BCP Pro Circuit Honda back to full strength for Cobram Vics
A welcome return to state level racing for Morgan Fogarty this weekend will bring the BCP Pro Circuit Honda Junior Development Team back to full strength as the season approaches its half way point.
Fogarty started the season unbeaten with three wins on the trot on board his Honda CRF150R however a mid week practice incident left the 14 year old with a broken lower leg and out for eight weeks.
A full recovery and recent race win at the Wonthaggi round of the Gippsland Centre Series will see Fogarty confident entering this weekend’s Round 3 of the Victorian State Junior MX Championships at Cobram MCC.
“I’m really looking forward to lining up this weekend,” said Fogarty.
“It was great to get that first race out of the way a couple of weekends ago at Wonthaggi but the state titles are always a good test to see how you are travelling.”
Fogarty’s team-mates Taj Marshall and Jai Constantinou currently sit fourth and fifth overall in the 250cc A grade title chase. Constantinou has been the surprise package of the series in his rookie 250 year with two consistent fourth place finishes at rounds one and two of the state titles while also wrapping up the recent Amateur Nationals at the Horsham Motorcycle Club.
Taj Marshall has had an up and down title campaign so far with flashes of brilliance including three separate races finishing in second place however some untimely crashes has shifted him back in the points. Marshall has proved to be one of the best starters in the class with lap times often on top of the leader-board and will push for consistency this weekend at Cobram.
All three junior team riders have been working hard during the break and will aim to fill that middle step of the podium this weekend at Cobram.
The fourth and final round of the Victorian State MX Championships will be held at the Blue Rock Circuit on August 1st and 2nd
