Plenty of action at Action Park

BEAU Pearson's race number is 692.

You can be sure that the 15-year-old Maryborough State High School student wouldn't mind winning that number of races in his motorbike career.

He's already well on his way.

Pearson, who only started racing competitively two years ago, once again showed his potential at Maryborough's Action Park.

He powered his way to winning two junior races during round two of the Maryborough Motorcyclists Club Dirt Track Series.

He made it consecutive victories in the 200-250cc four-stroke division after he won the same event in round one last month.

That performance was backed up by a win in the 100-150cc two-stroke division.

Maryborough Motorcyclists Club secretary and race steward, Tony Cougle, said Pearson was in top-form during the meeting.

“He rode very impressively and he was fast,” Cougle said.

“There is no doubt he's got a big future in front of him.”

Andrea Pearson said her young son just loved the sport.

“He's taken to it like a duck to water,” she laughed.

“He's a having a ball and I am sure he'll continue to.”

However, Pearson wasn't the only member of the Maryborough club to power across the finish line first on the day.

Dave McDonald and Mike Jones both won events in the senior ranks, while junior rider, Tyson Allen, also earned himself a chequered flag.

More than 50 junior and senior riders from throughout south-east Queensland hit the track to contest various classes on the day.

Round three of the series is next month.
