Todd Barry was awarded the 2014 outright SART series Champion at the recent awards night held at Motorcycling South Australia head office. Todd came into the 2014 SART season automatically graded as an expert due his status and background as an Enduro competitor. This year Todd competed in more than one Reliability Trial, earning him a Rookie title to go with his expert status. Todd won 4 of the 7 rounds including the Swann Insurance 24 hour which was enough for him to claim the championship title, winning the series on 149 points.
Last years winner Rowan Pumpa was a close 5 points behind Todd in the series up to the final round, and conceded defeat finishing on 141 points after the young rookie won his 4th event in the series.
Toby Lewis started the season strong leading by 1 point after round 4, but was unable to compete any further due to injury. This left the door wide open for the others including Sam Wegner, who has been another surprise package coming on strong in the later half of the season to take third place on 84 points.
Mark Launer & Tyson Rohrlach are the 2014 Sidecar Champions after a consistent season finishing on a points total of 118. Mark & Tyson only managed one win in the series which was round 4 the ‘Swann insurance 24hour’, happily claiming the bonus points issued for the event. The pair were kept busy battling with the old sidecar master Malcom Rasmus with his passenger Nathan Saegenschnitter in most of the rounds.
Malcom and Nathan finished their season in second place on 117 points, and both teams each completed 5 of the rounds, but it was the bonus points which finally sealed the series win for Mark and Tyson, taking overall victory by just 1 point after finishing in second place behind Malcom and Nathan in the final event in the 2014 season.
Matt Neldner competed in 4 of the rounds with passenger Justin John, then took on board Jason Rohrlach as his new passenger for the final round. Good results in a total of 5 rounds riden awarded him 84 points, which was enough for third place on the podium paired with his two passengers.
