KYABRAM quads star Aidan Robinson will return home from the Northern Territory this week a national champion after he emphatically won the 2015 Yamaha Australian ATV MX Championships at Alice Springs on August 22-23.
Aidan, 14, topped the 200cc – 250cc class by impressively winning four out of five races. Aidan, who was aiming for a top five finish before the weekend, was thrilled with the result. “It’s good to know that all the hard work and effort that we have put in has paid off,” Aidan said.
The quad racer, of the Quad Riders Club of Victoria, also enjoyed racing on a challenging and well-prepared track in the Alice Springs. “It was quite a different track from what we’ve been used to riding on so that was good.
“No-one had any advantages because no-one had ridden there before so it was really good fun,” Aidan said.
Aidan finished with results of 1st-1st-2nd-1st-1st for the weekend. “It was really good racing against my brother Kellan, a rider from Western Australia and a few others,” Aidan added.
Aidan’s brother, Kellan, also competed in the same class finishing a respectable fifth overall. “It was a good weekend of racing. The whole class was really competitive.
“I finished in the top three in the first four races but unfortunately DNF’d in the last race,” Kellan, who hopes to be able to take a lot of confidence away from this meeting for the upcoming Victorian Championships, said.
Eldest brother Keegan Ballantyne, 27, also had a successful weekend by finishing fourth in the Clubman class.
Aidan and Kellan would like to thank 3B Small Engines, Vanika Industries, Vigardo Constructions, Auto Tech Tools, Scott Motorsports, Motorex Australia, his brother Keegan, father Colin, their Mum, and Kelsey Powell for all their incredible support.
