17-12-12

The GMR Motorex KTM racing team has had yet another solid season in the junior and women’s motocross ranks, scoring yet another four number one plates. The results increase the team tally to an astonishing 37 championships in just five years.

The team’s results can be summarized as follows:

Callum Norton scored 3rd overall at the Victorian Junior Motocross Championships despite missing a round of the series to compete at Loretta Lynn’s in the USA. Callum scored a very impressive 6th place at Loretta Lynn’s in the 9-11 years Modified 85cc class. Norton went on to later secure 2nd overall at the Australian Junior Motocross Championships in the 9-11 years 85cc class.

Reece Rayner
scored 4th overall at the Australian Junior Motocross Championships in the 12-13 years 85cc class as well as a solid 5th in the Queensland Motocross Championships.

Mitchell Evans scored the Queensland Motocross Championship in the 12-13 yeas 85cc class, 2nd overall in the Australian Junior Motocross Championships, as well as an impressive 9th overall at the FIM World Junior Motocross Championships in Bulgaria.

Egan Mastin had a great year, claiming double honours at the New South Wales Championships in the 13-14 years 125-150cc and 250F classes. Mastin also qualified for the finals at the FIM World Junior Motocross Championships in the 125cc class, reportedly the youngest rider on the grid. Injury sustained at the Australian Junior Motocross Championships hampered his overalls at the event but showed great speed and tenacity.

Andy Dinicol showed good speed at the Victorian Junior Motocross Championships opener but unfortunately suffered injury during the season and was not able to compete at the Australian Junior Motocross Championships in September.

Wayde Carter was hampered with injury after claiming round one honours in both the 13-u16 years 125-150cc and 250F classes at the Victorian Junior Motocross Championships. Carter bounced back for the Hattah Desert race, claiming line honours yet again in the junior class. At the Australian Junior Motocross Championships, Carter claimed 2nd overall in the 13-14 years 125-150cc class after a gruelling week suffering arm pump and mechanical issues.

Senior Women’s racer Kristy Gillespie continued her dominating form in the Victorian Motocross Championships, claiming her 7th consecutive title. Gillespie went on to put in a very impressive performance in a hotly contested Women’s Nationals, placing 3rd overall and her 6th consecutive podium at the National event.

Team Manager Glenn Macdonald said on review of the team’s results “We scored some really impressive results under trying circumstances this season. Some of our riders suffered injury along the way and many of the classes we contested were ultra competitive. I am extremely proud of all of the efforts of our riders, their families as well as our team sponsors who all form a very special part of this team. Congratulations extends to all involved.”

GMR Motorex KTM will soon announce its rider line-up for 2013, along with some changes to the team’s direction.
