The annual Casey Stoner Cup meeting is being staged this weekend and the likes of talented Singleton youngsters, Billy Van Eerde and Ryan Smith are set to compete in the lead up to New South Wales Junior Track Championships in June.
Kurri Kurri Junior Motor Cycle Club honours its former member who went on to become Moto GP world champion at their Loxford Park Raceway, situated on Dickson Road this Saturday and Sunday.
While the senior racing will take the spotlight, junior action should be equally intense particularly as riders will use this weekend as a warm-up for the New South Wales Junior Track Championships to be staged at the same venue on the June long weekend.
The junior entries include numerous state and national champions, including a large contingent from north of the border.
Van Eerde heads the entries for the older junior classes, with his toughest opposition again likely to come from Queenslander, Harry Maxwell.
In the younger age classes, local riders like Smith, will need to use all their local knowledge in the face of opposition from Queensland, and other New South Wales clubs.
Riders’ briefing and practice gets underway at 9.30 am Saturday and action continues on in to Sunday.
For fans it is a cheap day out, either Saturday or Sunday, with just a $5.00 per car entry, and a gold coin for motorcycles, with full canteen facilities available.
Good luck boys!
