Ty targets racing success at dirt bike day

TY Gardner recorded three seconds in the 450cc open class at the Warwick District Dirt Bike Club day on Sunday at Morgan Park.

The 16-year-old Warwick State High School student only graduated to the seniors this year.

He was sixth in the Shell Advance Series in juniors last year and is third after the first round of this year's series in the 21 years and under clubman open class.

Gardner said he was keen to be graded up to intermediate this year.

"My aim is to make the pro class and see what happens from there," he said.

He will compete in round 2 of the series at Hervey Bay this weekend.

Club president Andrew Williams said, of the 150 riders who competed on Sunday, 30 hail from the Warwick area.

"Each rider had three rides on each of their bikes," he said.

Riders are able to contest three classes on the one day with different bikes so some had nine races.

Twenty seven riders attending a coaching clinic on Saturday.
