    The Victorian Mini Sprints 2014/15 Gold Cup series continued with the latest round at Ballarat’s Redline Raceway held on Sunday the 8th of March & in a barnstorming display, Victorian Champion Dave May romped to victory ahead of Kevin Bomford & Matt Parsons in a super quick display by all competitors.

    Three heat races determined starting positions for the feature event, in a display of how close the top runners are in the division there were three different heat winners with eventually podium finishers Parsons, then Bomford & May (# 4 Tritech Lubricants/ Noske Transport – GSXR 1000 Suzuki) winning races.

    Parsons started the night well defeating May who had to come from the back of the field to pass Bomford, Jason Lynn, Darren Schnoor (# 6 Browns Stockfeeds – R1 Yamaha), Luke Hickson & Kyle Stathopoulos in the first heat race.

    Bomford (# 32 Elite Metals– R1 Yamaha) then proved to strong for May in the second heat with a strong display from Hickson who continues development showing he is on his way to the front of the pack. Lynn (# 24 Sponsor wanted – R1 Yamaha) & Schnoor completed the field whilst Parsons didn’t finish with a broken throttle spring & Stathopoulos ended up on his side after bouncing off the wall & then clipping the pole line wind row gently.

    May’s first victory had to wait until the third heat when he defeated Schnoor & Hickson (# 21v Alfred Engineering– R1 Yamaha) with Parsons & Bomford finding the others too hard to catch. Lynn & Stathopoulos rounded out the field.

    The feature race may not have been close in the way of finishes, however each & every driver was wickedly fast with May, Bomford, Parsons (# 73 Jettco – Yamaha R1), Hickson & Lynn rounding out the result. Schnoor was disappointed to be a non finisher with a broken torsion arm as was Stathopoulos (# 99 Kercar Transport – R1 Yamaha).
