The third installment of the North Privateer Cup took place over the weekend in Queensland, during round nine of the MX Nationals at Echo Valley in Toowoomba.

With no rest for the wicked, the North Cup roared back into action with Kawasaki mounted Daniel McEntee once again taking top honors in the Motul MX1 Class.

With the round marking the second-last stop on the MX Nationals calendar, McEntee raced to 13th overall in the main competition and finishing the round on the top step in the privateer class once again.

KTM-mounted Matthew McEntee took 16-17 results to finish the round in an impressive second in the North Cup standings.

In the Pirelli MX2 class, Newcastle KTM’s Dylan Wills dominated his North Cup competition, racing to fifth in moto one and fourth in moto two to take fourth overall and secure the North Cup honours in the process.

Second place in the MX2 class at Echo Valley was awarded to Yamaha rider Ricky Latimer, while Peter Ferguson (Kawasaki) completed the Pirelli MX2 podium collecting third.

The final round of the North Cup will be hosted at Coolum on the Sunshine Coast and take place alongside the final round of the MX Nationals on 29-30 August.
