2012 Transmoto 12-Hour

The 2012 Transmoto 12-Hour powered by InsureMyRide provided a fun and challenging day for all involved.

With Mother Nature reeking havoc on the area around Batemans Bay and forcing the 12-Hour to be postponed last month, she was again unrelenting in the lead up to the event, staging a severe downpour. Thankfully the creeks around the property subsided enough and the call was made to run it.

More than 350 riders enjoyed what ended up being perfect conditions on the day - race day saw mid-twenty degree temperatures and not a drop of rain in sight. The unpredictable weather in the Batemans Bay region leading up to the event, which forced a last-minute rethink of the course layout, turned out to be a blessing in disguise and competitors enjoyed an amazing track that was a great mix of winding single track and open grass track.

This year we had competition in every class. Victors in the Mixed 4 Class were the 2-Bangers team, who won over two other competing teams, the Underdogs and 50/50. While in the Mens 4 Class there was a heated battle with Detour #1 and The Flying Fourskins, with Detour #1 pulling ahead in the last few hours of racing.

The results weren't so close in the Mens Pairs, with Yeah Almost - who featured Pro Rider Luka Bussa - securing the title over team by nearly a minute.

However, the stars of the event have to be the Ironman riders with eventual winner Nathan Fuller stealing a last-minute victory over Chris Warwick, winning 21 laps to 20.

Although not an official award, the overall victory would have gone to team Yeah Almost who managed to knock over 27 laps, three minutes faster than their nearest rivals in the Detour #1 team. An impressive result when you consider Yeah Almost was a two-man team.

The fastest lap of the event was Glenn Kearney of The Flying Fourskins who clocked a 17:22

We'd also like to once again thank the tireless effort from the Nowra District Motorcycle Club officials for their work across the weekend, as well as the events sponsors, Teknik, The Tool Store, Prorider KTM, MX1 Australia, Mydrade, Scott Goggles, John Titman Racing, Good Head Beer, Kenda Tyres, Lucas Oils and of course, InsureMyRide.
