC30) took out three second places and Tony Hynes (Gelorup Motorcycle Repairs Suzuki GSXR750) scored two fourth and a third place for third overall. Sammy Lloyd–Cox(4ward Fabrications Honda CBR 250RR MC) was the best of the ‘Golden Era Lites with two wins and a third place.It was the man who finished in second place in each race that caught my eye. Leigh Boujos hasn’t raced motorcycles for three years but jumped at the chance to get aboard Gary McIntyre’s immaculate Honda RC30. He did approximately 10 laps the previous Saturday at the MCRC Tuning Day and elected to race the round. He may not have won any of the three races but he made sure Mathers knew he was there.
In the Frenken Group B Grade Series it was Bronson Pickett (OTR Tyres Yamaha R1) who continued on his merry way with his fourth straight win in the series. Second on the day was Jake Wilson(Heart of Gold Dance Company Yamaha R1) with Paul Joshua(Dave the 125 Wizard Yamaha R6) filling the minor podium place. After four rounds Pickett has a perfect score of 100 points
