After a foggy start, the first meeting of the year got underway at Rowrah with what looks like being an excellent championship, with some exciting racing in 2015.

Walker took 2nd and Edmundson 3rd. Results are provisional pending scrutineering checks. In Junior Max, Lucy Fulton took 1st from pole man Michael Macpherson during the start of the race, they baled up until the middle of the race when they crashed, meaning both were out of the race, leaving Sam Kirkpatrick to take an easy win.

In Minimax, pole man Chris Lulham retired in lap 5, leaving Tom Wood to take the lead and win. Gordon Mutch took 2nd and Alex Mcdade 3rd. The Senior Rotax final was cancelled due to a shortage of day light because of the late start, due to the fog. The results are based on the positions from the heats. Stuart Middleton would have started on pole for the final aer winning 2 out of the 3 heats so he took first, Thomas Wood 2nd and Abbie Carruthers 3rd.
