HARDIMAN KAWASAKI ATV RACE TEAM’S LUKE GAISFORD TAKES 2ND IN ATV CUPHardiman Kawasaki ATV Race Team rider Luke Gaisford has ridden the Kawasaki KFX450R ATV to 2nd place in the ATV Cup at the final round of the 2011 Australian Motocross Championship at Coolum, QLD on 31 July. Team mate Paul Worth’s results were also consistent enough to put him inside the top 5 by the close of the event.
Luke Gaisford got his 2011 ATV Cup campaign off to the best start possible when he qualified the KFX450R ATV in pole position on the Coolum MX track. From there, the current WA State Series leader stringed together four outstanding motos, taking 2-2-2-2 to finish in 2nd place overall.
A pleased Luke Gaisford says, “I’m happy with the result. The KFX450R had nice power and handled the track really well. I’d like to thank everybody at the Hardiman Kawasaki ATV Race Team and Luke Beechy Motorsports for their support.”
Fellow Hardiman Kawasaki ATV rider Paul Worth showed that consistency pays off. After struggling slightly in qualifying, the Hardiman Kawasaki mechanics made some subtle changes to Worth’s Kawasaki ATV that yielded great results. Worth took 5-5-6-5 throughout the four races to finish the ATV Cup in 5th place.
Paul Worth says, “Overall I’m happy with my results this weekend. The KFX performed really well. I was only a couple of seconds off third and fourth and my fitness is not where it should be at the moment so I’ll lift the bar for the Nationals at Coolum later in the year and hopefully I can finish on the podium.”
The Hardiman Kawasaki ATV Race Team will be looking to further their success at the QLD ATV Titles at Moranbah, QLD this month.
