27-06-11

GMR Motorex KTM racer Reece Rayner has been selected by Motorcycling Australia to attend the FIM World Junior Motocross Championships in Cingoli, Italy on 13 & 14 August in the 65cc class, as a member of the Australian contingent.

Rayner was ecstatic to hear the news “I was so happy when I got the call! It’s awesome! It’s only about five weeks away and I am really looking forward to it.”

Mitchell Evans has been named as reserve for the 85cc class, while Callum Norton has also been announced as reserve in the 65cc class.
 
This will be the third year in a row that GMR Motorex KTM racers have been selected to attend the prestigious event as a part of the Motorcycling Australia contingent, having supported race team members Jay Wilson (1st 2009 85cc), Dylan Long (3rd 2009 85cc) and Scott Mann (9th 2010 85cc) previously.

Preparations are well underway for Rayner and the team is under no illusions how tough the Cingoli track and competitors will be.

GMR Motorex KTM Team Manager Glenn Macdonald said “I am extremely proud of Reece’s selection in the 65cc class and it is definitely a well deserved appointment. Reece’s results have been excellent and I am sure he will do himself and his family, his country and race team sponsors very proud in Italy.”

“The appointment of Mitchell Evans and Callum Norton as reserves is also a fantastic achievement. Both riders are on standby to attend and I have no doubt, with both being quite young in their respective age groups, they would certainly be aiming for the 2012 contingent.”

Everyone at GMR Motorex KTM, KTM Australia and our associated sponsors wish Reece and the entire contingent the very best of luck.
