Judging by the gaps at the end it was a snorker of a race - the three top fliers in BEARS 4 so close together!! But Smarty ahead of them - yes!!! Go Team Redax!! The three of them even finished ahead of Matty on the hyper Ducatigale!! Good to see that Maurizio, Lisa and Ian came home safe on Day 1.

Mate and I will be there by 10 hopefully tomoz. Any idea what time Race 1 will be? Might have to leave a tad earlier! Reckon the weather might be a bit frier too.
What ... leave it standard??!!

Sorry guys hate to rain on your parade but Matty was actually on the number 2 Redax bike not the FE in the F3 F5 race. So we had 4 Laverdaís circulating.
He started out of 12th in race 2 as the dam rain in the first race meant he took it real easy least as was his first race on it.
Smarty had a massive slight needed to use his right knee as a third wheel to save it so the pesky Triumph got him.
Second race the dam rain stayed away and was a closer event. Give it another couple of laps and there was a good chance that there would have been a Laverda one two. The two triumphs were dicing between themselves in second and third while Matty was carving his way through the field. He got held up for a few laps getting past a big triumph triple but once past the dam thing he realer the others in, in fact he set the fastest lap of the day.
So letís hope the dam rain stays away and Victoria brings out the sun as should be a cracking race. Any Victorian that ainít here tomorrow to witness and would rather be sipping lattes at some show is to use bob Hawkes words a bum.
So get on ya Lavs and ride on up to see the two awesome Redax Laverdaís plus Black Betty and Monty

Sitting on the fence 120 or 180 that is the question ?

By the by just quietly seems that only two Laverda riders managed to ride to the track and neither are Orange or even Victorian bikes 🤔 maybe the Vics are way more smarty than us NSWelshmen as they knew it was cold and wet god dam it Vic weather is the pits

True so very too but as they say never let the truth get I the way of a good story......
Didnít the bike with the skitso DNA arrive via a trailer ???
wishing it was a 120  :P :P :P

Anywho no matter how you look at it there were 4 Laverdas out on track racing at the same time in Australia today how cool is that
👀

Also speaking of cool it was really great of the Vicís to put on the spread they did after the Saturday racing for the Redax team. It was a most welcome after the chilly day to spend a few hours in front of the fire enjoying some great hospitality, fine food and cold beers. The potatoe salad was a particular hit thanks Terese for that and thanks to Serge and all the others for putting it on.
So here we are Sunday morning getting ready for what should be some dam fine racing and entertainment from the team Redax riders ably supported by Maurice on Black Betty and Ian on Monty.. four Laverdas on track at the same time I reckon it doesnít get much better than that hey.
