Dirt Track Racing: Central Coast Cup Is On This Weekend.

Some of Australia’s most exciting young dirt track motor cycle racers will converge on the Central Coast of NSW this weekend for the annual staging of the Worthington Motorcycles Honda Central Coast Cup meeting.

The Allen Park track at Debenham Road North, Somersby will again be the scene of this major event on Saturday and Sunday, May 16 and 17.
The Central Coast Cup meeting has in its short history established itself as one of the major non-championships meetings on the dirt track calendar.

One reason for the on-going significance of the meeting is the honour roll of winners in both the senior and junior classes since its inception in 2005.

The senior class has invariably been won by previous, or future, Australian champions and even a future world champion.
Several riders from the host club, the Central Coast Junior Motorcycle Club, will be among the favourites to take the honours on their home track this weekend.

David and Peter Smith and Jack Passfield lead the host club’s hopefuls in the Senior Cup class, while there will also be plenty of interest in the performance of another Central Coast rider.

Taylor Poole had hoped to be racing speedway in the UK this year but having been denied a Work Permit changed his 2015 plans and he will return to his dirt track roots this weekend.

The winners of the Junior Cup for the past two years – Thomas Duggan (2013) and Jarred Brook (2014) - will pose the biggest threat to a local success as both have made a huge impact in their short senior careers to date.

Both Duggan and Brook will be striving to become only the second rider ever to win the Cup at both junior and senior level.

Duggan, Brook and Passfield in particular will have busy weekends as they have also entered the Under19s, Pro 250, Pro 450 and Pro Open classes.

The Junior Cup (for 13 to 16 year olds) will see Hunter club rider Mitchell James trying to repeat his brilliant form from last month’s Trackmasters meeting at the Barleigh Ranch track.

James will be out to emulate his brother Bayley who is a previous winner of the Junior Cup.

The toughest opposition for James is likely to come from Billy Van Erde and North Brisbane rider Max Whale, who were this month included as the only dirt track riders in Motorcycling Australia’s inaugural Elite Performance Academy squad for 2015.

The younger age groups also have strong entries with a number of Australian and State champions included, headed by host club member Senna Agius.

The Central Coast Junior Motor Cycle Club has been in existence for over 40 years and provides a regular program of activities for riders of all ages who want to get involved in the sport at any level.

A highly acclaimed coaching program is in place and among those who have been part of the set-up at Somersby as part of their development is world champions Casey Stoner and Chris Holder.

Entry fee for spectators this weekend will be a tax deductible $5 entry per vehicle payable at the gate to the St Johns First Aid. Action starts 10am both days.
