TRARALGON’s Lahrra Cloak will be looking to build on her impressive start in the Open class at the 2016 Victorian Supermoto Championship at the State Motorcycle Sports Complex at Broadford this weekend, September 24-25.
Lahrra, who is currently tied on 47 points with Brad Condor, recently competed in the 2016 Stay Upright Australian Supermoto Championships in Mareeba, Queensland in July where she finished second overall in the hotly-contested Women’s class.
“It was a long trip up there. I was pretty sick in the week leading up to it but I got a couple of second-places and third-places so I took out second overall for the weekend,” Lahrra said.
She also competed in the 2016 FIM-ASIA Supermoto Championship in Newcastle, New South Wales on September 3-4 and earned yet another second-overall place in the Womens class.
“I was close to the win but I got a second, a first and a fourth. I got taken out in the first corner of the last race, a race which I really needed to win, so I ended up second overall but I’ve had a pretty good season so far considering I’ve only raced three times this year,” Lahrra added.
On the second round of the 2016 Victorian Supermoto Championship, Lahrra said: “Hopefully, the weather will hold out so we can ride the dirt sections. I’ll try and keep my lead going heading into the last round,” Lahrra said.
“The first round was pretty hot competition with Brad Condor and myself. We ended up with equal points so it should be really good racing this weekend.
Lahrra would like to thank all her sponsors: “Bling51, Morwell Kawasaki, TKD Electrical, Axle Armour, MCR Supamoto, Monza Imports, and my Mum and Dad, and everyone who donated to my GoFundMe donation page.”
On why she enjoys the sports of Supermoto: “I just love the mix of both; the bitumen where it’s nice and fast and smooth. I also have a motocross background so when you put both of those together it’s nice and exciting,” she added.
Round 2 of the 2016 Victorian Supermoto Championship takes place at Broadford’s State Motorcycle Sports Complex on September 24-25. For more information on Supermoto in Victoria and how you can get involved please visit: www.motorcyclingvic.com.au/supermoto/.
