Scott has the racer's edge

FOR every person in sport, great and small, the way to get noticed is to keep on winning.

Actually, in eight years of dirt track racing, Scott Anlezark has won something - somewhere - every year he has been competing and it has earned him the rare distinction of picking up a Honda sponsorship.

Coffs Harbour Honda has rebuilt his bike and now the sky's the limit for the 17-year-old from Safety Beach, after completing two years in seniors.

“I'm really confident about how things will go in the new season,” Scott said.

“There are plenty of events coming up in 2009 making for a heavy schedule and I'll also be doing appearances at the Honda Shop during the season as part of the agreement.”

During the last eight years racing in Grafton and four years of competition at the Jacaranda Dirt Drags, Scott has won a championship in different classes every season.

But the last event was his best ever, winning two classes and finishing second in the unlimited class for the Sullo Shield.

Scott was unbeaten all day, with his best time 8.25 seconds. Also competing at Coffs Harbour Motorcycle Club for 11 years, Scott is currently placed third in 450cc class and fourth in opens.
