HIGLETT AND NIELSEN DOMINATE QORC RD 9 & 10 | Race Reports

Beta Motorcycles Australia enduro rider, Fraser Higlett and supported rider Ebony Nielsen win at Murphys Creek, QLD for RD 9 & 10 of the Queensland Off Road Championship.

Located just outside of Toowoomba, the tracks on Saturday were dry, tight, and technical with creek crossings, challenging rock faces and plenty of dust. Sunday saw more fast paced riding on hard pack tracks which continued to test the riders. But still, Fraser Higlett was able to dominate.

Fresh from RD 7 & 8 of the AORC in South Australia, Fraser Higlett took to the track on his RR 390 Racing and continued to ride strong all weekend with wins on both days. Higlett is well on his way to securing back-to-back A Pro class QORC Championship wins, with the final round of the championship later this month.

“It was great to come away with another win on the weekend. The tracks were great and the bike performed really well throughout both days. I’m looking forward to the final round of the QORC at Kyogle later this month“ Fraser Higlett.

The weekend saw Beta Motorcycles Australia supported rider Ebony Nielsen head to the track for the first time aboard a Beta, with her bike of choice being the RR 300 Racing. Saturday’s track was tight and technical which suited Nielsen very well thanks to her hard enduro background. The track on Sunday was faster, on open hard pack fire trails and after trailing in second place for much of the race, Ebony was able to bring it home and take the top spot. Ebony dominated in the I Ladies class, coming 1st place on both days and with a clean sweep of all sprints.

Fraser and Ebony return to the track on 16/17 September for RD 9 & 10 of the AORC and the final round of the QORC at Kyogle, NSW.
