CDR/Boost Mobile/Yamaha rider Daniel McCoy has had his first round race result amended following a post race inquiry earlier this week.

The event organisers deemed the nineteen-year-old was in fact involved in the cause of the incident that stopped the Pro Lites final at the opening round of the Australian Supercross Nationals in Sydney on Saturday 17th January.

Rule 5.8.6 of the General Competition Rules states that where an incident causes an event to be stopped the Stewards and the Clerk of the Course may declare the event complete if at least 75% of event distance or time has been run. The results so declared will be based on the placing's at the finish line of the last full lap completed but will exclude those competitors who a) cause the incident or b) having been involved in the incident could not continue in the event.

The Craig Dack Racing team are extremely disappointed with the outcome as they understood the yellow flags displayed when the incident that stopped the race took place, should have exonerated their rider from the cause of the incident.

The amended result sees Daniel drop back to ninth position with a total of 7 championship points.

<pre> Revised Round 1 Championship Points 1 Ryan Marmont KTM 20 2 Jye Harvey Honda 17 3 Daniel Reardon Kawasaki 15 4 Blake Williams Kawasaki 13 5 Adam Cini Yamaha 11 6 Mitch Hoad Suzuki 10 7 Paul Broomfield Kawasaki 9 8 Cameron Sinclair Kawasaki 8 9 Daniel McCoy Yamaha 7 10 Bronte Holland Honda 6

The second round of the Australian Supercross Nationals will be held at Townsville Speedway on Saturday 24th January 2004.
