Aussie Tom Edwards gets a Superprestigio Dirt Track event start
Junior Champion motorcycle racer, Tom Edwards, has just been given a dream start in the hugely popular Superprestigio Dirt Track event in Barcelona, Spain this weekend.

Tom is currently a guest of the Spanish Grau Suzuki Racing team who Ferran Cardus is the teams star rider. After attending training sessions with Ferran and Baker, Tom impressed the Spanish with his dirt track skills making a strong case to be included in the event. At fifteen?, Tom is possibly the youngest rider to be invited to compete at the Superprestigio and follows in the footsteps of another Australian, former Superbike World Champion, Troy Bayliss who raced the event two years ago.

Tom is extremely grateful to the Card̼s family for hosting his stay along with Brad Baker for his guidance and support. He would especially like to thank Grau Suzuki for giving him a fantastic SUZUKI DTX race machine and to the organizer for making his dreams come true.

‰ÛÏI can‰Ûªt wait to ride with some of the worlds best. I‰Ûªm really looking forward to working closely with my friends Brad Baker and Masa Ohmori. It will be the first chance to race alongside some European riders which is super exciting," Edwards said.

The race will be held on December 17th at the Palau Sant Jordi Stadium in Barcelona.

You can watch the Superprestigio Live on Fox Sports 3:10am ‰ÛÒ 12pm Sunday 18th Dec (Check guides).
