The main ring of Kingaroy Showgrounds will be abuzz with the sound of motorcycle racing this Saturday (September 15).
The State’s top young motorcycle speedway riders will be competing in the Queensland State Titles for the Under-16 125cc Best Solo and Best Pairs, battling it out for the honour of being crowned this year’s best.
Kingaroy Junior Motorcycle Speedway Club is hosting this year’s State Titles, and club secretary Tracey Tunstall said it was the fourth year in a row the club had been allocated the prestigious event.
The day will begin with the Under 16 125cc Solo race, where twelve riders will be trying for line honours:
- Blake Warrington
- Maurice Brown
- Flynn Nicol
- Troy Jackson
- Liam Powell
- Dane Walsh
- Tate Zischke
- Jetzen Lyons
- Joshua Beetham
- Jasper Freebairn
- James Pearson
- Nathan Goman
Riders will be briefed at 10:00am and the race will begin at 10:30am.
They’ll be followed in the early afternoon by six teams racing hard to take out the Best Pairs title:
- Team 1 – Nathan Goman and Jasper Freebairn
- Team 2 – Joshua Beetham and Liam Powell
- Team 3 – Jetzen Lyons and Troy Jackson
- Team 4 – Flynn Nicol and Tate Zischke
- Team 5 – James Pearson and Maurice Brown
- Team 6 – Blake Warrington and Dane Walsh
Riders will be briefed at 1:45pm and racing will get underway at 2:00pm.
In between, five PeeWee riders will be acting as a support class for both events, giving Cohan Sanders, Corey Van Elswyk, Summer Van Elswyk, Jonathan Fulton and Theo Afeaki the opportunity to demonstrate their riding skills.
Presentations for both State Titles will be held immediately after the completion of Best Pairs racing.
Canteen facilities will be available on the grounds, and spectator entry is free.
“It would be great to see lots of spectators supporting these riders doing what they love,” Tracey said.
“It’s a great honour for the South Burnett to host these titles, and the young riders who’ll be competing are the best in Queensland.”
