Round 1 2019 ASX Recap – Queensland

4 weeks ago | Words: Supercross Media | Photos: Deluxe Media, JSR Media

The 2019 Australian Supercross Championship kicked off in emphatic fashion inside Brisbane’s Entertainment Centre, with Justin Brayton notching a dominant win in the SX1 Class, and Jacob Hayes placing his Serco Yamaha atop the SX2 podium.

The controllability of weather an indoor arena provides, was a vital theme for round one, with Queensland displaying uncharacteristic rain for most of the day outdoors. Sheltered from the elements was the purpose-built supercross circuit, with race fans witnessing the action all from the comfort of their seats. From the first practices’ gate drop in each class, it was evident who was at the top of their game, with defending champion, Justin Brayton, along with the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy teammates, Luke Clout and Daniel Reardon, in hot form. Similar could be seen in SX2, with Jay Wilson, Chris Blose, and Jacob Hayes all topping the timesheets.

Each category completed two 10-lap main events, and overall scores were calculated based on who achieved the better scores in each singular main event. Hayes would land a 3-1 scorecard for victory, while the defending champ Brayton kept a clean sheet and went 1-1 convincingly.

Justin Brayton: “We had a good night tonight; the Penrite Honda felt great all day and overall we’re pumped – it’s always important to leave round one on a high note. Luckily we had the indoor venue for today – I love the vibe of indoor racing – but of course, because the weather was a little ominous too.”

Rounding out the podium in each class was Aaron Tanti and Chris Blose in SX2, while Dan Reardon and Luke Clout finished up P2 and P3 in SX1.

Round two of the Australian Supercross Championship heads to Gilman Speedway in Port Adelaide next weekend, where hometown hero and last year’s winner Brett Metcalfe will be looking to repeat. Tickets are available from $35.
