Speedy Scott has his eyes on the prize
By BRAD GREENSHIELDS
CLIMBING up the rankings among the country's elite junior dirt track racers has suddenly become a whole lot easier for Woolgoolga's Scott Anlezark.
The 15-year-old has been awarded a sponsorship deal by Honda Australia and now he's riding the latest and greatest dirt track bike that the company can offer.
Anlezark is now going to into his races with a 2007-model Honda 250F, the only one of it's type that's going around the clubs in Northern NSW.
"The bike's great, it's hell good, unbeatable," the Year 10 student enthused.
Anlezark has been riding bikes since he was only three and had his first race at the tender age of six aboard a trusty PeeWee 50.
Now in the top 10 for his age group, Anlezark is looking forward to joining the senior ranks next year as well as chasing bigger and better dreams.
"I want to follow what Casey Stoner has done and go do Moto GP," he said.
"Dad has a friend who does bucket racing which is the first step to road racing so I want to give that a go soon."
The way that his already burgeoning resume has impressed Coffs Harbour Lawn Care and through them, Honda Australia, it's not beyond the realms of the imagination that this 250F won't be the last bike this talented racer will be on the receiving end of.
