The deep sand of Coastal Park in Western Australia was the site for Round 1 of the WA State MX Championships over the weekend!
In what was a dominant display of racing over both days BCP HAS Honda Junior Development Team rider Seth Shackleton took a convincing three wins from three starts on Saturday in the hotly contested MX3 class! Then backed it up on Sunday doing likewise in the Junior 250cc class making it 6 wins from 6 starts over the weekend.
The strong weekend for Shackleton comes off the back of a very impressive start to his Pro MX MX3 campaign just one week ago where the WA junior rider went 6-5 for 6th overall!

“We’re off to a good start in 2024,” said Shackleton.
“My bike is feeling awesome, I’ve been training really hard and I feel we’re in a good place at the moment! I’m real happy to win all my motos this weekend and we’ll take those points into the next round.”

Shackleton’s BCP HAS Honda Junior Development rider team-mate Leah Rimbas also had a weekend to remember by winning all three of her points scoring races in the Junior Girls category on Sunday! Rimbas was in a league of her own lapping the entire 12 rider field in moto one on a brutally rough Coast Park circuit!

“I’m so happy we had enough girls to constitute a class today and all the girls did such a great job out there,” said Rimbas.
“I’m feeling really good on the bike after racing round 1 of Pro MX at Wonthaggi and it’s awesome to take maximum points into Round 2.”

Seth Shackleton and Leah Rimbas will line up for Round 2 of the ‘Smarter Than Smoking’ WA State MX Championships on April 20th 21st as the series heads next to the Lightweight Motorcycle Club.
