HIGHLANDER Michael Driscoll recently competed in the opening round of the MX Nationals Junior Cup.

The cup was held as part of the Australian MX National Championships.

Driscoll competed on his Yamaha YZ205F at the event in Horsham, Victoria.

He qualified in fifth place after having a tough trot in practise.

Driscoll had an ordinary start to the race, getting shut out in the first corner which took him back to sixth or eighth place.

However, he fought his way through to second on a track which Driscoll described as one of the toughest he had seen in racing.

“I am so happy to come away with a second overall and to get through the moto (event) in one piece,” Driscoll said.

“I had a bad qualifying and practise as it did not go to plan at all in most spots, but to qualify fifth was a great way to start the day.”

Driscoll said he was happy to secure a second place finish.

“I put in a little charge to give myself a little gap and settled in to second as I knew I was not going to catch first,” he said.

“I was so happy to come away with this result in the first round, not only for myself but for my sponsors, family and people around me.

“I have learnt a lot from this race and will go back to the training track to work on what I need to do for round two at Appin Motorcycle Complex in two weeks time.”

Driscoll thanked his sponsors for the ongoing support.

“I would like to thank Power Sports Central Yamaha Racing, Yamaha Australia, GYTR Australia, The Realty Group Macarthur, BIKTEK, Pirelli Tyres Australia, i Pone Oils, Vortex Ignitions, Funnel Webb Filters, Tee N Cee Graphics, my family and all of the good people around me,” he said.
