The results for the weekend were Cadet 9 first Keenan Yeung, Cadet 12 winner Ryan DeBorre, second Liam Finney, third Harrison Klemm and fourth Jayme Campbell.

Orlando Papalia led the KA4 junior light class in his opening race from Annabella Hutchinson in second, while Juho Maliniemi won Tag 125 restricted from Bailey Cooper with Simon Hutchinson and Vern Crimmins third and fourth.
