AUSTRALIAN star Sam Masters warmed up for the UK season with victory in the Jason Lyons Solo meeting at Mildura last weekend.
The Wolverhampton and Edinburgh man edged out Justin Sedgmen to take the title as his preparations step up for the new domestic campaign.
Masters said: “It was a long old drive to Mildura with the family so to come away with the win made it worthwhile.
“Jason is something of a legend at Mildura and a top bloke to be around, so to win his meeting does mean a lot.
“It was good to catch up with a few old faces and just hang out for the weekend and relax with friends. It’s a long old drive back home so I made sure I enjoyed the weekend away.
“I’m still looking at dates to fly back to England, but time is passing now and the season will soon be here I guess.”
