Thompson takes double IAME win at Rowrah
Harry Thompson took an eight-point lead from the first Super One round after two narrowly won victories.
Both finals for the IAME 60cc 2-stroke engines resolved into four way scraps for the wins. In Final 1 Thompson slotted in behind polesitter Joseph Taylor until Taylor Barnard leapfrogged both. Thompson briefly led but had to slot back in behind Taylor once more with Barnard alternating between 3rd and 4th. A great pass on the last lap sealed victory for Thompson.
Thompson started on pole for Final 2, the televised race, and ended up taking victory. However, it wasn’t made easy for him as he was closely pursued by GP plate driver, Taylor Barnard, right from the word go. The race came to an unfortunate end, 10 laps in, due to a red flag because of an incident between Oliver Denny and Harrison Skinner, both drivers thankfully walked away. This put the results back a lap meaning Thompson was 1st, Barnard 2nd and Bray Kenneally 3rd.
