AUSTRALIA, VICTORIA, GIPPSLAND. Round 3 of the 2018 MX Nationals at Wonthaggi Saturday, 19 May 2018. Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster enjoyed a memorable day in Wonthaggi’s black sand by claiming his first-ever overall victory in the Pirelli MX2 class.

Webster won the opening race and backed it up with a third in the second outing to secure his maiden win. Serco Yamaha pairing Nathan Crawford and Wilson Todd filled the remaining positions on the podium with second and third overall respectively.

The Western Australian Webster started his day perfectly with a wire-to-wire 14-second victory in the opening moto, ahead of series leader Crawford, who fought through the pack after a mediocre start, and Jay Wilson (Yamalube Yamaha Racing). Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing’s Jackson Richardson finished fourth after running as high as second, narrowly ahead of Davey Motorsport KTM’s Hamish Harwood in fifth.

Todd broke through for his first race win of the year in the second MX2 race, more than 17 seconds ahead of Crawford, who again had to push hard through the pack all race. Webster finished a hard-fought third after leading the race earlier. Wilson put in another solid ride to finish fourth, ahead of 2017 MX2 champion and early race leader Egan Mastin (KTM Motocross Racing Team).
