    JASON LYONS TROPHY REPORT
    For my first race meeting of the season I participated in the Jason Lyons Trophy meeting which had me up against some of the best international & fellow Aussie riders. Going into the night, I still wasn’t feeling 100% but feeling well enough to ride. Knowing this I had set myself some goals to check off during the night & as long as I could make those goals I would be happy. My results for the night were 3rd, 2nd, 3rd, 4th & Disqualified. Disappointingly, the results achieved during the

    GILLMAN SPEEDWAY PRACTICE UPDATE 8 Sept
    Last Sunday Gillman speedway hosted a practice day despite the possibility of a postponement due to weather conditions. The day ran awesomely with there only being a short shower with a 30 minute break to allow the track to dry. Personally I thought the way that the Gillman speedway crew ran the day was brilliant! This allowed the solos to get 2-3 minutes on the track to practice all sorts of things, including a few starts and some extra laps. Thank you so much to the crew down at Gillman

    NICE SPEEDWAY CHALLENGE
    I was lucky enough to pick up a ride at an individual meeting here in the UK at the Isle of Wight. The NICE challenge is an event where all riders are supplied an engine (JAWA 2 valve) to showcase how individual skill and knowledge can separate the field. Unfortunately tonight I had a bit of bad luck, my first and second race I had an incident with the air fence (crashed) excluding me for stopping the race both times. Third heat came and I made an excellent start from gate 4 to lead for 3/4

    Hey everyone, I’ve taken advantage of my month holidays from university and I’ve flown to England to get some well needed practice in as there is not a lot happening in Australia this winter. A massive thank you to the crew at JHI Speedway for helping me get the bike into a rideable state in such a short time. I really appreciate their help, without them I wouldn’t have been able to get my first practice in. First practice here in England at Somerset Rebels Speedway - thank you heaps for
