The Pirelli MX2 Class has seen much pre season hype and speculation over who would lead the charge in the 2022 Penrite ProMx Championship (ProMX) presented by AMX Superstores.The riders did not take long to show this was hype justified with incredible on track action in front of a sold out crowd and perfect racing conditions at the sandy Wonthaggi track.
In MX2 moto 1, it was Team HRC Honda Racing’s Wilson Todd who would find his way to the lead after early race leader, Gas Gas mounted Noah Ferguson would crash out of proceedings early. Todd would extend a small lead early, only to be challenged for the entire moto by Yamalube Yamaha Racing’s Alex Larwood. Larwood would match the pace of Todd but remain several bike lengths behind throughout the moto, as the pair would finish 1st and 2nd at the flag. Serco Yamaha’s Jesse Dobson rode a constant moto to finish 3rd, with his team mate Bailey Malkiewic in 4th and Haruki Yokohama rounding out the top 5 on his Empire Kawasaki.
Moto 2 was a familiar affair, with Wilson Todd leading from the early stages and Alex Larwood charging from a poor start to close in and match the lap times of the leader in second, trailing the previous MX2 champion for multiple laps around the sandy Wonthaggi track. Late in the moto, Todd was too strong and would take the chequered flag, ahead of Larwood in 2nd and Bailey Malkiewicz in 3rd, Jesse Dobson 4th and Ryder Kingsford 5th.
The overall podium from Wonthaggi for Pirelli MX2 1st – Wilson Todd 2nd – Alex Larwood 3rd – Bailey Malkiewicz
