———————————————————————————-
Hi my name is Jack Pemberton. I am 13 years old and I am in Year 8 at Pimlico State High School. My first bike was a Honda CF70, and I rode it around the bush with my Dad and brother (Will). I went out to the track to watch a friend race at the Townsville 200, and I decided that I wanted to have a go at racing. I completed my KickStart programme and started racing Supermoto on a YZ85. I have been racing for 2 years, and last year was my first full year in the Junior Corporate Challenge series. In 2016 I travelled as much as possible, and I enjoyed competing at other tracks around North Queensland, and I was also a Finalist in the MQ Awards for Junior Road Race and Supermoto Lite classes. One of the things I like about racing is that I can enjoy it with my whole family: my Dad and brother race, my sister has a sidecar and loves to cheer everyone on, and my Mum keeps us all organised! Last year I enjoyed the support of Procut Meats, and I am very proud to announce that they are my sponsor in the JCC again this year. I am looking forward to the 2017 race season, and my goal is to improve on my times in the 3 classes I compete in.

Congratulations James and thankyou Furture Sport Motorcycles.

James JCC

———————————————————————
Hi, my name is James Venables, I’m 14 years of age and I’m in my 3rd year of high school. I’ve been racing for 4 years, third is my 5th year now and ever since I’ve absolutely loved it. I started off at FNQ Road Racing Club in Mareeba on a Honda CRF50f then I upgraded to a Suzuki JR80 and eventually a Honda CRF125f. Milton Carrol from FNQ told my Dad about the FNQ Road Racing Club in Mareeba and then offered if I would be interested. My family and I went up to one of the Practice Days and I really enjoyed it even though I was the only junior ever going up and riding for three and a half years. One year at a Practice/Coaching day, two boys from RRAT (Road Racing Association Townsville) came up, Rhys Warner and Ryan Moscardini. I then found their race dates online and went to the next race meet. The first day I went down to race in Townsville was a Practice/ Coaching Day and I was really surprised at how many juniors there were. I really enjoyed my first race up there with not only myself but other juniors. Ever since my first race at RRAT, I’ve been continuing to ride down in Townsville since August 2016. Last year, I was nominated for the Top 3 Best and Fairest Junior SuperMoto Riders 2016. I was so thankful and proud of the award in Queensland which took me to Brisbane to collect my award that placed me 3rd in Queensland. This year I’m definitely more serious and I have decided to put more effort into my racing and so my parents bought me a KTM 85sx and that has really improved my racing and speed. RRAT has supplied me with a CFmoto 150nk to race in the Junior Corporate Challenge and I am forever thankful for them. I’ve made so many new friends since I’ve joined RRAT and I think of them as my second family. The Road Racing Association of Townsville has done so many good things for me such as supplying me with a new motorbike and leathers. In the past 10 months I’ve been there, I have really loved it and I have enjoyed myself heaps, with not only racing, but making new friends and the support I get from them and my family. RRAT has made me realise that I would definitely stay with them for the rest of my racing career. I would like to give a huge thank you to Future Sport Townsville for being my sponsor this year as it means a lot to me to have your support and also a huge thanks to Jarod for making it possible.

Jayke and JR pic

Hi my name is Jayke, I’m 14 and my racing number is 203.
I have ridden motorbikes since I was 8, my first bike was a Suzuki 50 four wheeler that I rode around the backyard then I moved to a CRF50, KTM 65, Suzuki 85 and then a KTM 85 2015.
I was introduced to dirt track racing though friends that I went to school with and really enjoyed it.
I started road racing in 2015 on the black sachs 150 and raced it for that year.
May 2016 on a dirt track race day I had a bad accident and ended up with a compression fracture in my back in two different places and that took me out of motorbike racing for the year.
Now in 2017 I am riding a CF moto 150 NK and loving it.
Thanks for JR Motorcycles for sponsoring me and I can’t wait to ride with my mates.

Will Streetwise_005 web

Hi my name is Will Pemberton. I am 12 years old and this year I started Year 7 at Pimlico State High School. I started racing Supermoto last year with the RRAT and this will be my first year in the JCC. My very first bike was a Honda 50 then a Honda 70. I used to ride them about the bush with my Dad and brother. I got into racing after my brother started racing. I gave Go-karts a go but I like the bikes much better.
I really enjoy the racing because of the great people and the travelling around we get to do.
I’m really excited about riding for Streetwise Motorbike Training this year and look forward to improving my times, getting on the podium and making Streetwise proud.
I wish all of the JCC riders the best of luck this year and can’t wait to get out on the track.

#57 Rhys Warner and iPlumb Plumbing Services
Congratulations Rhys and thankyou to iPlumb.

Rhys iPlumb

Hi all, my name is Rhys Warner, I am about to turn 15 yrs and I attend Tsv State High year 10.
I was first introduced to racing motor cycles (2014) by my grandfather (Brian “Huff” Warner) who also races (slowly,haha !) He taught me how to change gears, as I had only ridden auto bikes before that. I did the kick start program and started racing on a Sachs kn 150 and moved onto the clubs new CF Moto 150. I have also raced a Honda H100 (bucket bike) and a Yamaha yzf 150 in the Lites class. I am currently getting a Honda Cbr 250 in shape to race in Historics. This bike, if I do well with my schooling and improve my riding, Pop has agreed to take me with him to the Historic racing at Eastern Creek in Sydney in 2018.

I enjoy racing with all the people at RRAT and have made new friends and travelled to other tracks in the N.Q. area. My aim for the future is to be a better rider and perhaps one day, ride all the major race tracks in Australia. My other interests are playing football (league and AFL) waterskiing, snorkelling and eating (according to Pop !!) I now work, part time at IGA Garbutt and hope to start with TecNQ with the hope to become a plumber.

Rhys Warner is now in his third year of racing with RRAT. Starting with not having ridden a bike with gears he quickly learned, with tuition from the club, to move on to gather in some places and a few wins.

iPlumb, Liam and Christie Smith have run their local plumbing business for !0 years in T/Ville and service all types of clients, domestic/commercial and retail and have a 24hr call out service. Liam is a dedicated motorsports fan and participant, racing a 1969 Mazda turbo charged rotary R100 on drag strips across N.Q. and also a dedicated road rider on his Triumph Speed Triple. Christie divides her time between being a mum to her daughters,( Ivy-lee and Hazel) and being the business manager for iPlumb.

iPlumb has been a sponsor of the annual RRAT Tourist Trophy since its inception and is now proud to support the Junior Corporate Challenge through rider Rhys Warner.
Current 250cc Production Club Champion (Stafford Beals) is also sponsored by iPlumb.

iPlumb wishes all participants in the JCC, a safe years racing and in particular, Rhys Warner a year of good results…

 

RRAT would also like to thank the following sponsors for their ongoing support.

Hi RRATs, our re-scheduled date for Round 2 Closed to Club is Saturday 22 July. This was the date in our calendar for a coaching/practice day, but will now become Round 2 of our club championships. ... See MoreSee Less

View on Facebook

So, we know what everyone is thinking, the sky is blue, the sun is shining. A beautiful day for racing. However just spare a thought for the chosen few who would have had to get out yesterday and today to organize and start the process to ensure a great day of racing.
The ground is sodden behind the containers where all our gear is stored let alone getting the van out, which has a few leaks of its own, and the track has lots of dirt and rocks washed onto it. More things to consider than just turning up and racing on the day.
Keep the faith. A rescheduled date will be advertised as soon as we can co-ordinate the track, first aid and officials. Stay tuned.🌞
Thank you Christine.

The first round of the AutoSmart NQSCC hosted by the RRAT was run and won on Saturday. A great meeting that ran like clockwork, thanks to everyone that came together to make it happen, officials, the Restored Motorcycle Club members for flagging, timekeepers, everybody; without your participation, these meetings would never run so well. Also, thank you to the riders, locals and travellers, you all put on a great spectacle, some really tight racing out there. It was exciting to watch.

A big thank you to Nick Fordham, AutoSmart, for sponsoring our event. It is a privilege to have you on board for the series. All results and times will be uploaded to MyLaps/Speed Hive ASAP.
As soon as Linda and myself get the chance, we will collate all the club points and post. Be patient though, maybe in the next week or two.

I know there is the fun rivalry between the clubs, but it comes down to catching up with great mates and friendly faces as well as different competitors to race against. Lots of happy racers at the end of the night, of course a few bikes not so happy, but that's racing.

Is everybody is keen to do this all again at WMSC Round 2 on 1st July? All going to plan, practice on the Friday, and Saturday racing. A full timetable will be published closer to the event. Plenty of time to get those bikes repaired and bones mended before we all meet again.

Oh by the way, Round 2 Closed to Club is scheduled for the 20 May. All nominations received for Round 1 will be honoured for Round 2, but a quick pm or phone call would be appreciated just to clarify your spot on the grid. Head on over to KayGee Photography on Facebook to checkout all the great videos and photos from the race meeting. If you're not in a photo, you weren't there. LOL.

Just a quick race "wrap-up" from Round 1 on Sunday. There was great racing in all fields, 33 riders taking the track. Perfect weather at the track to don leathers and take to the bitumen.
Of course, a big thank you to the key officials (the likely trio) as well as everyone else who came together to make this day happen.
A special thank you to the members of Coral Coast Riders who travelled down to Townsville and volunteered their time flagging and taking some awesome pictures. There were photographers at almost all turns of the track on Sunday, so stay tuned for some great action shots. Also Chris and Ashley from WMSC who travelled just to help out the club. Awesome!!
Unfortunately a few bingles. Everyone here at the RRAT wishes Matt and Sandi a speedy recovery and hope to see them back on the track. A few broken bones between the two of them, so get well soon guys.
Just a reminder, we have a busy racing calendar for the next few weeks. Next Saturday 6 May is our NQSCC (previously known as the Interclub) Round 1 at Suncity Raceway, see the FB Event for entry details and then 20 May, Rd 2 Closed to Club. Hope to see everyone back at the track next week so we can do it all over again.
