THIRTEEN year-old Alex Adamson (Emu Plains) is described as one of the most exciting young Speedway and Dirt Track riders in the sport, racking up accolades in both disciplines whilst racing at the top level in Australia.

With some impressive results under his belt since taking up riding at age 4, Alex is continued to impress in 2022 and is tipped to both experience and enjoy a big future in motorcycling racing.

His 2022 results for both Speedway and Dirt Track make impressive reading, highlighted by finishing first in the Victorian 250cc Speedway Solo Championship (13-15 years), second in the Australian 250cc Track Championship (13 – U16 Years)

1st – Phil Crump Solo Classic – 250cc Speedway – 13-15 years), third in the Australian Dirt Track Championship (13-15 years) and third in the NSW 250cc Speedway Solo Championship (13-15 years), with the latter achieved on his debut performance on a 250cc motorcycle.

Other top finishes in 2022 include: 2nd in NSW 250cc Speedway Solo Super Series (Rd-1)13-15 years); 2nd in the Darcy Ward Speedway Championship – 250cc Speedway – (13-15 years); 3rd – Casey Stoner Cup – 250cc Dirt Track – (13-15 years); 3rd in Central Coast Cup – 250cc Dirt Track – (13-15 years)

Alex attends Nepean Creative Performing Arts High School – auditioned student for rock/electric guitar, his home club is the City of Penrith Motorcycle Club (CPMCC), his home track is the Nepean Raceway, Castlereagh and his dual career ambitions are to become a Professional Speedway rider, and an Electrician.

His biggest and certainly most ardent supporters are dad Matt, mum Kylie and brother Jacob.

“We have a busy schedule for the remainder of the year, we are at the pointy end, especially for Speedway,” said Alex’ father Matt Adamson.
