Record Breaking Boxing Day Bonanza At Whanganui

Record Breaking Boxing Day Bonanza At Whanganui

Record breaking is most certainly one way to describe, the latest Boxing Day bonanza at the Cemetery Circuit Races.

In addition to vaulting to a hat-trick of victories including retaining the Robert Holden Memorial feature race title, Mitch Rees went under his own existing outright lap record, setting a new benchmark of 48.001 seconds.

Former National Superstock 600 Championship front-runner Shane Richardson proved the cream of the Supersport fraternity, powering to race wins times two.

Richardson third in the 10-lap feature race behind Rees (Mitch) and Tony Rees joined the lap record breakers group, pocketing the new top middleweight class lap, which now stands at 48.520 seconds.

Another on lap record breaking form on route to Supersport 300 category wins was Jesse Stroud, son of ex World Superbike Championship, TT Races competitor Andrew Stroud.

UK racers wise, CC Races debutant Davey Todd mopped up four top five finishes, with the highlight been victory from the opening Super Moto race.

This triumph makes Todd just the fourth solo UK rider since 2014, to emerge victorious at the Southern Hemisphere’s Isle of Man.

Sponsor, machine supplier Richie Dibben got the better of Todd for Super Moto race 2 honours whilst racers not showcased yet, attaining street race wins at Whanganui were as follows:

Mark Smith/Isaac Taylor (Classic Sidecars Race 1), Bruce Roberts/Kendal Dunlop (Classic Sidecars New Zealand TT), Karl Hooper (Super Twins Race 1, Pre 89 Senior Race 1), Nick Kampenhout (Super Twins Race 2).

Sloan Frost (Formula Sport Senior Races 1&2), Jeff Croot (Formula Sport Junior Races 1&2), Barry Smith/Stu Dawe (Present Era Sidecars Race 1), Adam Unsworth/Bryce Rose (Present Era Sidecars Race 2).

Tyler Lincoln (Pre 89 Senior Race 2), Jordan Leslie (Pre 95 Junior Races 1&2), Perry Lett (Pre 95 Senior Races 1&2), Dean Bentley (Pre 89 Junior Races 1&2).
