For immediate release - 31 December 2015


James Dimmock will be putting his New Year’s Resolution into action right from the get go, with the very first day of 2016 set to see the Canberran looking to qualify for his first Australian Speedway Championships.

New Year’s Day will host the qualifying round for the 2016 Australian Speedway Championships at Kurri Kurri Raceway, with Dimmock hoping to qualify for the four-round series which kicks off the very next day (Saturday 2 January) at the same venue. 

“I have never competed in an open title at this level before, so I am really excited and looking forward to racing against some of Australia’s best,” said Dimmock. “There will be big crowds and a lot of professional teams at Kurri Kurri and I can’t wait to get in amongst it.

“I am doing everything I can to get to my dream of representing Australia in Europe, and competing in the Australian Championships is an important step in that journey.

“I have been racing as much as I can over the last 12 months and training hard with three-time world champ Jason Crump, so I am hoping that I can pull it all together to get my 2016 started off in the best way possible by securing my spot in the Aus Champs.

“At the end of the day, I have nothing to lose, so I will be throwing everything I have at it this Friday.”

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.
