Kirk Gibbs wins round 4 of MX nationals
Monday, 9 May 2011
South Australian home state hero Kirk Gibbs raced to his first victory of the season for Serco Yoshimura Yamaha in the Motul Pro Lites, a perfect score of 1-1-1-1 results boosting him to the overall.
Gibbs' result slashed the previous 85-point advantage of title leader Matt Moss (JDR Motorex KTM) to 37, becoming the first Lites rider of the year to gain a clean sweep for the round.
"I had a heap of family and friends here this weekend and it feels good to be the first to win four races in a row for the round and I was able to take a big chunk out of Moss' points lead," 21-year-old Gibbs said. "I just want to keep chipping away, take it round by round and see where we end up. It feels so good to get this one in my home state."
This puts Gibbs in a good position after round 4 and team mate Josh Cachia is close behind.
