Oldest Josh started dirt track competition when he was 4yrs old locally then the road trips started with Brodie then Nicholas starting and all working there way from dirt to road. Millions of miles on the road to travel to these meetings, started studying the rule book, manual lap scored started at the tracks, Flag duties, becoming an official was next working my way up to level 4 then joined MV dirt track committee travelling to Melbourne for monthly meetings which thrn progressed to MA commission first time as a junior commissioner then out , got asked to come back in so become part of the junior development commission and now been on the road race commission for the last few years. I love being part of always making or chose sport the best it can be for the competitors on the track and at times things can get frustrating but the riders make it all worth while as without these guys and gals we wouldn’t have our sport.My passion is this sport in every aspect, the good, the bad and the ugly.
Outside of the infield battles between the riders and the sportsmanship and respect shown it would have to be the people you meet in every garage and under every tent. Friendships that span over the years watching children growing from 4yr old pee wee racers to multi talented riders on road and dirt disciplines. No matter which there is always a friendly smiling face, live, love breathe this sport.
I encourage women and girls of whatever age to get involved, you will never regret it. It offers so much that is never shown on cameras, in magazines. So many opportunities to discover that hidden talent on the ground being part of the officials, flag Marshall’s, administration and the list goes on and that’s only if your not throwing a leg over that bike and heading out on track.
With a neve say never attitude, life in general is never a bed of roses so to speak so keeping a positive attitude, strong mind, strong soul and fighting die hard spirit this is what gets you through the hard times and builds up that resilience needed in any discipline sport chosen and that’s not just for motorcycle racing, that’s pretty much covers all sports and life.
To never stop dreaming and pushing to achieve those dreams. Work hard always giving it your all and time does bring rewards.
Would love to see our women’s fields grow till they are there own class so they can race each other as well as the open classes that they compete in now. Through shear hard work and never ending commitment we now have a female rider achieve world championship status so let’s make that happen here domestically and who will be our first female Australian champion.
Gee that’s a hard one as when as parents we were running our 3 boys through the dirt track days there was always many a story told on our drives home and these drives were never short always long road trips then the stories just grew once they all stepped up to road racing as there was never a dull moment in the pit garages, pit lane or out on track but one that Brodie and Nicholas would remember and we still now can have a laugh was when they were both in the 600 super sport class and always pushing each other but we started race one at Symons Plains Tassie, lap one and Brodie goes in to hot up at the tight hairpin and bang he takes his brother out, both got back up brodie’s Bike was good enough to finish the race but Nicholas had to ride his straight into the pits, Josh was standing with me and we were garaged up near control tower but everyone could hear Nicholas just going off as he entered pit lane all the way along till our garage and words could not be repeated. And There never ending pushing of each other still goes to this day, best critics, best coaches, brothers having each other’s backs always everytime on a bike.
Would have to say you can’t surpass the special bonds made at the race tracks, long time friendships that extend outside of motorcycle racing and we become one big family unit that has each other’s backs, tides the highs and lows together and our dedication never faulters. The women in this sport live for this sport and give there heart and soul never asking for little in return as the smiles and celebrations on your kids/riders faces is enough reward.
