CDR Yamaha Monster Vitality’s Aaron Tanti has begun his 2023 ProMX title defence strongly with a slim count-back win at Appin at the moment.

In searingly scorching situations, Tanti and returning former champion Dean Ferris (Brisbane Bikes Yamaha) break up race wins, each ending with 45 factors.

After securing pole place, Dean Ferris escaped first-turn chaos initially of the opening MX1 moto that took down CDR Yamaha Monster Vitality’s Luke Clout and Enhance Cellular Honda Racing’s Kyle Webster.

Ferris rapidly checked out from the chasing MX1 pack, and by the point he crossed the finish-line, he’d stretched out a 33-second lead over second-placed Kirk Gibbs (KTM Racing Staff).

Tanti and Jed Beaton (Enhance Cellular Honda Racing) completed a hard-fought third and fourth respectively after each beginning on the cusp of the highest 10.

Raceline Husqvarna Berry Candy Racing’s Todd Waters crossed the road in fifth, forward of Brett Metcalfe (GO24 KTM), Matt Moss (WBR Yamaha), and Hamish Harwood (KTM). Clout clawed his approach again to P9 after happening within the first flip, with Joel Evans (Honda) rounding out the highest 10.

Ferris tore off the gate with one other good holeshot within the first of the back-to-back races, with Tanti and Clout giving chase.

Halfway via the shortened moto, Ferris crashed arduous and remounted in 13th, handing Tanti the race lead and ultimately a four-second race win over his team-mate Clout.

Beaton and Webster completed within the prime 4, as Ferris rebounded to take fifth. Harwood, Gibbs, Moss, Metcalfe and Waters completed P6-P10.

Ferris made it three holeshots from three race begins with one other good gate-jump within the second of the MX1 back-to-back races.

Within the energy-sapping warmth he cruised to a cushty six-second lead over Beaton and Tanti, who held their positions from the primary flip.

Clout and Waters completed fourth and fifth respectively, as Gibbs, Webster, Harwood, Jai Walker (KTM) and Metcalfe stuffed the highest 10 positions.

Moss, who was circulating inside the highest 10, retired late within the race.

The following spherical of the ProMX championship will probably be held at Wodonga, VIC on 16 April.
