Bendigo Youth RacingÕs (BYR) ÒThe A-TeamÓ have won the 11th Wonthaggi HPGP by six laps over Trisled and 13 ahead of Tru-Blu Racing. The victory marks three wins in a row for the community team, who set a fierce pace from the gun and were never headed. With the Design & Construction and Trial points combined however, it was Trisled’s Easy Tiger team who won the Community class.

Under sunny skies and soaring temperatures, the racing in Wonthaggi saw the overall distance record smashed by BYR and the open girlsÕ record destroyed by St MargaretÕs SchoolÕs (SMS) ÒLynxÓ team.

Looking at the category winners Ð itÕs the traditional front runners who take the silverware again. BYR, SMS, Weeroona College, Flora Hill SC, Berwick SC, Wonthaggi SC and Trisled are all regularly on the podium.

ItÕs the welcome addition of Tru-Blu Racing and Vermont SC which is most exciting. To see these crews move to the pointy-end of their categories is fantastic, not just for the teams themselves, but the broader sport of HPV.
