ALBURY-Wodonga young gun Remmie Fyffe is aiming to win his first-ever state title at home when the Albury-Wodonga Motorcycle Club hosts the coveted 2015 Victorian Junior Dirt Track Championships this weekend, December 5-6.
The 10-year-old is hoping his knowledge of his home track and the support from home town fans can make him cross the finish-line first.
“I expect really good results this weekend. I’m aiming to finish first. It’s my home track and I really love riding around there,” Remmie said.
“I love the speed and the sliding of dirt track racing. It is great fun racing with my mates,” he added.
Remmie will be competing in the 85cc 9-11-year-old and the 65cc Under-13-year-old classes this weekend.
In only his second year competing in the sport, Remmie took part in the Australian Junior Dirt Track Championships in Tamworth, New South Wales in July.
“On my 85cc, I finished in seventh-place and on my 65cc I unfortunately touched the tape and was disqualified,” Remmie, who said he’ll learn from the experience, added.
On this weekend, Remmie said he’ll be looking forward to racing in front of his hometown fans. “I’ve done a lot of practice meetings and race meetings and would love to finish at the top of the podium at the end of the weekend,” Remmie added.
Remmie would like to thank his parents for all their help and the volunteers of the Albury-Wodonga Motorcycle Club for all their efforts in preparing to host the Victorian Senior & Junior Dirt Track Championships.
“They’ve done a lot of work. They’ve been great including the flaggies (flag marshals),” Remmie praised.
The 2015 Victorian Dirt Track Championships takes place at the Albury-Wodonga Motorcycle Club on the Lincoln Causeway on Saturday, December 5 to Sunday, December 6. For more information please visit: www.motorcyclingvic.com.au.
