MA announce former AFL boss Ross Oakley to Chair 'Whole of Sport Review'

ma logo 358x210 f9593cPresident of Motorcycling Australia (MA) Braxton Laine today announced Ross Oakley (OAM) will Chair the 'Whole of Sport Review' (WoSR) of motorcycle sport in Australia.

“The time is right for all the stakeholders of motorcycling in Australia to think more long-term and this needs to be reflected in our strategic planning. We need a clear business strategy and associated financial model that will enable us to capitalise on the high profile of our sport and one that will also help boost our participation base.” Laine said.

“Ross Oakley is eminently qualified to lead this review having served as the Chairman of the Commission and CEO of the VFL/Australian Football League from 1986 until 1996. In his recently released book, ‘The Phoenix Rises’, he discussed his role in creating a national game and overseeing the expansion of the competition into the powerhouse it is today.

“His communication skills and ability to work with all of the sports' stakeholders will be critical in ensuring the review identifies solutions for the long term future of the sport in this country.

“MA met last week in Melbourne with the Presidents and CEOs of all our State Controlling Bodies. It was heartening to see first-hand the enthusiastic support and commitment that these members have for the upcoming review.

Hannaford Family Trials Scholarship

It was with great interest I recently heard about the Hannaford family handing over a brand new Beta Factory 250 to young Zac Mularczyk.

Very rarely has an individual done this. 100% sponsorship even for the top riders in trials is unheard of in Australia. In road racing Jack Waters was a legend for doing this also. Many would remember him for sponsoring Graham Geddes who raced internationally with his support also.
I wanted to share some insight into the program and the selection criteria. There must be others of us in the trials community that have had decades of enjoyment and support that could do similar with a young rider, individually, form a syndicate or contact an importer to assist.

The following are some questions and answers from both Matt Hannaford and Zac Mularczyk, to hopefully give everyone an understanding of the Hannaford Family Trials Scholarship on offer to a deserving young trials rider.

Pete Wines smoking up Wildwood Hill Climb

The Kenny Racing Extreme Trial / Golden Tyre Hill Climb was held on the 22nd-23rd November at Wildwood, just north of Melbourne Airport.

The results for the event are attached — In Expert class Adrian Harry (SA) cleaned up, Peter Wines (VIC) took out Clubman and Victorian rider Hilary Stephens had the endurance to take out the Women's class. A special mention must go to Kristie McKinnon (NSW) who set the fastest time up the hill on a Trials bike. Pete Wines rode the same time of 35 seconds up the hill, but with a few extra dabs. Junior rider David McDonald at just 12 years old set the next fastest time and is a rider to keep an eye out for.

Check out the photos and videos from the event attached below.
