Setting the early pace, both Hollis and Milner took direct transfers through to the main event with each rider securing a win in the Heats. Opting for a steady ride Boyle settled for a third and fourth place result to secure his spot in the main event. After a troublesome time in the heat races, Price eventually made it through to the final with victory in the LCQ.
With all eyes fixed on Hollis, Price and Milner, it was Boyle that grabbed the all-important holeshot in the first main event of the event. Untroubled out front, the Honda rider rode a clean race to ensure the win.
In the second final Boyle once again claimed the holeshot to ensure another start-to-finish win.
Facing his biggest challenge of the night, the Honda rider eventually fended off a fierce challenge from both Hollis and Husqvarna’s Kyle Redmond to end the event undefeated.
"It just went perfect," Boyle said. "I struggled a bit in the heats but in the finals once I got into the lead I just rode at a speed I was comfortable with. The track was great and I am looking forward to doing a bit more off road racing this year – this is a good way to start.”
Recording a 2-3-4 scorecard in the main event finals, Hollis finished as runner up to Boyle.
"I had an awesome ride," remarked Hollis. "I bent a lever in one heat and then suffered a bit of arm pump. I had a great battle with Peter (Boyle) but in the end he just smashed it. I knew I had enough points for second if I rode smart so that’s what I did in the end.”
After a difficult start to the event, Price recovered well to claim the final step of the podium with third overall. Mitch Harper and Tom McCormack rounded out the top five.
