Albany motocross star Corben Weinert has produced his best ever performance at the Manjimup 15,000 after dominating his MX2 class at the weekend.

Weinert had a successful weekend at the 2019 edition of the popular motocross event, clean-sweeping the MX2 class on his 250cc bike.

The teenager won his first qualifying race by more than eight seconds to directly transfer to the three finals later on.

He led from start to finish in the first final, crossing the line 18.91sec. ahead of his near-est rival and repeated the dose in the next event, this time winn-ing by more than 20sec.

Weinert continued his winning ways in the third final as he powered to a 13.17sec. win over Conan Forrester to wrap up the title.

He was crowned MX2 champion at the event with a clean-sweep, collecting 105 points to beat Forrester (94 points) and Rhys Burnett (92).

The 16-year-old Albany speedster said it was a rewarding weekend.

“I enjoyed myself this year not having any crashes or mishaps,” Weinert said.

“It is one of my favourite events of the year. The atmosphere at this event is electric.

“Next year I will be entering this race in the All-Stars class on a 450cc and race some of the best riders in the country and the world.”

Weinert currently sits second in the WAMX Senior State Championships MX2 standings behind Regan Duffy, who won the major All-Stars title at the Manjimup 15,000.
