BRADY'S BACK IN ACTION
POOLE'S PLATINUM number one Brady Kurtz returned to competitive racing on Saturday night contesting the New South Wales State Championship at Cowra.
Kurtz missed the Pirates last two meetings due to a shoulder injury sustained in the semi-final play-offs at Wimborne Road against Somerset which involved Jack Holder who was also in action on Saturday. And it was Holder who claimed the State Title, recovering from a first heat exclusion to win the A final from Sam Masters, Josh Pickering and Brady's brother Todd.
Brady himself scored 10 points in the qualifying heats a tally that was limited after being disqualified from his fifth schedule ride of the night, but his double figure achievement was sufficient to place him in the B final from where a shot at the title was still an opportunity for the winner. But in that B final Pickering and Ben Cook finished ahead of Kurtz who was fresh back in Australia after his trip to Abu Dhabi for the F1 Grand Prix.
Result: J.Holder 12+3 (Fx,3,3,3,3); S.Masters 14+2 (3,3,2,3,3); J.Pickering 10+1 (3,2,3,2,0); T.Kurtz 12+0 (2,3,2,2,3); B.Cook 10 (3,2,3,1,1); B.Kurtz 10 (2,3,2,3,X); J.MacDonald 12 (3,2,3,2,2); M.Gilmore 10 (1,1,2,3,3); Z.Cook 7 (2,0,1,2,2); I.Hawes 4 (0,2,0,0,2); M.Campton 4 (1,1,1,1,N); M.Pickering 4 (1,0,1,1,1); K.Thomson 3 (2,1,0,n,N); A.MacDonald 2 (0,1,1,n,N); A.Clare 2 (1,0,0,0,1); K.Lawrence 0 (0,0,0,0,0); J.Hook (Res) 2 (2)
