An intense day of racing in the Yamaha Amateur Cup feature class saw KTM racer Josh Kilvington take the overall honours at Conondale’s Green Park.
Kilvington and fellow KTM pilot Ryan Kenney each took a race win on a day that threw up unpredictable results, while the day’s podium was filled by Kilvington, Lachlan Holroyd, (KTM) and Kenney.
Despite only taking over the lead halfway through the opening race, Kenney stretched out an impressive 19-second lead over Darcy Cavanagh (KTM), Holroyd, Kilvington, and Jack McNeice (Suzuki) by the time he took the checkered flag.
In the second moto Kilvington overcame a top five start to take the lead on the penultimate lap from Holroyd, with Jesse Bishop (Yamaha) in third, Mitchell Dark (Husqvarna) and McNeice rounded out the top five.
The 2018 Pirelli MX Nationals will recommence at Ranch MX, NSW, for the second double-header event, on 14-15 July.
