Unique Tamworth event a test of riders' versatility

IT’S a unique event on the calendar and at Oakburn Park on Saturday Tamworth Motorcycle Club hosted its annual Harry Pyne Champion of Champions.

The event was started by the late Harry Pyne when the club was based  at Pyne Park and incorporates three different disciplines, with riders competing in motocross, dirt track and speedway.

They complete two rounds of each and the champion is the best performed across all three.

“It’s the most challenging event on the calendar,” president Paul Slade said.

Especially in weather like Saturday, with the mercury hitting 40 at one stage.

Ben Clark won the seniors and Cameron Donald the juniors.

“Because there’s so many divisions it goes on the junior who has scored the most points,” Slade said.

Donald finished with 151 out of a maxiumum of 300.

“He won all the speedway races and was second or third in the others,” Slade said.

Clark dominated the motocross and collected 160 points.
