Mid north motorcycling clubs Gawler, Keyneton and Clare met on Sunday for the third round of the inaugural 2019 Scott Ware Memorial Tri-Series.

The previous two rounds have been held throughout 2019, hosted by Gawler Motorcycling Club (MCC), Keyneton MCC and finally Clare MCC on Sunday October 6.

The Tri-Series is named after Scott Ware, a keen and dedicated local rider who tragically passed away last year.

Scott Ware was well known at all of the clubs involved in the tri-series.

His sons Thomas and Sam continue to race.

All three clubs collaborated on the event format which they say is unique within South Australia.

"We wanted to set it up because there was no club-level racing in South Australia," Keyneton MCC's Jonathan Moore explained.

Mr Moore said the lack of club-level racing might sometimes be a barrier for people who want to get involved in the sport and they wanted to encourage riders new to racing to give it a go.

"There wasn't any kind of initial step," Mr Moore said.

"You either jump right in the deep end or you didn't do it."

While the format encourages juniors to try out racing, sometimes for the first time, it also caters to elite level senior riders.

With this round hosted in Clare, many local riders performed well on familiar turf.

Provisional results saw William Price from Clare MCC win the Seniors, followed by Cooper Sheidow, Ariel MCC in second and then Max Price, Clare MCC in third.

Provisionally, Junior 4 was won by Charlie Milton from Keyneton Motorcycle Club.

Junior 3 was won by Alex Head from Clare Motorcycle Club.

Junior 2 was won by Xavier Cox also from Clare Motorcycle Club.

Archie Hinks, from Clare Motorcycle Club, won Junior 1 and Harry Tomich, Gawler Motorcycle Club, won JJ.

Awards were presented by Scott Ware's family.

Sundays race was the last round of three this year and organisers are hoping to continue the series next year.
