The Pirelli MX2 Class rocketed out of the gate at Wonthaggi for the opening round of Penrite ProMX Championship presented by AMX Superstores. After the long awaited return to racing for the class, several championship contenders were eager to stamp their authority on the class and take victory at round one.
In the opening moto it was Pirelli MX2 class rookie Alex Larwood who would lead early aboard his WBR Yamaha, followed closely by Kyle Webster on the Factory Honda racing team machine. Around the half way mark, Webster made the move on Larwood, whilst privater Jai Constantinou fell from third position outside of the top ten. Webster would take the opening moto win, ahead of Larwood in second, Rhys Budd charged through to third on the Yamalube Yamaha, whilst the Serco Yamaha team mates of Jesse Dobson and Nathan Crawford would recover from a bad start to claim fourth and fifth respectively.
Moto two saw Kyle Webster dominate the moto, leading from the first lap and never relinquishing his control on the field. Behind Webster, the Serco Yamaha team mates of Crawford and Dobson would work their way through the field to second and third respectively. Alex Larwood would finish fourth with Victorian privateer Jai Constantinou with a career best fifth moto finish.
The Pirelli MX2 class overall win would go to Kyle Webster with 1-1 moto scores, with Alex Larwood in second and Nathan Crawford in third.
