Frustrating Melbourne Gp For Bomber
It was a frustrating night for Chris in Melbourne with an ignition problem in his second ride and a controversial exclusion when leading his fourth outing.
Not the GP Chris wanted with a pointless end result after ignition trouble in his second ride as he left the tapes . Then in his fourth outing he gated superbly and led the race with Magic Janowski chasing him but it all ended badly with Chris excluded when Magic tried to go through a non existent gap round the outside with the Pole coming off and the ref deeming that it was Chris's fault.
Chris was interviewed immediately after the incident by Steve Brandon and gave a good interview despite not being happy with the decision.
The atmosphere in the Etihad Stadium was electric and the track rode well but the GP will unfortunately be remembered best for the Sam Masters / Nicki Pedersen incident and the resultant brawl involving Pedersen's pit crew and Masters!
