For immediate release - 11 January 2016


Nineteen year old James Dimmock has enjoyed a strong debut in the open ranks of the Australian Speedway Championships across the New Year, locking down five points in the extremely competitive qualifying round of the 2016 series.

While the points haul wasn’t enough to see the aspiring speedway rider qualify for the Open competition in the National Series this time around, it was an honourable showing on debut and saw the Canberran leave Kurri Kurri Raceway with plenty of new lessons to put towards his future pursuits.

“I had never competed in the open title before so to even have the opportunity to qualify was a big step for me and one that I was very excited to have,” said Dimmock.

“I finished up on five points for the night and while that wasn’t enough to make the series I was very happy with the way that I rode and I learnt a lot.

“I still can’t think of any better way to kick off my 2016 than being a part of the prestigious Australian Speedway Championships, and I can’t wait to try again in the future."

Committed to reaching his ultimate dream of representing Australia in the World Championships, nineteen year old Speedway competitor James Dimmock is not only a racer ‘through and through’, but also an accomplished leader and public speaker despite his young years.

Racing since the age of four, James was ranked amongst the country’s top five dirt bike racers before he decided to make the switch to speedway at the age of 17. That same year – his last as a Marist College student – the Canberran was recognized through not only his appointment as a School Captain responsible for representing his school and regularly speaking to crowds of more than 2000, but also with prestigious awards for both leadership and community service.

With proven skills when it comes to both racing on the track and representing his supporters off it, James is now laser-focused upon building an international speedway career representing his beloved Australia on the world stage. In pursuit of this dream, James is currently undertaking intensive training with three-time world champion Jason Crump while competing in a comprehensive race program in Australia as he makes plans to travel to Europe to begin an international assault.
