Juniors to star on the track

THE Canobolas Motorcycle Club’s growing junior base is gearing up for the 2014 motocross season.

The club has released its calendar for this year which includes six race meetings and two practice days.

The first practice day will be held on March 16 and racing gets underway on April 13.

Other race days will be held on May 4, June 29, July 20, August 10 and September 21.

The Orange-based club had a successful year on the track in 2013.

Close to half the competitors at the club races at Newhaven Park were junior riders.

Junior competitors also enjoyed success around the state.

Eight-year-old Campbell Williams was second in the NSW State Titles in the 50cc high power class.

He also took out the top spot in the Bathurst and Dubbo club championships.

Another of the Orange club’s eight-year-olds, Tate Rowland, took out the junior club champion prize at the CMC’s recent presentation night.

Rowland and Campbell had a tough battle throughout the 2013 season but Rowland was able to come out on top by a narrow 30 points.

Newhaven Park has a purpose-built junior track which allows the younger riders plenty of time to ride and improve their skills.

The club’s next licensing and training day will be held on February 15 and is a way for juniors to get involved in racing.
