Johnson Controls MX Beach Race 2004            See All The Pictures At John Baikie's Web Site

The 2004 beach race held on Thurso beach was a great success with entries from as far as Fraserburgh. The racing started at 3:30 after all the hard work carried out by the Caithness MX Club and friends forming the track with Geddes and John Anderson’s JCB’s.

The afternoon’s events consisted of 4 junior races and 4 senior races and with Caithness FM, the tide and sun out and a barbecue in attendance every one was in good spirits.

Kyle Mackie on his 125cc Yamaha dominated the senior races with Glen Bruce and Richard Macadie in close second. The crowds on the esplanade were treated to high flying from some of the seniors launching themselves off the sand jumps and pulling “wheelies” down the straight at the water’s edge.

The junior races were every bit as exiting as the adult races with some nail biting finishes for 6th position between Danny Mackenzie and Dagan Mackay. William Mackenzie consistently won all the junior races with Scott Maxwell racking up 4-second places.

The sun stayed out for the trophy presentation carried out by Stephen Lucas from Johnson Controls Ltd.
