Justin Brayton – “My Honda 450 was amazing, everything was working well and I felt settled all day. The team worked well together which is a credit to our Team Manager Jay Foreman as the team is made up of people from all over Australia and the world.”

Jesse Dobson – “I felt my day was going well. I am disappointed I made so many mistakes in the final as I genuinely thought I was riding well. I have taken a lot away from this weekend and will work hard going into round 2 on minimising my mistakes over 20 laps.”

Gavin Faith – “The final was going well; I got the holeshot and felt comfortable. I pushed hard in the opening laps and exhausted myself. It’s been 5 months since I last raced and I didn’t compose myself and it most certainly affected my overall result. That said, I am happy to walk away with a second place and take the weekends lessons into round 2.”

Jay Foreman (Team Manager) – “Justin was brilliant all day. Jesse was riding well and Gavin put in a solid performance. We have many areas we can improve on and we have three weeks to work on them. I am thankful for the efforts each team member made; it makes my job so much easier. It’s going to be a busy three weeks.”
