Jason Dunn Motolite National winner

The defending Motolite Sava Tyres Bucket Nationals title holder Newcastle rider #6 Jason Dunn (Honda RS85cr) had no intention of handing over the prize. Jason dominated  qualifying and racing winning all three races and scoring maximum points.

NCRR club rider #76 Damien Coppola on a BBE Honda RS 150 put in a determined effort finishing an impressive second overall on the booming four stroke. 

 Lindsay McKay (#81 Honda RS85cr) back out of retirement was stylish and fast as ever and despite a slight top end misfire clinched third place holding off a racy John Olip (#94) riding his aging Moriwaki 85. Michael Child (#170 Supermono197) came home fifth.

#65 Tim Smith Wins Superlite Sava Tyres Bucket nationals

Tim Smith (#65 Honda CB150) was in devastating form winning 2 races and with his hands on the prize settled for third place in race Three.

Tim won races one and two but had to fight tooth and nail to get the wins. A back in form Ken Lindsay  (#2 Honda RCB150) was proving very difficult to pass and defending title holder Junior Murphy (#38 BBE Honda CB150) wasn't going to hand it over without a fight.

These three riders battled and swapped places continuously during the first 22 King Kenny races. However in race three the King got the holeshot and was never headed. The battle raged behind until Junior broke free of Tim and started to hunt down Ken and with Ken running wide at the hairpin allowed Junior to close but the immaculate #2 bike wasn't to be denied.

Jim Murphy (#62  Jianshe150) finished fourth and John Olip (#94 Suzuki 100) fifth.
