Husqvarna-mounted contender Jesse Dobson was awarded the Andrew McFarlane Top Privateer award at Coolum’s Pirelli MX Nationals finale last weekend, while Dylan Wills received the Jono Porter Top Privateer accolade in the MX2 category.

Dobson was strong challenger all season long, making Superpole on numerous occasions while being a regular inside the top five. A pair of solid P5 moto scores at Coolum’s 10th round on Sunday ultimately saw him seal eighth in the championship standings.

“In the end, I’m really happy with the pace I had all weekend, and although I believe I had the potential to finish the season with a better result, I’m happy to have been consistent with two fifth places on Sunday,” Dobson explained.

“It’s an honour getting the Andrew Mcfarlane Top Privateer award, it’s been a tough year and I can’t thank everyone enough that has helped me and supported me along the way.”

Davey Motorsports KTM’s Wills wound up sixth in the MX2 standings, scoring a podium finish at Moree’s eighth round of the series.
