Pelotrain/Race Nation Honda rider Zane Farquharson wins Pro Mini FIM AFRICA/AMU CUP OF NATIONS motocross event

This past weekend Zane Farquharson represented South Africa in the Pro Mini Championship FIM AFRICA/AMU CUP OF NATIONS motocross event in which all countries in Africa send their best riders as a team to compete with a overall winning country decided at the end of the event.

The event this year was held in Zimbabwe at the Donny Brooke circuit and Zimbabwe, as usual put on a fantastic event for the participating countries and riders alike.

Zane carrying great form into the event posted the fastest lap times during Saturdays practice sessions which gave him much needed confidence going into Sundays racing. A solid night’s sleep on Saturday and a early morning wakeup call Sunday, Zane headed to the track.

On the track it was all business for Zane who went 1-1-6 for 1st overall for the day on his Honda CRF150 and the title as FIM AFRICA/AMU CUP OF NATIONS Pro Mini Champion. It wasn’t without some drama thou. IN the last heat while leading Zane went down in a huge heap as he dropped out the sky and landed far from his machine in a fence on a huge step up jump.
Many thought he want getting up to finish the moto and if you saw the crash you would also think so but he untangled his bike and got going again, although, in alot of pain.

Overall, the points added up to the win and his pain for the last few laps were well worth the reward.

Zane’s next event will be the last round of the South African National Championship in Johannesburg at the Dirt Bronco circuit on the 24 September and then Zane will be off to represent South Africa again with fellow team mates Anthony Raynard and Calvin Vlaanderan in Belgium at the Coupe de Laviner.

The team would like to thanks all its sponsors for making this happen for Zane.
