With Round 3 of the Airoh Gippsland MX Championships done and dusted, the leader points are definitely getting a work out as the points change from round to round.
The last round held at Wonthaggi over the weekend of the 28th and 29th April proved to be a thriller, with great track conditions and high entries!
With the generous support from the amazing sponsors, the prizes handed out at riders briefing always prove a great hit with all competitors.
Airoh Helmets, Alpinestars neck braces and body armour as well as Motorex Oils are given out at each round including $100 vouchers to winners of selected classes.
The Gippsland Regions are all about giving back to the riders so to top it off over $200 worth of tools are randomly given away each day.
Racing is always fierce over the course of the weekend with prize money up for grabs at the end of the year for senior classes.
“Our race schedule is full both days as we offer many classes and also different disciplines including the quads to attend the events giving the spectators lots of excitement to watch out on the track.

“It’s also great to see riders coming back out of the wood work to join in the racing and have some fun” stated chairperson Brad West.
