———————————————————————————-
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.

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.

#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, 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.

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.

RRAT would like to introduce our 1st Junior Corporate Challange Rider and Sponsor

#57 Rhys Warner and iPlumb Plumbing Services
Congratulations Rhys and thankyou to 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 10 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…

Just a quick thank you to everyone who came together today to make our Practice Day very successful. A totally beautiful day at the track. I think everyone will agree they got in plenty of laps. Everyone was keen to see their times and it was great having printouts of lap times and speed. To everyone that helped out today, thank you. To all the riders, well done, you all rode like champions. And the best bit, no crashes, just a few little bingles - makes my paperwork dead easy. Well done, a great joint effort. ... See MoreSee Less
