13-year-old Elijah Andrew (Marayong) has not only achieved his best race finish but also his best round finish at Phillip Island on Saturday 21st October, placing 6th in Race 1 and an unlucky 15th in Race 2, for 9th place overall.

Race 3 was cancelled due to high winds and the rearrangement of the MotoGP races.

Running as the only support group for the MotoGP weekend, the young riders from the Oceania Junior Cup group again provided hard-fought, entertaining and close battles on their identical machines.

Elijah’s 6th placing in Race 1 was the best finish of his career to date and another good result looked on the cards for Race 2, until another rider coming from an off-track incident collided with Elijah, knocking him off the track.

Elijah recovered but could not make up the lost positions, finishing in 15th position for the race and 9th overall for the weekend.

The OJC riders return to Phillip Island this week 27th-29th October.
