O’Shannassy Made for Speedway

It was no wonder why Junior Quarter Midgets racer Koby O’Shannassy wanted to pursue competitive racing, having grown up in the speedway oriented town of Warrnambool in the south-west coast of Victoria.

After an impressive debut season in Novice A in the 2015-16 season, which saw him come away with two feature-race wins and consistently finish amongst the top three, seven-year-old O’Shannassy made the move into the 120cc Open class, where he has experienced a character building, but promising season, which has been highlighted by a fourth-place finish in the recent Australian Grand Prix.

Mentor Matheson

As one of the older drivers in his category, Junior Quarter Midgets racer PJ Matheson has taken it upon himself to be something of a mentor for his younger counterparts, helping to build their confidence by giving them as much advice as possible.

Currently running in the 160cc Open class, the 13 year old, from Werribee in Melbourne’s south-west, knows exactly what it’s like to be a newcomer to speedway racing and as such, he continually makes a conscious effort to help his fellow racers, taking them out on to the track during private practice sessions to allow them to race against him and put his tips into practice, therefore giving them added experience and confidence to pull off racing manoeuvres, such as taking to the highline to pass competitors on the outside.
