Great to get tra trackside info Brett. I'm sitting here waiting for my driver to turn up, effing keen to get there asap! Making a lot more sense now that you've explained that Matty was on Paolo's Scorcher. Couldn't quite work out how a 1299R could be F4 and how a screamer like Matt could be behind. Lap times tell the story about the rain. Glad they kept 'em all upright!!

BTW, if I had the SFQ on the road I'd have been there yesterday. Gonna be another two Laverda owners arriving by car today  :(

And even though the Italian steeds are on show about 800m from my door I'd rather watch them being thrashed at Broady TBH.
What ... leave it standard??!!

So Race 1 Smarty started out of 2 by turn one he was in front and only relinquished for a couple of corners when he missed a gear
The Thruxton came home in second and Matty brought number 2 into third with the second Triumph into 4th
So that means we are now 6 points in front so last race will be interesting
Matty actually was quicker from lap 3 onwards than Smarty
even though he was backing off a tad down the main straight due to a slight misfire
Not sure if we sorted it or not  Hopefully Smarty can bring the mule home for a win and a round win oh and the championship
Sitting on the fence 120 or 180 that is the question ?

Accumulated points are just for the shown Victorian rounds/Vic championship?
There's the Oz championship Red is going for?
There's been close racing at the pointy end there and it seems like the event has been a great success.
Well done teams and all those involved.

So it was an awesome weekend at Broadford for the final round of the National BEARS F4 Championship. 1st place! Winners are grinners. REDAX LAVERDA  P1 so a just reward for all Reds hard work not to mention the 20,000 odd kilometres that he has driven around Australia in the Van to get the bikes to all the rounds. I gotta tell ya he even managed to crack a smile when it was over. 🏆 😃👍🍻 makes all the hard work over the year by all worth it especially those behind the scenes like Maxene team owner 😃 Mark who does a lot of miles roading in various development updates Paul for staring it all with Rosie, Cosi for being Cosi 😃 shame you werenít there brother as couldnít finish all the Coronas without ya, Matty and Tina for the Van to get the bikes to the track.
Now  I must say that there were a few nervous moments esp on Saturday in race 1 which was wet.
Race 2 was better though and we Then also on Sunday morning with the super close racing in the third race, Smarty it seems was living by the age old analogy of to win you only have to finish in front of the next bike so why not make it interesting for the spectators at the expense of the team watching on the side lines thinking whatís wrong with the bike...😓
Now while it sure does make a good spectacle it does cause some rather anxious moments for those on the side.
To wii in the last race as always he was leaving it a little bit too close for comfort and the Thruxton block past him at the last corner and not even the might of that engine in the mule was enough to get the lead back to the line. Think perhaps he had forgotten the last race was a shortened 4 lap sprint. 🤔
Matty in the 3rd race on Paulís bike finished a well deserved third and really put the cat amongst the pigeons by finishing in front of the up till then series leader in the Triumph but also by doing quite a few laps faster than team rider number 1 even dropping into the 4ís. 💨
Paul was ever so happy to see his bike out on track in fact to see both bikes on track at the one time in anger as in the past he was out there 😃
Just quietly rumour has it when his coaching duties are over that we might see him out of retirement. 🤣
Speaking of which Lisa is just getting better every outing on the Monster and she got down into the 12ís on Sunday. Now Paul (aka the throttle whisperer ) is a bit coy about it but itís mainly down to his guidance that itís happened. Lisa attracts no end of people wanting to give her advice but whilst she listens to them with a smile we all know full well that she only takes on board the advice from her real coach. She be faster next year I just bet 👌
Maurice also put in another sterling performance at his home track with Black Betty which was on song the whole weekend. 👏, we never even had to lift a finger to it apart from fuel and tyre warmers. He was suffering with a bad pain from a bad tooth but still braved it to get out there and put on a performance at his home track. Itís amazing to see that RGS launch off the line.
That brings us to Ian and Monty first time at Broadford and Monty didnít let the side down by circulating all weekend without a hick up so job done all weekend no issues. Guess the only hiccup was with the number two bike Sunday arvo it developed a slight miss fire so Matty being to type of rider with lots of mechanical empathy decided to come in rather than damage an engine..,
He was leading the F1 championship by the slimmest of margins on the big Panni but in the last race got bailed in turn one and relinquished the lead and being that it was only a 4 lap per just couldnít make back the deposit to Marc in front so ended up being pipped in the championship by 2 points. Bugger.
Massive thanks to the VIC LAVERDA CLUB for all of their support over the weekend it was really appreciated by all of us.
Good also that TC numero uno and Yuli were in attendance with Tom plying us with the odd Peroni on Saturday night to ensure we were sufficiently hydrated.
The Vicís even managed to find a bed for TC numero due who arrived late on Saturday night to make it two non Orange Laverdas trackside hmm must have been a bit under the weather on Sunday as didnít see any others there but though lots of Orange shirts or black shirts with Orange writing on them.
Iíll put up a few pics when home but they will pale into insignificance to the awesome ones which Rowdie has already put up.
Bring on 2020 and thereís a whisper that you Vics might be treated to something special next year so 😉 😉
