ďI got the hole shot in my first moto and took the win, but it wasnít an easy race,Ē said Lancaster.
ďIím not used to sandy terrain which gave Chad McKay my main competitor a real advantage, as heís accustomed to these conditions.
"Chad and also Luke Gainsford really kept on my tail throughout the first race.
ďIn my second moto I hole shot again, but couldnít hold off Chad McKay who took me on the first lap.
"I stayed on his heels towards the end, but he had better lines, and a good bike set up for the sandy conditions, so I finished in second.
ďI hole shot again in the final moto and was passed by Luke Gainsford on the first lap.
"I followed him for one lap or so, and then made a pass to pull away for the lead.
"Chad McKay also took over Luke to finish in second proving he was up for the challenge, and will likely be my toughest competitor for the WA State Series.
ĎThe track condition at Coastals are nothing compared to what Iím used to riding on up north at Tom Price where I live, so Iíll need to get more sand prep under my belt to ensure next time it isnít so much of a challenge.
ďOverall my consistency paid off to give me the overall win, which is great for the opening round of a six round championship.
"There are another two sandy tracks on the calendar at Wanneroo and Bunbury, so I will ensure Iím better prepared for those rounds with bike set up to handle the sand.
ďThe next round is in four weeks at Busselton, and thatís hard packed which will be much more suited to my riding style.
ďItís been a great start to the year for me with four wins from four races.
"Iíve now claimed a win at Tumbulgum Farm, Newman Memorial, Tri State Series Rnd 1 and now WA State Series Rnd 1Ē.
