Australian Championships: Tungate goes top after Round Two triumph!

Oxford Spires’ Rohan Tungate sits top of the Australian Championships with three rounds remaining after a near faultless performance at Kurri Kurri on Sunday.

The 33-year-old – who will return to the UK in March to be part of Oxford Speedway’s first season in the Premiership of the club’s new era – dropped just one point from five qualifying rides before the meeting was ended prematurely.

It leaves him three points clear at the top of the championship on 30 points with Max Fricke (27) second and Jaimon Lidsey (23) currently third. Sam Masters was also amongst the points at Kurri Kurri, scoring eight points to leave him in ninth overall with 15 points.

The series continues on Tuesday at Albury-Wodonga in Victoria.

Australian Championship Standings:

Rohan Tungage 30, Max Fricke 27, Jaimon Lidsey 23, Jack Holder 22, Josh Pickering 19, Chris Holder 18, Brady Kurtz + Ryan Douglas 16, Sam Masters 15, Ben Cook 14, Zach Cook 13, James Pearson 11, Keynan Rew 7, Tate Zischke + Michael West 5, Fraser Bowes + Jye Etheridge 4.
