Lismore road racer too swift for opponents with two wins

LISMORE driver Warren Swift won two divisions and finished second in another in the North Coast Road Racers Club Championship.

An impressive effort considering Swift missed the final round of competition.

He is also retiring from competition after 15 years with the club.

The final round was held over two days on the kart track at the Lismore Showground. Other club championship winners were Chris Thomas, James Britton, Justin Hall, Justin Thomas, Adam Webster, Lachlan Byron and Kyam Buckton.

Paul Slade, Travis Goff, Jason Bailey, Lee Virtue and Justin Hall won the one-hour ironman races on Saturday.

"The ironman races went smoothly with a few spills and thrills," club president James Britton said.

"But we were pretty lucky it didn't rain and we got through the weekend without any injuries.

"It's always great racing when you put all three (stock, superlite and motolight) on the track at the same time."

There was also a come and try day on Sunday with the club looking to attract new members, particularly in the juniors (9-16 years).

The club increased its numbers this year and now has the largest stock bike class in Australia.

"You have no idea how much fun it is until you try," Britton said

"It's been a great year and the club championships were only decided by a few points in each class," he added.
